La Plaga (The Plague), real name Ignacio Perez Cervantes, is the nickname of a youthful member of the Santa Blanca Drug Cartel who happens to be their leading sicario.

La Plaga is the kid brother of the cartels head of security El Muro, who is responsible for his current position.

His brother arranged for him to have training in interrogation techniques from various death squads in Latin and Central America, as well as combat training from Bodark, the Russian equivalent to the Ghosts.

An unashamed hedonist who loves violence, he's achieved some social media celebrity by projecting an image of narco-glamour. La Plaga usually posts selfies of himself in flashy outfits or partying with supermodels, but on occasion, he'll post a video of himself torturing and beheading an enemy of the cartel.

Once 2 security buchons had been defeated, El Sueño orders El Muro to kill his younger brother as to atone for his mistakes. Unbeknownst to Sueño, Muro planned to flee the country with Plaga, as to save his brother and escape his boss's wrath. The Ghosts track Plaga down to his hacienda in La Cruz, where he is surrounded by sicarios, hiding in a secret tunnel below his house. Once the Ghosts kill the cartel members protecting him, Plaga attempts to escape by getting onto a motorcycle, but is killed by the Ghosts before he can get away.

La Plaga's death provokes El Muro to clash with Sueño, breaking the trust between them.
