Campaign of the Month: October 2017
Blood & Bourbon
M. Ruben Velásquez
Mysophobic FBI agent & slasher hunter
“Millie over here was grown in a test tube, bred specifically to take down [criminals] like these. Isn’t that right, Agent Velásquez?”
Velásquez: “Fontaine, who is your favorite literary character?”
Velásquez: “Mine is Inspector Javert. Remember that in case you feel tempted to commit any further petty crimes in my vicinity.”
M. Ruben Velásquez to Louis Fontaine
A VASCU Supervisory Special Agent, Velásquez is in charge of NOLA’s Field Liaison Department. His parents were Panamanian immigrants following the United States’ 1989 invasion who, in a bizarre act of gratitude and linguistic confusion, named their son after President Henry Marshall’s dog, Millie.
Agent Velásquez is a hardline, hard-nosed, hard-case FBI agent known for idolizing J. Edgar Hoover and Ronald Reagan, coveting Paul Dempsey’s job, and ruthlessly intimidating, exploiting, and discarding rogue hunter cells. Less well-known is that he has obsessive-compulsive disorder with contamination fears that lead him to always wear bright blue latex crime-scene gloves: both to prevent contamination with other’s vital fluids, but also to hide the raw skin from his excessively, compulsively washed hands.
