Description: He is a tall, regal-looking man with pale skin and elegant black mustache. His noble heritage is apparent in the manner he carries himself. He wears the uniform of a Mexican general though it is often wrinkled and dusty from leading troops out in the field. It is impossible to ignore his aura of command and presence that surrounds him.
Santa Anna, whose full name is Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna Perez de Lebron, is a legendary figure in Mexico, suddenly brought out of mothballs by French Emperor Maximillian for one final tilt at the gringos. He fought the Spaniards, became President of Mexico in 1833, and fought the Texan rebels in 1836. It was he that took the Alamo.
Unfortunately for him, the tide turned against him, and the Texans handed him a major defeat in 1838. He ruled as a hero for a while, but after losing the battle of Veracruz to the French in 1848, he was deposed and exiled. The American government brought him back to power once, but he betrayed them and was bounced again. Maximillian’s arrangement is the second resurrection for this dangerous old penny. From all reports, he’s determined to win this time.
He has been growing an army just south of the border near the town of Mexicali. Most folks in The Great Maze worry that his forces someday march northward. His army along with the Mexican armada, would be more than enough to defeat any other single army in the Commonwealth of California.
