Born and raised in East L.A., Hector Ramone became a drug dealer, eventually moving to the Central American country of San Domingo. There, he became leader of a cartel that backed Captain de Ortega's regime. At some point, he became abusive and murdered his wife, driving his son Estaban to flee from him.
He went to live with DEA agent Quincy Jefferson and his wife Angela, for which Ramone had the Jeffersons assassinated and their daughter Laura kidnapped. This drew the attention of the Punisher, who had been friends of the Jeffersons in Saigon during the Vietnam War. With Estaban's help, Laura was rescued and Ramone died in a confrontation with the Punisher, who later murdered de Ortega as well.
