How El Jefe joined the Tourney
El Jefe was a high-ranking mercenary commander who had managed to conquer many countries across the entire world, selling them to the highest bidder. Being a military strategist of the highest rank, he once boasted that he was capable of conquering a country using only three blind mice armed with nothing more than plastic spoons. El Jefe vanished into obscurity sometime after INTERPOL forces were closing in on his operation.
After doing so, he was more than likely contacted and hired by Cyrille Le Paradox to take on the task of erasing Rioichi Cooper from history. El Jefe was more than likely the fiend who poisoned the feudal era's shogun's sushi in order to frame Rioichi and have him thrown in jail. Then at some point, El Jefe constructed a 1,000 foot statue of himself, showing he thinks highly of himself, most likely using a time machine to travel back in time. He imprisoned Rioichi, who was then freed by Sly and helped the Cooper Gang overthrow El Jefe. Before being defeated and taken to jail, El Jefe stole and gave Rioichi's cane to Le Paradox, who escaped with his blimp. At the end of the game, it is revealed that he was transferred to a South American prison, given a job rolling cigars, but forbidden to smoke them, much to his annoyance.
Somehow, El Jefe was freed before the second Tourney. He sought to make Groh his enforcer by force if necessary.
