Diego Jimenez is a supporting antagonist/Bigger Bad in season 4 of the Starz series Power. He is one of the two bosses of the Jimenez Cartel along with his sister Alicia Jimenez. He is also the boss of Toros Locos leader Uriel.
He is portrayed by Maurice Compte.
Diego and his cartel were the competition and enemies of the Mexican drug kingpin Felipe Lobos and have attempted assassinations on the drug lord.
Season 4 Edit
Sometime after drug dealers James St. Patrick and Tommy Egan kill Lobos, Diego and his sister make their first appearance when the wife of one of his distributors starts cooperating with law enforcement. They arrive at his house while he is snorting the drug, bringing his wife and daughter. As punishment, they force him to snort the cocaine on threat of killing his family, causing him to overdose and die. Diego then kills his wife and Alicia takes his daughter.
They later meet with drug dealer and nightclub assistant manager Dre Coleman who offers to work for them by mentioning that he can help them with his hotel business where they can do anything.
Season 5 Edit
Diego and his sister are soon recognised by Angela's task force as head of their drug business. At the airport, Diego and his sister talk with Dre and Cristobal before they leave. However, the authorities arrive (on a tip by Arturo Magdeleno) and take them into custody.
Fortunately, Diego and his sister are released from custody due to the perceived negative economic and social ramifications should their operation suddenly collapse.
Diego meets his end at the hands of Kanan Stark. He was shot and beheaded and his head was disposed of at the hotel Dre works. This strained the business relationship between Dre and Karen Basset.
