Previously the lowest-ranked member of the Cyclops Team prior to Bernard Wiseman joining, Garcia is hotheaded and irascible, though nonetheless a skilled soldier. He makes no effort to hide his irritation at having to put up with those he feels drags them down, and was the first to suggest killing Alfred Izuruha, an 11-year-old boy, in order to maintain their cover. Garcia is not without empathy however, and asks Bernie not to die during their mission, though he rationalizes this by telling him he'd prefer to have someone lower ranked than him on the team.
He was the junior member of the Cyclops Team up until the arrival of Bernard "Bernie" Wiseman, whom Garcia eagerly takes to bullying. He and the rest of the Cyclops Team are sent on a mission to find and either capture or destroy the Earth Federation's top secret weapon, the RX-78NT-1 Gundam "Alex". Thanks to the help of Alfred Izuruha, Bernie is able to locate it, but Garcia punches him for taking such a stupid risk. The Cyclops Team later formulates a plan where Garcia, Bernie, and Steiner Hardy infiltrate the Libot base disguised as Earth Federation soldiers while Mikhail Kaminsky diverts the attention of the rest of the base with his MS-18E Kämpfer. Before they undertake this risky mission, Garcia tells Bernie not to get killed because otherwise he (Garcia) won't have anybody to order around. Unfortunately, the mission goes awry when the soldiers catch on to their subterfuge, and a gunfight ensues. Garcia attempts to blow up the Gundam Alex, but is fatally wounded in the process; with his last ounce of strength, he detonates the explosives, killing himself.
