Nidia Flores’s childhood was particularly traumatic and violent, shaping her character and pushing her to seek success for survival. Little by little, Nidia rose through the organizations with wit.
Extremely smart and analytical, Nidia managed to work her way to the highest positions of the Santa Blanca Cartel thanks to exceptional manipulation capacities. Her role in the cartel is to ensure the packaging and delivery of the final product, while at the same time laundering all income.
According to Narrative Designer Sam Strachman, “Nidia Flores has always been one of my favorite characters. She started out like a lot of beauty queens in Mexico and dated narcos, using that path as a way to study everything about drug trafficking. She’s this strong and powerful woman in a man’s world, and the way she operates in the game is through her intelligence, her ability to smuggle all this cocaine in all these crazy ways, and to get it to all these countries.”
