Without a doubt, Valeria has broken the internet since her debut in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II’s campaign.

In Modern Warfare II, Valeria Garza initially poses as El Sin Nombre (meaning the nameless one in Spanish), while being a leader of a drug cartel known as Las Almas. However, when she’s captured by Soap and Alejandro, it’s revealed that she was actually a former member of the Mexican Special Forces.

Not only that, Valeria even served alongside Alejandro himself, as he tells about their past experience during the interrogation in ‘Deal With the Devil’ sequence of Call of Duty Modern Warfare II. She had conducted a coup during the escort mission of the previous Las Almas leader. After assassinating him, she became the new boss and the drug lady.
