Octavio de la Paz is a soldier and saboteur for the Gran Colombian Empire. After retrieving the malware from Felix, he killed Felix and plugged the flashdrive into a computer at a coffee shop to set off the cyber attack against the United States. He is also Kelsi's lover. He led the attack on the United States Southern Command along with other GCE loyalists disguised as paramedics. He successfully broke the POTUS into a mock confession. He was determined to force Tom Chandler to surrender in exchange for President Reiss's life and the lives of everyone who was still alive at the USSC. When his plot failed, he attempted to kill the president, and resulted in killing Joseph Meylan instead. He was determined to set off the semtex to the roof of the USSC, until he was gunned down by Mike Slattery.
