Miguel lived his life
as a lone wolf and detested the idea of answering to anyone. Despite being born
into a conservative Spanish family, his reckless and unruly nature made him a black sheep in
the family. The discord between Miguel and his parents caused him to run away at
the age of 15 and take residence at a bar owned by an acquaintance. Although he
has no formal martial arts training, Miguel has an intense passion for fighting.
In spite of his family
dysfunction, Miguel kept in contact with his younger sister, who he grew to
trust and treasure. On the darker side, Miguel's over-protective concern for
his sister was extreme... He almost wanted to kill her boyfriend when he heard
the news that they were to be married. On the day of the marriage, Miguel was
unable and unwilling to stand with his parents and participate in the service.
Instead, he watched from outside the church. Looking around, Miguel noticed the
sky was blue as far as the eye could see and the planes overhead seemed to be a
serene part of the festivities. Then suddenly, a blast of intense heat engulfed
the area. Miguel was knocked back and sustained intense pain throughout his
body, but rushed to the church to search for his sister.
When he found her, her
dress was stained crimson red and air no longer filled her lungs. Miguel's
screams echoed through the smoldering rubble that was once the church. After
hearing that the aerial attack had been the work of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Miguel
gave-in to dark thoughts, loathing and hatred, and swore revenge upon Jin Kazama.
