Dario assists Franz Sanchez when he travels to collect his mistress Lupe Lamora in the pre-title sequence. Found in bed with another man, Sanchez asks Lupe if the man promised her his heart, at which he tells Dario to give her his heart. While Sanchez then whips Lupe, the man's screams are heard off-screen.
On the evening of Felix Leiter's wedding, Sanchez breaks into his house and after beating up Felix, Dario kills Felix's wife, Della. Felix is then taken to Milton Krest's marine research company where he is gruesomely fed to a shark while Dario eagerly watches.
Near the end of the film, Bond is exposed when Dario spots him when he visits Sanchez's drugs processing plant. Hanging on by mere threads of rope above a nasty slicing and dicing machine, Dario slowly cuts through Bonds rope binding his hands. Interrupted by the 'ghostly' figure of Pam Bouvier, Dario is shot by Pam, and sent down the conveyor straight into the vicious machine meant for Bond.
After being expelled by the Nicaraguan Contras for being too violent, Dario is now in the employment of Sanchez where he uses his trusty knife to perform some brutal attacks. Sinister and menacing, Dario is an intimidating character with an evil grin as well as a murderous personality. §
