Ignacio was a slave aboard the Black Rock, a ship owned by Magnus Hanso.
6×09 – Ab Aeterno
In 1867 while chained inside the ship, he met and befriended Ricardo, a fellow slave. When the ship was hit by a storm, Ignacio saw land nearby, an Island, and as the ship came closer, he saw an enormous statue and screamed that it was the Devil.
The water dragged the ship inside the Island, far from the shore, but Ignacio, along his fellow slaves, survived the shipwreck. However, Ignacio was killed by Jonas Whitfield, one of the ship’s officers, who feared the slaves would kill the crew if they were released, as the survivors did not have any fresh water and very little supplies.

The casting call described him as: “[IGNACIO] Latino, 30s, fluent in Spanish. Poor, religious and street smart. On the wrong side of the law but only because he’s a victim of his circumstances… NICE CO-STAR.”

Key Episode(s) to Decoding the Character
In Egyptian mythology, Astennu (also spelt Asten, Isten, Astes, and Isdes) refers to a baboon associated with Thoth. It was also stated that Astennu was merely another aspect of Thoth, as the god could take the form of a baboon. He was one of four baboons who stood around the lake of fire at the place of judgement in Duat, and consequently associated with Utennu.
He appears in spell 17 of the Book of the Dead. The name Astennu means the moon.
Baboon may be an equivalent term for dog-headed ape. Among the Egyptians several kinds of apes were regarded as sacred animals, but the most revered of all was that which was the companion of Thoth, and which is commonly known as the Dog-headed Ape. This animal seems to have been brought in old, as in modern, times from the country far to the south of Nubia, but whether this be so or not it is certain that the Cynocephalus ape found its way into Egyptian mythology at a very early period. In the Judgment Scene he sits upon the standard of the Great Scales, and his duty was to report to his associate Thoth when the pointer marked the middle of the beam.
