Lorenzo Alcazar first appeared in Port Charles in June 2003. At first,
Lorenzo seemed to be just like his brother Luis (who was killed by
Alexis). Coming to
Port Charles not only to revenge his brother’s death, Lorenzo came with a plan
to move drugs through the city. A violent, aggressive, persistent man, Lorenzo
soon became involved in Carly Corinthos’ kidnapping.
Showing no remorse, Lorenzo had no problem helping Ric Lansing
keep a pregnant woman locked up. Never liking it when things don’t go his way, Lorenzo
kidnapped Carly himself after Ric let her go. It was revealed that Lorenzo was a
man who could hold a grudge. All of his actions were tied to his theory that
Sonny Corinthos was the reason his brother was dead. While sailing on his yacht
with Carly, viewers saw a lighter, more revealing side of Lorenzo Alcazar. The
human side of Alcazar was exposed when he shared stories of his past loves with
Carly. Over a short amount of time, Alcazar had developed strong feelings for Carly.
Determined, Lorenzo tried everything he could to get Carly to see him in a
different light – to get her to realize that deep down he was a good man. After
many sneaky plots and plans, Carly was able to see the good side of Lorenzo and
realized her true feelings for him. While this was all occurring, Lorenzo dealt
with a big change in his life – the arrival of his niece, Sage. Putting to rest
everyone’s past ideas of him, Lorenzo showed that he could in fact care for a
teenager and be a wonderful father figure to Sage.
Lorenzo has also shown his loyalty in the way he stood up for Carly and
helped her fight for her children when Sonny sued for custody. Carly has also
tested his patience, but even when Lorenzo’s temper got out of hand, he usually
went back to the kinder man that viewers had gotten to know.
Lorenzo also kidnapped Courtney at one point, but later, when Sonny and Carly reunited, he helped Courtney cover up her hit-and-run of
Stefan tried to strangle Alcazar, but Carly saved his life. He hired a woman
to get surgery so that she would look exactly like Lily, Sonny's dead wife.
He had her try to "haunt" Sonny to drive him crazy. He almost succeeded.
Sonny got Carly to move into her dream house, and he had tried to push her
away. Carly fell down the stairs one night and went into labor. Lorenzo
helped her deliver her baby. Sonny heard her screaming and though tthat
Lorenzo was hurting her. He burst in the door and shot at Lorenzo, but he
bullet went through him and hit Carly in the head. Lorenzo and Carly ended
up in the hospital at the same time, but she was in a coma for a while.
Carly was very grateful to Lorenzo when she awakened. She rejected him when
she found out that he had been the one behind the lookalike.
Sonny tried to kill Lorenzo for what he did, but Lorenzo tried to get the
cops to find Sonny doing it so he would get put in jail. Sonny went on trial
but was found not guilty. He also tried to have Sonny shot, but
him. Carly chose Sonny once again over him.
Carly kept having mixed feelings for Lorenzo, and for a while she was
mentally unstable, so she checked herself into a mental institute. Jason
also kidnapped Lorenzo for a while. Sonny and Lorenzo had to work together
during the Port Charles Hotel fire. Lorenzo pretended to give up mob
activity while he helped Carly fight for custody of Morgan against Sonny,
but he secretly kept plotting against him. Lorenzo was blinded by an
explosion in the courthouse, so Carly stuck by him during his recovery.
Later, she found out that he had hired someone to set the blast.
Lorenzo was once again rejected by Carly, even after he helped save
Michael's life. He found out that Nikolas had amnesia and was calling
himself "Connor". He conspired with his wife, Mary, to keep his real
identity secret, and he gave him a job. He also paid for Sage to be signed
as a singer in L&B records and conspired with Ned against Tracy. Sage was
injured in a prank set by Georgie and lost her singing voice, but she
eventually recovered. Ned's ex-wife Lois was charmed by Lorenzo but resisted
him for a long time. Sage was murdered by crazy Mary, who was trying to kill
Emily. Lois made him see that revenge would be pointless.
Lorenzo conspired with Carly's father, John, against Sonny, but their
plans failed. When Sonny and Carly split up again, Lorenzo comforted
her. He stood by her side during a murder trial, too. Eventually, Carly
asked him to marry her, so he did. Unfortunately, Carly suffered
another mental breakdown and was put into a mental institution again. She
broke up with him after she got out.
Lorenzo learned that foster child Diego was his son. Lorenzo tried to
keep him out of his mob world. Diego went crazy after learning how Sage was
treated before she died. He drugged girls and took naked photos of them. He
went to prison for that. Lorenzo then fell for Skye Quartermaine, and she
got pregnant, which was a big surprise since she thought she couldn't get
Diego still wanted to be in the mob business after he got out of prison.
He was shot and presumed dead by Sam in a shootout. At first, Skye tried to
keep Lorenzo from his daughter, Lila Rae. Even after she changed her mind,
things were rocky for them.
Lorenzo tried to kill Sonny, but Sonny shot him in the head. He recovered
but had amnesia. Then he went into a coma. He eventually came out of it but
faked persistent amnesia for awhile. Skye was upset to learn about his
lying, and even more so when he kept her from Lila Rae and showed her his
violent side. She plotted with Jason and Sonny to kill Lorenzo after she got
her daughter back. She tricked Lorenzo into thinking that they were back
together, so he would bring Lila Rae back home. Jason killed Lorenzo
off-screen while Skye rocked her baby in the next room.
Later, there were hints that Alcazar might still be alive, but nothing
really came of them. Diego returned alive in 2008 and became the Text
Message Killer. After killing and terrorizing many women, he accidentally
hanged himself after a fight with Nikolas.
