View full history
Chico is a member of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), younger brother of resistance fighter Amanda, and son of the former commandante. After Big Boss' meeting with the FSLN at Bananal Fruta de Oro, Chico had an argument with Amanda and wandered off. After discovering the Chrysalis he was soon captured by it's kidnappers. He was then taken to a holding facility in Mount Irazu and tortured by La Cia (The C.I.A.). When Big Boss rescued him Chico claimed he had seen "el Basilisco", which is later revealed to be Peace Walker. After being rescued by Snake, and sent to Mother Base via fulton recovery, Chico attempts to leave behind his child demeanor stating "I'm not a kid, I'm twelve!". Snake receives valuable intel from Chico who is also excellent at Intelligence gathering. He also developes a crush on Paz during his time on Mother Base. After listening to Chico's tapes about legends of Giant Monsters on a nearby island, you can unlock the Monster Hunter side missions where Snake meets Trenya and fights the Rathalos, Tigrex and eventually Gear Rex. Although he is a unique staff member Chico has no special skills and he cannot be played as in missions if he's put into the Combat Unit.
Behind The Scenes
Kikuko Inoue provides the Japanese voice for new MGS character Chico. In addition to this new Peace Walker character, she has done the voices for Rosemary ( MGS2 and MGS4), The Boss ( MGS3) and Sunny. Her qualities as a voice actor in previous games are more than likely the reason for being cast in this role, rather than Chico being related to Rose, Boss or Sunny.
