In Granado Espada, Panfilo de Narvaez is the simple cook who uses the unique Flame Guard stance and the Protector of the Cows. But in reality, he is much more than that...


Pánfilo de Narváez (1478 – 1528) was a Spanish conqueror and soldier in the Americas. He helped in the conquest of Cuba in 1511. He is most remembered as the leader of two expeditions, one to Mexico and another to Florida.

In 1520, he was sent by Diego Velasquez to lead an expedition to Mexico with 1,100 men to oppose Cortés, who was charged with treason. However, Cortés overcame Narváez, despite his numerical inferiority, and convinced the rest of Narvaez's men to join him.

In his expedition to Florida in 1527, the failure to find gold and the hostility of the native Apalachee Indians led to the decision to rejoin the ships and continue to Mexico. However, the vessels were destroyed in a storm, killing almost all of the expedition members, including Pánfilo de Narváez.
