Victor Contreras is an Executive in Universal Petroleum's "Higher up" branch. He is in need of rescue in the first part of the game when the player is introduced to Universal Petroleum. Apparently, the VZ are holding him for ransom and it is up to you -with the help of the T.S.I Mercenaries- to find and rescue him.
After helping Ewan place the three listening posts to triangulate the position of Victor, eventually the VZ captors declare that UP have failed to evacuate the country and they are going to kill Victor, Fiona then gets a fixed location on Victor and notices he is being transported in an armored truck which is resilient to small arms fire. The player then hijacks the truck and kills the driver, saving Victor and returning him to the UP HQ.
