Life of a cop in the National Revolutionary Police of Cuba aint' easy. You have to deal with tourists, political dissidents, drug traffickers, and the inner power struggles of the force.
But all that is like a dream of a distant tropical summer. Something happened. Something snapped. Rodrigo left. Let his home and his life behind, and ventured to the uncertain land called the United States. The Empire.
He arrived totally, completely unaware. And that is changing, for good or ill, very fast.
Rodrigo patrols the streets of Haven with a cheerful, at times borderline hysterical demeanor. Apparently unaffiliated, he slips through the cracks of societies uncertaingly, beneath much notice -- aware of how easy it is for a lone man to be crushed. He serves with deputies Joan Maeda and Jericho Witter.
