Biography[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

He was later transferred to Tycho Station under guard where it was learned he had his empathy surgically overridden, bypassed and disabled.

Throughout the series[edit | edit source]

In "Doors & Corners", Cortázar is caught on Thoth Station and taken into protective custody.

In "Static", Cortázar is questioned and after he is decidedly uncooperative, he is determined by the Tycho Station doctor to be surgically altered using the transcranial magnetic hyperstimulation for empathy inhibition.

In "Home", Cortázar is questioned by Fred Johnson when Eros starts moving and he is asked if Eros could be stopped.

In "Paradigm Shift", Cortázar is shown to be still receiving data from protomolecule even after the destruction of Eros.

In "The Seventh Man", Amos relates to Cortázar the feelings that were triggered when he encountered a young refugee boy defending his mother and he mentions his relationship with Lydia in Baltimore. Cortázar offers to perform the empathy inhibiting procedure for Amos.

Later on, Cortázar is abducted from Tycho in an operation organized by Anderson Dawes that employed Diogo as a decoy.
