- "Garcia's disturbing lack of empathy and conscience make him a perfect candidate for wet-work assignments. He has been variously described by his squad-mates as "cold", "remorseless", and a "natural-born assassin". It is our assessment that his emotional peculiarities do not make him reliable candidate for subversion."

Mendo Garcia is an operator for the Warsaw Pact faction featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. He is playable in Multiplayer and Zombies modes within Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, as well as in Call of Duty: Warzone upon purchase of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Born in 1942, Mendo Garcia grew up on the streets as an orphaned child. He learned how to fight with a knife and other survival skills by necessity. As a teenager, Garcia was part of a street gang. Following the defeat of Fulgencio Batista forces against Fidel Castro's armed guerillas during Operation Verano in 1958, Garcia's gang aligned itself with the pro-revolutionaries.
Following the takeover by Castro, Garcia was rapidly noticed by the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution for putting down enemies of the revolution with "effectiveness and enthusiasm". After several years, Garcia caught the attention of the Dirección General de Inteligencia and was formally recruited in 1964 where he received specialist training in close quarters knife fighting based on the Escrima martial art.
