Pablo "The Skinner" Cortés is a character and minor antagonist in Watch Dogs 2. He is the gang leader of the Tezcas.

Events of Watch Dogs 2

Pablo sent Luis Travino, Tina Huerta and Jorge Guttiérez to kidnap Horatio Carlin and bring him to a house in Woodland. He intended to torture him to obtain the names of the other DedSec members, but Horatio attacked him and Tina stabbed him, fatally injuring him. Because of this Marcus, with the help of the other members of DedSec, infiltrates a Tezcas hangout nearby and downloads information on them, followed by burning their marijuana greenhouse plantation.

With the intel gathered by a DedSec member, he then proceeds to destroy four crates of cocaine in the M.R.C. Richmond ship belonging to the gang to send a message. Next, he neutralizes Luis, Tina and Jorge back in Woodland. Finally, Marcus goes to Oakland's Chinatown (in the Pacific Renaissance Plaza) and meets another DedsSec member who tells him to infiltrate the dog fighting arena, located underneath a restaurant, where Pablo is hosting the fights. Marcus succeeds in doing this and manages to avenge Hoatio's death, neutralizing Pablo.


Pablo is an overconfident and proud leader, but still manages to keep his gang in order. It is implied he enjoys the torture he inflicts on his victims, making him a fearless sadist. According to an e-mail he sends to Tina Huerta, he trusts her the most among his lieutenants and thinks Luis and Jorge are stupid.


Pablo is a Latin American male with a shaved head and body full of tattoos.
