Cesar is shown to be protective of Aleida and Dayanara and is not afraid to threaten others for their safety. He buys nice presents for Aleida's children although they are wary of him and seem to recognize that he is a criminal. He has a lot of children under his care, both Aleida's and his own (from other women) and takes care of them, although his parenting techniques may seem questionable, such as when he pulled a gun on one of the children for not wanting to eat soggy fries that were microwaved ("Bed Bugs and Beyond").
He is a bit of jokester although he can quickly become deadly and serious when his reputation is threatened. Although he is a minor character, his character is quite complex; he clearly cares about his family and likes children although he can be violent, and cares about Daya and Aleida despite having them sent to jail for him.
Physical Appearance Edit
He is a Hispanic male, who is tall in stature and has a lean muscular body. He is bald and he sports a dark-haired goatee. His eye color is green.
Cesar is a drug dealer who is also Aleida's boyfriend. He treats her well, and buys presents for her other children. Aleida allows him to run a drug lab from her apartment and after she is imprisoned, he begins a sexual relationship with her daughter, Daya.
He has apparently killed multiple people in various ways, including with his bare hands and with a hunting knife.
Cesar was first seen in the flashbacks of "The Chickening" where he was in Aleida's apartment, supervising his drug lab. He is friendly to Daya when she is trying to cook for her siblings, which sparks Aleida's jealousy.
Cesar gives Daya money to go shopping to send her out, which doesn't appease Aleida. He accepts Daya's sexual advances when Aleida is sent to prison.
He visits Aleida in prison, who is still upset over his involvement with Daya. Cesar tells her to not act like "una celosa perra (a jealous bitch)" and assures her that she is the one he wants ("WAC Pack").
Off screen, Aleida tells him of Daya's pregnancy and he goes to Bennett's apartment to check him out. He introduces himself as a friend of the Diaz family and criticizes Bennett's apartment for not being big enough for a baby. He warns Bennett to not run away from his responsibilities and when he notices Bennett's prosthetic leg, he asks, "Does Daya know you're a robot?"
Cesar is not seen or heard from very much in Season Two.
In "Bed Bugs and Beyond", Bennett visits Cesar's apartment to deliver a present for Lucy and to give him the news that Bennett and Daya are newly engaged. Cesar invites him in and tells him that he's staying for dinner. Aleida's other children are all present, along with a woman, Margarita, holding a baby. Bennett asks who Margarita is; Cesar admits that Margarita is his girlfriend who has recently given birth to his daughter, and threatens Bennett against telling Aleida and Daya about her. Eva accidentally breaks one of her toys and Cesar yells at her. The children all seem very withdrawn. ("Bed Bugs and Beyond")
When Margarita presents dinner, it is reheated takeout-leftovers and Emiliano refuses to eat the fries. Cesar reacts by pulling a gun on him, calling it "behavioral consequences", horrifying Bennett. He later gifts Bennett the baby's crib, explaining it was Daya's and the other children, and he wants it to be used for Daya's baby.
After Bennett runs away, Cesar breaks into his apartment to try and find him for Daya. He visits Daya in prison and, when Daya starts blaming herself for Bennett's disappearance, Cesar gives her a speech about how a real man never leaves a pregnant woman, no matter what the situation is. He vehemently assures her that Bennett leaving is on him, not on Daya, and displays genuine concern and affection for her. He "reassures" her that the next time he sees Bennett, he will "rape him with a broken bottle and then shoot him in his stomach so he bleeds slow" ("Fake It Till You Fake It Some More").
In the season finale he is arrested and all the children, including Daya's baby, are taken from him. His first concern is the children rather than himself, as while he is being pinned to the ground he shouts at Christina to take care of Daya's baby ("Trust No Bitch").
Daya is upset that Cesar has been arrested because it means her daughter has now been placed in foster care. Aleida assures her that Cesar's lawyer will keep him out of prison, but he ends up being sent away for a long time.
When Aleida is released from Litchfield, Cesar's new girlfriend is the only one who can pick her up.
