Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez (simply Tuco) is a mercenary captain hired by John Bishop in 2241.


He is located in the Mercenaries' cave. Tuco is dressed in combat armor. His armor and weapons look well-maintained, almost new.[1] He is a mercenary captain, scanning the area and fingering his weapon.[2]

His dog tags as well as those of Angel-Eyes and Blondie can be used to open the raiders safe, as a piece of the lock combination has been printed on each of them.
