|~ Carlos receiving his money from Greene.|
He was portrayed by Fernando Guillen Cuervo.
Colonel Carlos started off as the contact of French agent Rene Mathis when James Bond went over to La Paz to investigate Greene's intent of securing a portion of Bolivian land for Quantum. He also met Bond and MI6 agent Strawberry Fields during the Greene Planet Fundraiser Party, right before Bond escapes while Fields was killed by Greene's thugs.
Eventually, Carlos revealed his true colors by murdering Mathis and implanting his body inside Bond's car in order to frame Bond for the murder and have him arrested by the police. However, Bond escapes again after killing two of Carlos' policemen, much to Carlos' anger. Carlos then decides to send out the Marchetti Pilot to take down both Bond and Montes in their plane, though they managed to evade after killing the pilot.
Assuming that both Bond and Montes are dead, Carlos met with exiled Bolivian general Luiz Medrano at the Eco Hotel in Bolivia's Atacama Desert, as it turns out that Carlos is in cahoots in helping Medrano overthrow the Bolivian government as part of Greene's plan. Carlos receives his share of the money (through euros) from Elvis for his efforts, but before he leaves in his car, Bond jumps on the departing car and shouts "You and I had a mutual friend!" before shooting him and the driver in the heads in revenge for Mathis' death. Carlos and the driver's bodies were destroyed when the car explodes after reversing into a fuel tank.
Eventually, Bond soon learned that Quantum was just a front run by Ernst Stavro Blofeld of SPECTRE, and that Carlos, along with Greene and Medrano, were all pawns as part of Blofeld's plot to wreak psychological pain on Bond.
