Spanish bullfighter and Shadaloo assassin.
Vega was born the son of a wealthy, but unattractive father, and a beautiful mother from a lower-class family. As he got older, Vega studied bullfighting, a cultural tradition. Afterward, he went to Japan and learned ninjutsu, a style he believed worked well with his natural grace and agility. Combining bullfighting with ninjutsu, Vega went into an underground cage fighting circuit, and quickly became one of the best. Vega witnessed his mother 's murder at the hands of his own father, who felt that she did not respect him, and Vega killed him out of vengeance. This traumatized him, and he developed a dual personality: honorable bullfighter by day, sadistic murderer by night. His fighting abilities and sadistic nature earned Vega a spot amongst one of M. Bison's enforcers in the crime syndicate Shadaloo. He was responsible for overlooking Shadaloo's assassination missions.
In battle, Vega makes use of a three-bladed claw as his weapon of choice in assassination missions. Because of his narcissism for his beautiful appearance, Vega wears a mask in battle to protect his face from taking any damage. He also takes great joy in killing anyone whom he considers to have an ugly appearance.
