- "Welcome to the Circus!"

Escobar, or Bar for short, was a slave captured by the Zenda Brothers Circus after the Invasion of the United States.
Like the other slaves, or "Donkeys" as they are sometimes referred to, Escobar was captured by the Circus leaders Alfonso and his wife Leena by one of three methods: Losing to Leena in a midnight blackjack game, believing that Leena is dead and approaching her child before being taken out by Alfons or believing that Alfonso and Leena's child is sick and getting captured when trying to offer aid. Escobar was captured by the first method, loosing to Leena in a game of midnight blackjack but claims that he and Alfonso's wife had "a very good time" before his capture. Escobar and the other slaves were captured and used to pull the Zenda Brother's Wagon from town to town. Once they reach a town where Ringmaster Jack could gather an audience, the circus held shows where an unfortunate slave had a fight to the death with El Diablo a captured Steelhead. The Slave usually lost.
On the November 3rd, 1953 Escobar along with the other surviving slaves were freed by fellow slave Joseph Capelli after Susan Farley ambushed the circus. Bar was the only one who thanked Capelli as the rest were too busy yelling insults at him.
Escobar is described as having yellow teeth, short black hair, brown eyes and high cheek bones. Due to his capture, he is unshaven like the rest of the men.
