Don Caballero was a swashbuckler in California during the latter days of the Spanish Empire.

Don Caballero moved to southern California from his native Spain in the early years of the 19th Century and established an estate in the small community of Hawk Hill. His true name unknown, Don Caballero used his expert fencing skills to thwart local felons and desert pirates like the Jackal, and even supernatural threats like the ghost of El Feugo, becoming Hawk Hill's greatest hero in the process.

Over the years, Don Caballero came to instruct others in Hawk Hill, teaching them the fine art of fencing. Caballero used his own blade, the legendary El Capitan, and his own physical prowess and martial skills to defend his southern California home well into his senior years, although his finale fate has yet to be recorded.
