"But let me say this to the Communists who are murdering our brave young fruits, and to the puppetmasters in Moscow and the capital of China: You cannot kill the spirit of San Marcos!"
—Gustavo Calderon[src]

Gustavo Calderon was the president of San Marcos when a civil war broke out. To fund the war, he arranged a drug deal with the CIA, which the former members of ISIS were duped into becoming a part of. However, the war left him clinging to power. He was eventually overthrown by Cyril Figgis and ended up in prison for three weeks. He escaped from prison, only to be mauled to death by a tiger.


Before the SeriesEdit

At one point, Gustavo Calderon became the President of San Marcos. He married Juliana Calderon (his father's second wife); however, they were never truly in love.

At some point, a civil war broke out. The war drastically affected Calderon's influence, leaving him clinging to power. To that end, Calderon arranged a trade for the CIA; Calderon would offer his country's cocaine supply to the United States, who would in turn provide him with weapons and armaments to allow his soldiers to continue to fight the Communist rebels threatening his presidential power.

Calderon discovered rising country music star Charlene and instantly fell in love with her. He bought one million of her albums, boosting it to Platinum status.[1]

Season 5Edit

"White Elephant"Edit

"Archer Vice: On the Carpet"Edit

"Archer Vice: Palace Intrigue, Part I"Edit

"Archer Vice: Palace Intrigue, Part II"Edit

"Archer Vice: Filibuster"Edit


To the public, Calderon tried to appear very caring of his people, even going to the hospital to comfort a comrade who died. This however was a mere facade, as his palace was filled with an uncanny amount of priceless art and historical artifacts, all of which were paid for using his country's national funding. He did however attempt to improve his people's lives by purchasing Cherlene's records for them, though it was useless to distribute records to a populace without record players.

He also seems to have great knowledge of United States Presidents, citing that William Howard Taft was both President and Supreme Court Justice, and that George Washington could have run for a third term if he had wanted to. He has a love for Charlene's music, as he bought a million copies of her album, which boosted it to Platinum status, and even forced his soldiers to unload all of her CDs.


Appearances for Gustavo Calderon
In chronological order:


  • The name Calderon could be a reference to the Calderone Drug Cartel and it's leader Esteban (and later Orlando) Calderone from the series Miami Vice, which serves as the inspiration for Archer Vice.
  • Calderon's nickname "Baby Gus" is likely a reference to former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier.
