Origins:
 
Hector Santiago Ruiz was the only son of poor immigrants from the Dominican Republic. He joined the local street gang in New York City, but eventually struck out on his own, becoming an armed robber and a drug addict.
Hector was in and out of institutions until finally committing an adult charge of assault, and was sent to prison. There he began seeing visitors from a street mission, the Spiritual Light Society, an offshoot of the racist Dragon Circle organisation. He became a model prisoner and was eventually paroled into the SLS's custody, at which point he was lost to further follow-up.
The Dragon Circle somehow acquired the technology of Wakandan design used in the Falcon's costume and created a similar costume for Ruiz, who became their agent and enforcer, Windeagle.
