Mario Galeana is a main character in A Long Road to Fortune.
A victim of an unknown tragedy during his childhood, Mario's been proportioned with a great deal of rage in its aftermath. Thanks to this, Mario's fists do the talking for the vast majority of each situation he finds himself in. In an attempt to deal with these violent tendencies, Mario has looked for comfort in smoking from his young teens but ultimately found a calling for music down the line. Despite the effort he put into giving up this violent life once more, Mario finds himself back in a brawl again before he can think about it. Eventually, all of this brawling caught on to Mario, landing him in jail months before the apocalypse.
Mario grew up in Acapulco but visited Tecpan with great frequency during his youth. He was always troubled and caused trouble, picking fights in school and often being expelled. Mario's family, the Galeanas, was full of successful individuals like his aunt Alicia Galeana, a spinal surgeon. In his later years, Mario moved to Tecpan in an attempt to calm his raging desire, but failed to do so when he began picking fights in local bars. He was also an aspiring musician.
Mario took refuge in the marketplace along with his aunt Sofia and his twin cousins Manny and Alicia. He swore to Mr. Galeana that he would protect his family after his death. When Sofia was killed by zombies and later reanimated, Mario was very depressed and angry, which led him to beat and pummel Ashton after he put Sofia down.
Mario is very impulsive, impatient, and prone to violence. His rage and obsessiveness is responsible for his misery. Mario does have a soft spot for his twin cousins Manny and Alicia, a bond that strengthens their bond further. He only listens to reason when he is calm.
