Nothing is known of Manolo's early life. He was likely born in Mexico and at some point turned to a life of crime, joining the Rojo family cartel based in the border town of San Miguel. He assisted them in their operations smuggling alcohol into the United States.
A Fistful of Dollars
Manolo may have participated in the massacre of Mexican soldiers along the Rio Bravo, led by Ramón Rojo. He also may have been present during the shoot-out between the Rojo and Baxter crime families in the cemetery near the town.
Later, following the Stranger's betrayal of the Rojo family, they set the Baxter family home alight and massacre any survivors attempting to flee the blaze; Manolo may have been among the bandits present. Manolo and Alvaro are ordered by Ramón personally to accompany him while he searches the estate for the Stranger, following his escape.
Manolo was likely among those killed in the ensuing exchange of gunfire between the Rojo gang and the Stranger.
