Domingo "Ding" Chavez is a character in the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six franchise. He serves as the main protagonist in several installments under the callsign of Alpha-2 before eventually being promoted to the position of Six.
Domingo Chavez was born in Los Angeles, California on January 12, 1968. In 1983, he joined the US Army, serving in the 7th Infantry Division from 1984 to 1987 and rising to the rank of Staff Sergeant. In 1989, Chavez was recruited into the CIA and was tasked to undertake a secret anti-drug operation in Colombia. It was at the time that he met John Clark and started working under him. He later married Clark's daughter Patricia Clark and fathered a son, John Conor Chavez. In 1994 he and Clark rescued the former Japanese Prime Minister. In 1996, Chavez helped Clark implement "Plan Blue" which saw the recruitment of law enforcement officers as intelligence officers. This would lead to the formation of the multinational counter-terrorist organization Rainbow in 1998.
In their first major operation, Rainbow faces Phoenix Group/Horizon International, which plans on releasing an Ebola virus to remake the world in their image. Chavez leads the team in capturing CEO John Brightling.
Xander Theissan, a convicted terrorist, approaches Rainbow with information about weapon smuggling and wants a single operative to extract him. The powers that be choose Ding Chavez as his profile fits this case perfectly. Chavez frees Theissan and then storms the terrorist base.
Two years after the events of the original game, RAINBOW is again called into action, this time to hunt down and neutralize a "Rogue Spear", or a non-state entity possessing and distributing nuclear weaponry. Chavez leads Team 2 through multiple missions and eventually take down the leaders of the operation, Russian mob boss Maxim Kutkin and arms dealer Samed Vezirzade.
Shortly after the events of Rogue Spear, RAINBOW is again put to the test, when a mentally disturbed ex-SAS operative challenging the black-ops unit to reenactments of actual terrorist attacks, including the Japanese Embassy Siege. Chavez, along with the rest of the RAINBOW operatives, pass each test and ultimately neutralize the ex-SAS operative.
The year is 2005. In one of RAINBOW's best known operations, Chavez leads the investigation of a series of attacks committed against South American oil sources and European financial districts. RAINBOW eventually traces the attacks to Argentinian billionaire, Nikola Gospic. Sixty years earlier, Gospic was a Nazi official in Croatia, who escaped with huge amounts of Holocaust loot before Allied troops could move into the capital. Now Gospic is dying of cancer of the liver, and plans to leave one last legacy of hate for the world by resurrecting the international Fascist movement. To do this, Gospic, through his vast financial wealth, has acquired VX Nerve and Blister gas, which he intends to distribute throughout South America through his ownership of a meat packing plant. However, RAINBOW catches wind of this plan, and leads a raid against the plant, effectively stopping the plan.
In 2008, Rainbow becomes embroiled in a plot by Russian oil monarchs to create a new country in the Caucusus. Chavez is ordered to single-handedly assault their military base and stop the warhead launch.
In 2010, Clark steps down and assigns Chavez as the new Six. As he cleans out his office, he reminisces about previous Rainbow assignments.
In July 2010, Chavez briefs the Rainbow operational teams during the hunt for Irena Morales, which spills into a terrorist attack in Las Vegas. Eventually, Bishop is wounded uncovering proof that Nowak is behind the attack. Chavez grounds the team, although they disobey orders and confront Nowak in Costa Rica, and Bishop neutralizes him. In response, Chavez pulls Bishop from the Academy and appoints him/her as deputy Rainbow director.
"The End Begins"Edit
In an alternate timeline, Chavez was still Rainbow's director in 2019. However, on March 4, he received orders from the European Federation that they were withdrawing support from NATO. He ordered Logan Keller's Team One, which was in Pakistan, to terminate their operation and return home. Keller disobeyed the order and stopped Takfir's weapon trucks, following the example of Chavez in Africa.
- He earned a B.S. in Political Science at George Mason University in 1995. In 1998, he earned a M.A. in International Relations from the same institution.
- He is fluent in English, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Farsi.
- Chavez is an excellent light infantry soldier with an exceptional grasp of small unit tactics and close quarters battle. Although small in stature he is powerfully built and agile, a formidable opponent with a wide range of weapons and in hand-to-hand combat.
- Domingo is known to possess at least 3 Intelligence Stars; one issued in 1994 after a successful operation in East Africa, one issued for John Clark and Domingo during the Japanese conflict, as well as one for his ongoing operations carried out in 1996.
- In 2011's Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard, James Danko is the acting Six in 2012, although the game is only a remake of the original.
