El Dragón Criollo
After La Muerte del Perro Negro, El Dragón Criollo was the only one who could take his place, but he didn’t. He said El Perro Negro was irreplaceable. Then he was lost for days, weeks and months, everybody thought he was dead, but he was not dead, he was celebraiting along side El General, a ritual for leaving the past behind.
They were going like muevelo muevelo, pum pum mami mami y no me trates de engañar. This period of absence of more than six months gave him the name of El Mata Culebras, name given to him by a Chola Caderona in Panama City the day he stopped the celebration for half a day to rescue her from the bad intentions of a cobra, that wanted to kill her.
He became known as one of the most incredible snake charmers around in the Caribbean and the Pacific coast dominating all cobras and other poisonous snakes making them his disciples. Even Arabs, Hindus and specially Persians knew him for his abilities in snake charming.
Many people by that time thought he had a pact with the devil, but after a few years nobody was saying that anymore. Instead they were saying he was the devil himself, El Diablo!
