Armando and his constant companion [[Henrique Bardas]], are two of [[Luis Fernando Lopez|Luis']] oldest friends. The trio are said to have grown up together, gone to school together, and got in a lot of trouble together. While Luis has left [[Northwood]] for the success he found working with [[Anthony Prince|Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince]], Armando and Henrique have remained in the barrio where they are still often found hustling on the streets of Northwood. With Luis not around as often, the trio has become a duo in which Armando fills the role of brains to Henrique's muscle. Armando can be seen to be slightly resentful of Luis' decision to work in nightclub business, feeling as if Luis has abandoned his origins and is trying to be something he's not.

While Luis has left Northwood for the success he found working with Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince, Armando and Henrique have remained in the barrio where they are still often found hustling on the streets of Northwood.
