Domingo "Ding" Chavez is a character that appears in several installments of 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, 1962. He grew up in a poor area of East Los Angeles where he joined a local gang called the Bandidos. In 1979, one of his close friends was killed in a drive by shooting. This event made Chavez realize that there was no future in a gang and prompted him to enlist in the military. After being rejected by the US Marine Corps, a US Army recruiter signed him up in order to meet his monthly quota, despite the fact that Chavez was near illiterate and had not yet earned a high school diploma.

Chavez was first stationed in South Korea to provide security at the DMZ. One night, North Korean infiltrators entered the DMZ and slit the throats of two men in Chavez's platoon. Their bodies were later discovered by Chavez the next morning. Chavez realized how serious his job was and became motivated to master it. He attempted to pay close attention to lectures and take notes but struggled due to his lack of a formal education. His platoon leader noticed this and helped him to earn his GED and a promotion to Specialist Fourth Class by the end of the year.

By 1984, Buck Sergeant Chavez was assigned to Bravo Company, 3rd Battalion of the 17th Infantry Regiment under the 7th Infantry Division near Monterey, California. Chavez was assigned to lead a squad of nine slick sleeves and was eventually promoted to Staff Sergeant. During operations, Chavez and his team became skilled in stealth, raids, infiltration, and intelligence gathering.

In 1988, Chavez received orders to become a drill sergeant with the Army's basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia. Before he could out-process however, a CIA agent named Edgar Jeffries arranged for a meeting with Chavez. Disguised as an Army Colonel, Jeffries recruited Chavez into the CIA's Special Activates Division with the promise of a promotion and a chance to repay his country for all the training it had poured into him. Chavez was placed on a black ops team, CAPER to undertake a secret a secret war against the Medellín Cartel in Colombia. During the operation, Chavez grew to look up to his squad leader, CIA Agent John Clark, who later became his mentor. Following CAPER's exposure, Chavez was rescued by Jack Ryan and Clark after the government abandoned them for political reasons. Chavez later married Clark's daughter Patricia Clark.

In 1991, National Security Advisor Elizabeth Elliot engineers a smear campaign against Jack Ryan, accusing him of having an affair and fathering a child. John Clark and Chavez convince Ryan's wife that the allegations are false. In 1994, Chavez 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 1999.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow SixEdit

With the formation of Rainbow, Chavez was given the simulated rank of Major in the organization with his new role as leader of Team 2. 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.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Lone WolfEdit

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.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue SpearEdit

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.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear: Black ThornEdit

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.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven ShieldEdit

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.

The same year, Chavez joins in an operation to free hostages in the Píc des Pyreneés. Lieutenant Monroe is killed and Gabriel Nowak is wounded.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Black ArrowEdit

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.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: LockdownEdit

The following year, Chavez leads Alpha Team in stopping the GLF in deploying the Legion virus. The team hunts down and eliminates Bastian Vanderwaal.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Critical HourEdit

In 2010, Clark steps down and assigns Chavez as the new Six. As he cleans out his office, he reminisces about previous Rainbow assignments.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: VegasEdit

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 1, 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.[1]
  • 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.


  • Due to the first game diverging from the Rainbow Six novel, the subsequent history of the video game version of Chavez differs substantially to his novel counterpart.
