Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse

Hernandez is Xavier Marqués' old friend. He is seen inside the Castell dels Sants located in Catalonia, Spain during the war in 1937.

Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse[]

In 1937, during the Spanish Civil War, a group of soldiers allied with the Fascists break into the family house of Xavier Marqués bringing their bloody war to his house. Commanded by Gehnen, the military smashed everything in their path searching for something, probably the Tabula Veritatis.

After taking the painting and warning his family to leave the property, Xavier Marqués along with his friend Hernandez try to prevent Gehnen from getting his hands on “La Maledicció”. Hernandez, with a gun in hand, shoots every soldier at sight. While Marqués heads to the library looking for a way out the house. Unfortunately, they are shot to death like animals before they manage to escape. Gehnen’s men search their bodies and find the valuable painting.


  • Ramon, Marqués' family servant and friend, witnesses the death of Xavier and Hernandez.
  • It is seen in the Character Model Sheet of the game that Hernandez is in fact "El Serp", the artist who painted "La Maledicció". It is not said in any part of the story, so it might be possible that the script changed after the model sheet was shared.
