- "You can't kill me... I'm a patch president."
- ―Salazar to SAMCRO
Hector Salazar was the former president of the Calaveras MC Lodi chapter, a low-ranking club that did dirty work for the Mayans. He was stripped of his patch and excommunicated from his own club by Marcus Alvarez. He serves as one of the main antagonists of Season 3.
Salazar is at his home when SAMCRO come looking for him for the drive- by when a member of the Calaveras Pozo is arrested for it. They take him to "the hole" after he refused to say why the Mayans put his crew up to the shooting. They bury him neck deep in the ground and ride their bikes at high speed near him to get him to talk. Scared he says that the Mayans are patching over his club to set up a heroin operation in Lodi. (Oiled)
Hecter and his crew jump Juice in the Chicken Man's van and steal his MC cut. (Turning and Turning)
Marcus Alvarez is upset with Salazar for losing a heroin shipment to SAMCRO. Alvarez decides not to patch over Hector's MC and agrees to SAMCRO's terms to let the Grim Bastards move the heroin. After Alvarez returns Juice's cut, Juice beats up Salazar for the earlier attack. (The Push)
Salazar has one of his men kill the Grim Bastards VP Lander for taken the heroin shipment from him without the Mayans sanctioning it. He is at a rally with his club and the Mayans when they bring him to a park restroom and forced at gunpoint by Alvarez and Clay who killed Lander. He says Edgar, his Sgt. at Arms "killed the fat man" and T.O. kills him. He is stripped of his patch and excommunicated by Alvarez. He treatens Jax for stomping his cut into the toilet and is punched by Clay. With his girlfriend Luisa he began tracking Tara, hoping to get revenge on SAMCRO through her. (Widening Gyre)
Jacob Hale, Jr. uses Salazar's hatred of SAMCRO to his advantage by bribing Hector to rough up Lumpy, an old stubborn gym owner, who is loyal to the SOA. Salazar shoots up the gym and pistol whips Lumpy with the butt of his assault rifle and falsely proclaims to Lumpy that he is sending a message from the Mayans, thus attempting to re-ignite the war between the Mayans and SAMCRO. (Lochán Mór)
After attacking Lumpy, Hector and Louisa blackmail Hale, Jr. into giving them information about Tara Knowles and then the two proceed to take Tara and Margaret Murphy hostage during a staged car accident.
He was stabbed to death by Jax Teller.
