"I give you this one chance. Turn away or you will feel the strike of my whip and the bite of the blade of Zorro!"
- Diego to some bandits
Diego de la Vega is the head of the Vega estate in California, and he is the first man to wear the guise of Zorro. He fought as Zorro for many years, until he was convinced to give the cape and cowl to his only son, Alejandro. A trip to Japan reunites him with a friend he met long ago, and his adventures still continue.
