Antonio has not exactly racked up a list of achievements on the battlefield, but he instead found his true calling on the training grounds and has earned a solid reputation as an instructor. Though he never technically expected to be assigned to the field, Antonio was enraged when he was nearly discharged from the Gallian Army out of suspicion after Gusurg switched sides. He resolved to live long enough to get retribution, and decided that he would live or die with Nameless.
After Nameless was disbanded, Carisa introduced Antonio to a weapons merchant in a foreign nation, with whom Antonio got a steady job as a product inspector. As a side note, there is a man named Calvaro Rodriguez who trained Squad 7 from the first game, then went on to work as the drill instructor at the prestigious Lanseal Royal Military Academy. Though Calvaro and Antonio are rumored to look similar in appearance and obviously share the same last name, it is unclear whether or not the two are actually related.
