Enrique Velacruz, also known as Matador or Noddy, is a member of the Spanish Marines (the Unidad de Operaciones Especiales).
Before Seven Ancient WondersEdit
Through unknown circumstances, Enrique Velacruz joined the Spanish equivalent of the Marines, the Unidad de Operaciones Especiales. During his time there, he became a specialist in in demolitions, and gained the call-sign Matador.
In 1996, Matador was among Spain's representatives in a meeting of small nations to discuss uniting to restore the Golden Capstone. For Spains's representation in the mission, he was assigned to help guard Lily until she was old enough to begin translating the clues leading to the ancient Capstone.
At the team's base in Kenya, Matador would work out in the barn, and on occassion would allow Lily to sit on a plank that he bench-pressed. Over time, he accepted her nickname for him, Noddy.
When the team went to the Sudan to retrieve the first Piece of the Capstone, Noddy remained up top while the rest of the team went into the mine, to keep an eye out for hostile forces. He radioed in to Jack West Jr. to let him know that the American's team, led by the CIEF, were inbound to their location.
Soon after the Warbleers were activated, Noddy attempted to contact the others to let the know the Americans were closing in, but the interferrence prevented him from doing so until they were nearly back out. When Jack emerged, Noddy urged them to hurry, only to be shot in the head by a sniper.
After the rest of the team managed to escape, Wizard called the Spanish attache to inform him of Noddy's death, and his death upset Lily.
