Blood and Bourbon
M. Ruben Velásquez
Mysophobic FBI agent & slasher hunter
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 Bush’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 aways 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.
