* His biography :
    The Chief of the Parita Guaymi tribe.
   The Spanish conquistadors found three distinct Guaymi tribes in western Panama, each named after its chief. The three big chiefs were Urraca, who ruled in what is now Veraguas Province; Nata, in the territory of the Province of Cocle; and Parita, in the Azuero Peninsula.
   Guaymi, signifying "man," is a Chibchan tribe or group of tribes (Guaymi-Dorasque subfamily), in the Republic of Panama from David Bay on the Pacific coast and the Río Guaymi on the Atlantic side eastward to about the present Chame and Salud. The following are given as subdivisions or tribes: Doleguas (on Río Chiriqui), Move (east of Río Chiriqui), Muoi (south of Chiriqui Lagoon), Murire (about the Gulf of Chiriqui), Muite, Pariza (?), Penomeño (on the Gulf of Parita).

* His place in the Barks/Rosa stories universe :
    In "The Sharpie of the Culebra Cut", this character has a very bad relationship with Scrooge, who, while doing trade with him, tries to swindle him. He has more cordial concerns with Theodore Roosevelt, who comes to his house to ask him to show him on a map where a treasure is hidden under Scrooge's mountain. He knocks General Esteban down when he tries to steal a part of the treasure and sends him back to Colombia.
   He also appears on "Les Inédits de Don Rosa #33", an illustration for this story.
