2007: East Asian Crisis Edit
At some point, Captain Diego had the Maria Narcissa pick up Hugo Lacerda, who was present at the Punta Blanco Lighthouse in Peru. Third Echelon found this out after sending in a Splinter Cell on a mission to the lighthouse to make sure the information that Bruce Morgenholt, who was tortured and interrogated near the lighthouse, never got out. The Splinter Cell, Sam Fisher, was picked up by a helicopter from the USS Clarence E. Walsh (with help from the captain, Arthur Partridge) in order to be dropped in the path of the Maria Narcissa. Captain Diego, during the voyage to their destination, decided to allow Hugo Lacerda and his mercenaries to stay in his quarters for the duration of the travel. Captain Diego was present at the helm, with another crewman, as Sam Fisher infiltrated the cargo ship.
Captain Diego was an experienced sea captain, although it is unknown how long he had been the captain of the Maria Narcissa. Going by how he transported arms and drugs, as well as his associations with the People's Voice, and aiding their leader, Diego wasn't a stranger to breaking the law. Captain Diego also knew how to transport drugs, stashing them in cheap coffee to avoid detection between smuggling and regular cargo checks.
- Captain Diego's fate is largely up to the player, if he is interrogated, he will die even if the player knocks him out. Using non-lethal gadgets, such as the Sticky Shocker or a Ring Airfoil Projectile, will still cause him to die. His death is confirmed by using thermal vision to examine his corpse after some time.
- Captain Diego uses cheap coffee to better hide drugs that the Maria Narcissa regularly transports, much to the annoyance of some of some of the guards on the cargo ship.
