Origins:
 
Born to a poor worker's family in Buenos Aires, Sebastianís brother was slain by the military during the Cordoba Coup. During the cleansing of Argentine society, his parents were also taken in the night and disappeared. Sebastian didn't want to follow in his radical parents' footsteps. In fact, he rejected their values and politics because he hated the lower classes and wanted out of them himself. He was a good businessman and ended up forging an alliance with the dictator who had his family killed. He soon escaped poverty and became one of the rich.
Sebastian eventually realised that he lacked real power. He learned that a woman had secured the power of a plant god, the Cheetah. He bargained with the god and managed to persuade him to take him as Urzkartaga's avatar. Urzkartaga believed that his current host Barbara Minerva was too weak and that Ballesteros would make a stronger conduit.
