DON PEDRO... STORY OF A DRUG LORD 3
El Capo is determined to end the business that gave him money and power in the past, so he writes with Terry, the OPACproject. The project has the goal of distributing drugs for free around the main cities of the world. Bruna and Tato, his faithful lieutenants who have been free for the last 3 years, start carrying out a plan to get el Capo out of jail, in which new allies come along: Pitre and Kyara. Kyara filters Asimov, the leader of the Russian mafia in New York, in order to obtain benefits for El Capo and OPAC; even though she is doing it for money, when she meets Leon Jaramillo, she will join his team for love. Kyara will become one more of El Capo´s women and even though she would like to be the only one, she will have to understand that El Capo will always love just one woman: Isabel Cristina. El Capo´s prison break involves Steven Brandon, Director of the DEA and Colonel Velandia, who agree to get Leon Jaramillo out of jail in order to help rescue Brandon´s kidnapped family. With El Capo on the streets of New York, OPAC begins and the machinery to find the drugs that will be given out is moved; this is how they will soon be facing Asimov and Bad Boy, Pacifico Blanco´s step son. However, not everything is a fight for El Capo because his freedom is his opportunity to see his family and conquer Bruna´s heart again, even though the later isn´t possible because she is in a relationship with Colonel Velandia. This is a relationship that doesn´t make Bruna happy because she still loves El Capo; however, she won´t be able to get him back because she will discover she is pregnant when she tries to. During the first stage of OPAC, El Capo captures the attention of the media and of his new enemy, Jacob Bauman, the leader of the “Great Invisible Hand”, a secret organization dedicated to laundering money from businesses such as drug trafficking, human trafficking and contraband. Jacob founded Eurostar Bank for this purpose but El Capo makes his business unstable with OPAC. During the second phase of OPAC, El Capo convinces Bad Boy to join his team; he accepts not only for conviction but also for the hope of conquering the woman he has always loved. With a strong team, El Capo decides to promote OPAC in other cities. The team is divided. Bad Boy, Terry and two former DEA agents, Richard and Uno travel to Mexico City looking for alliances for the OPAC; in the meantime, Leon Jaramillo, Tato, Kyara and Pitre travel to Bogota with the same goal. At this point, El Capo will be surprised when his daughter Julieta joins the OPAC and she will end up falling in love with Pitre. On the other hand, Jacob sends Silvio, his best man, to stop the OPAC in Mexico and Colombia, but El Capo receives him with a trap and kills him. In the final phase, El Capo begins his trip to Europe in a ship he has turned into a cocaine laboratory, but he will run into two FBI agents who have intercepted him to stop the OPAC. On the other hand, Jacob is able to find as Silvio´s successor, the former right hand of Colonel Velandia, Almeida, and who in order to fence El Capo, kidnaps his grandson. Julieta is determined to find her son and filters Jacob in the Vatican while her father arrives on the ship to help her out. In an apotheosis ending, El Capo meets face to face the most powerful criminal in the world. A confrontation where only one of them can survive, but the cards are on the table and Jacob has lost, not only money, but his credibility in society and is about to go to jail while Leon Jaramillo is protected by the DEA and has the chance of starting a new life with Isabel Cristina, Julieta and his grandson, with new identities and new dreams.

Spy for the mafia.
Kyara is dedicated to espionage and counter-espionage, depending on how they treat her and how much money they pay her. She is a beautiful woman, smart, fun and daring. She is never loyal to any side. She has been working with drug traffickers for several years and has never received good treatment. She is sure that she won´t grow to be old for which she takes as much advantage of her youth as she can. When she meets Pedro Pablo, she falls deeply in love with him.
Julieta is The Lords daughter, and National Ministry of Defense’s son wife. Her family’s past has always been hidden from all. She is a well bred, well educated intelligent woman with lots, lots of class. Educated in England and friend to European society, she was a good catch.
El Capo´s most trusted man. Since the beginning, he has shown his loyalty, integrity and courage to Pedro Pablo. He had a tough childhood, with an abusive father who beat him until he was unconscious and then he would lock him in a small and dark basement for long hours. This upbringing marked his character forever; Tato is capable of resisting the cruelest punishments and tortures; the only thing he can´t overcome: his terrible fear to confinement (claustrophobic).
Investigator of the National Security Direction, he´s a righteous man with principles. He will try to capture El Capo anyway he can, at first, on the government´s side, but later, after he loses his family in this fight, he will have to pursue him even if he must defy the orders of his chiefs
El Capo´s wife. She loves him deeply, she met El Capo when they were still kids and has stayed by his side for love. She´s naive and the love she feels for her husband keeps her from seeing the reality of things. However, she´s a woman with a strong character, willing to face anything for her family. She comes from a humble upbringing but had more amenities than El Capo did when he was a child.
She´s an attractive and dangerous woman, trained in the art of killing. She will become one of Pedro Pablo´s new women, starting an obvious rivalry with any other woman who fights for El Capo´s heart. She has no limits, she´s bold and she doesn´t know the meaning of the word fear.
He´s a 48 year old man, smart, astute, shrewd, cold and a total Don Juan. Capable of hating or loving with intensity, he doesn´t know a middle point. A very humble man, born in a low income family home. His father died when he was 16, so his mother raised him and his 9 brothers and sisters alone. He gets involved in crime trying to help his family live in better conditions. He starts by carrying out small thefts but as time passes by he gets involved in the drug trafficking business. His great intelligence allowed him to hide his true identity, keeping a low profile for many years, lying to his family who never really got to know the great wealth that El Capo was able to save.
“THE BAD BOY”
He handles the New York network and even though nobody knew he was Pacifico´s stepson, his family ties are revealed after his stepfather´s death. Pacifico was his master and mentor and got him involved with drug trafficking. He was always a rebel who wasn´t accountable to anybody, he only cared about the money; however, when he takes Pacifico´s place, he must become Asimov´s partner in order to destroy El Capo.
He is a cultured and educated man who seems charming and kind, but the truth is that he is a murdering, calculating and expert businessman. He is Jacob´s right hand for everything; he never refutes his boss´s orders. Silvio travels to every city to personally take care of Jacob´s business and tasks. Even though he travels for business, these trips are the opportunity he needs to find exotic men with whom he has fun for one night.
“The black bear”
Russian immigrant who arrived at the United States when he was 10 years old and inherited the mafia empire in New York from his father. He learned the art of torture, he is calculating and cold. He is the friend and partner of Bad Boy and split the territory with him, because they are both Jacob´s (the dark hand behind drug trafficking) clients. He will become Pedro Pablo Leon Jaramillo´s worst enemy because he is not willing to allow the OPAC project to work.
The shadow behind the mafias.
He is a Jewish tycoon who lives in Vatican City. He has great prestige and credibility because nobody knows that he legalizes the fortunes of drug traffickers and mafia members involved in all sorts of illicit businesses in the world. He is really the leader of the financial group “The Great Invisible Hand”. Jacob will do what he has never been forced to do in order to defend his empire: he will meet with the great drug lords to finish El Capo and his legalization project.
“Terry, the terrible”.
Fierce and loyal cellmate of Leon Jaramillo who is paying a sentence for working with the Mexican drug trafficking business. He is a former American army combatant, expert in handling weapons and planes. Terry knows the cartels and their tentacles at all levels because he worked for Jacob and ended up in jail because of him; he wants to get his revenge someday. He wrote the OPAC project with Pedro Pablo.
He is a smart and reserved man. He worked for the drug traffickers for many years, he had fun at parties, trips and risky missions, but none of that made him happy. He thinks that the drug trafficking war should be over so, interested in the OPAC project, he will join Leon Jaramillo´s group. When he meets Julieta, he falls in love with her and is willing to do anything to conquer her heart, even confronting El Capo and changing his life.
