|“||You're doing well. Your brother would have shot himself by now.||„|
|~ Harrison Love, to Alejandro, during their climatic duel|
Harrison Love is the secondary antagonist of The Mask of Zorro.
He is a sadistic English captain who serves as Don Rafael Montero's right-hand. He is the archnemesis of Alejandro Murietta.
Harrison Love was an English captain and the right-hand man of the cruel Don Rafael Montero, as well as the commander of his army. He was the main enemy of Alejandro Murietta, as he had killed his outlaw brother. Captain Love was a sadistic, ruthless and sick man, as he drank from pots in which the body parts of his killed enemies were kept (like Alejandro's brother). And yet, in spite of his madness and sadism, he also can have a very charming and even noble demeanor at times. For instance, when taking down Alejandro's brother, he says to him, "I want you to know I consider this an honor." Later, during a meeting with the Dons, Captain Love makes the observation that "I've always found heroism is something to aspire to, not sneer at."
Captain Love killed Alejandro's brother and took his head for his "drink". After this, he joined Don Rafael as the don arrived in California. Together they planned to buy California on the gold mined from its own land in their gold mine. However, Alejandro, seeking revenge, met Zorro, Diego de la Vega, whose main enemy was Don Rafael, as the don had stole his daughter, Elena when she was a baby. Diego trained Alejandro to be his replacement, and together they planned to have revenge on Love and Montero, and to find out what their evil plan was.
When the two Zorros, after many weeks of training and spying, discovered the gold mine, Love told Montero that, as they already had mined all the gold to buy California, they shall need to blow up the mine with the miners, as the mine and the workers would be evidence that they had bought California on it's own gold. So Love and Montero prepared to blow up the mine with many barrels of gunpowder, but suddenly the two Zorros appeared and attacked the evil pair. Love fought with Alejandro, but his enemy eventually overcame him, revealed his identity, and finally impaled Love with his sword. As the dying captain fell to the ground, the huge cart of gold, pushed down from a higher level of the mine by Diego, fell over the higher level's edge and onto a screaming Love, crushing and gruesomely killing the evil captain.
- Though Don Rafael Montero was the main antagonist of the film, Harrison Love served as Alejandro Murietta's nemesis.
