Beyond the Mountains of Madness
Camp Crew Worker
He is a burly man with an extraordinarily barrel-like chest. As wide as the proverbial barn door, Cruz is not the brightest member of the expedition, but he interprets instructions well, solves problems ingeniously and with humor, and is seemingly untiring. Raised on the bleak Alto Plano in Bolivia, Cruz suffers little from the hypoxia that afflicts the expedition on the Plateau. He has been on several of Starkweather’s expeditions, but is less pleased to be on this one. He was married less than a year and a half ago, and left his wife and twin baby girls in Argentina. However, he knows that the money he makes on the expedition can help feed his family for years. Cruz has a deep yearning for justice, and honors whoever sides with the weak.
