El Macho was an enemy turned ally. A member of Carlos’ old gang, who, along with his boss, helped the Heroes of So Fall during the Red Cog Attack.
Shortly after “The Incident”, the Masked Beetle retired from the Gang, and opened up his own gym, to teach others the way of the Lucha. However, years later one of his best students fell to the Heel side of the Lucha and left the city. Bound by duty and a feeling that he had somehow failed his student, El Macho chased after him. Following the destruction and disgrace his former pupil left in his wake.
