How about your payment is you get to live?
~ Hector's offer to Mike Ehrmantraut.
Hector Salamanca: The boss can suck me.
Juan Bolsa: I'd watch what'd I say if I were you.

~ Hector to Juan Bolsa, his last spoken words before his crippling stroke.

Don Hector "Tio" Salamanca is one of the two overarching antagonists (alongside Don Eladio) of Breaking Bad and the secondary antagonist of its prequel series Better Call Saul.

In Breaking Bad, he served as a supporting antagonist in Seasons 2 and 3, a major character in Season 4 and a posthumous antagonist in Season 5. In Better Call Saul, he served as one of the two main antagonists (alongside Charles McGill) of Seasons 2 and 3, a supporting antagonist in Season 4 and the ongoing Season 6, and a minor antagonist in Season 5.

He is a ruthless drug kingpin, the former right-hand man and enforcer of Don Eladio, and the arch-enemy of Gustavo Fring. Hector groomed his many nephews as his successors. In 2003, he is rendered paralyzed and unable to speak following a stroke caused by empty pills sneakily given to him by Nacho Varga. In 2009, he dies in a suicide attack to kill Gus as revenge for wiping out the Salamanca family.

He was portrayed by Mark Margolis, who also played Alberto the Shadow in Scarface, Felix Faust in Constantine and Antonio Nappa in Oz.

Character Overview

He is identified by the DEA as Hector Salamanca of the Juarez Cartel. but they think he hasn't been a major player in the business for years.

He is paralyzed and unable to speak as a result of a stroke (portrayed in Better Call Saul), and uses a brass service bell taped onto his wheelchair armrest to communicate. Generally, one bell means "yes", zero bells means "no", but sometimes Hector is able to get his message across with a flurry of bell rings and the expression on his face. It is apparent, based on his facial tics, that he has tardive dyskinesia, which can be a result of heavy or prolonged antipsychotic use (sometimes used as a sedative); he has not yet developed this condition by the time he is introduced in Season 2.

A flashback revealed that he was working for cartel patriarch Don Eladio at the time Gus Fring made an overture toward the cartel. At the time, he disparaged Gus as "the Chicken Man" and a "dirty South American." He executed Gus' business partner (and implied lover) Max right in front of him, igniting a decades-long feud between the two men. After Hector's paralysis, Gus regularly visits his nursing home to taunt him with news of his progress in eliminating the cartel.

Known Victims

  1. Max Arciniega - Shot in the head on Don Eladio's orders.
  2. Unnamed Good Samaritan - Shot in the face off-screen, mentioned.
  3. Ximenez Lecerda - Shot by The Cousins on Hector’s orders.
  4. Unnamed Hotel Owner - Tortured and burned alive off-screen, mentioned.
  5. Gus Fring - Blown up with a pipe bomb to avenge the death of his family and friends.
  6. Tyrus Kitt - Blown up along with Gus.

Trivia

  • He was originally supposed to be the main antagonist of Breaking Bad's third season.
    • He eventually becomes one of the two main antagonists for Better Call Saul's second and third seasons.
  • Hector and Lalo are the only Salamancas to be referred to as Dons, implying they're the highest-ranked Salamancas in the Cartel by 2004.
