“Because our country is like this grenade, except it has two basic parts. Our people, and you. And you must clutch them nice and tight, or we all go boom.”
Far Cry 6
Fifty years ago, Antón's father was El Presidente of Yara. A revolution occurred, and Antón's father was executed right in front of him. As a result, Antón grew up with the view that the island was stolen from his family. And given that the five decades which followed saw Yara experience economic decline, Antón saw it as proof that only the Castillo family could save the island. As such, he became El Presidente himself, under the promise that he could rebuild Yara into the country it had been fifty years ago. However, he began to run things with an iron fist, and those who spoke out against his methods were taken into forced labor. Economic sanctions were imposed on the country in response, which led to unrest. Responding in turn, Antón tightened his grip on the island.
Antón remains determined to restore Yara to its former glory, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Antón and Diego's oppressive actions have resulted in revolution. He is grooming Diego to take his place to succeed him.
