(Capcom's primary storyline)
Amparo is a region in South America. The village of Mixcóatl lied in this region.
Throughout the 1990s and up to 2002, the region was dominated by the wealthy drug lord Javier Hidalgo, and was constantly under threat from Communist insurgents. This and an expected raid by government forces persuaded Javier to use Crimson Heads as a means of getting rid of intruders.
The region is dominated by the Amazon Rainforest and a river.
The Javier Dam is a large structure built along the river.
"Amparo" is an Iberian name, and the name of a number of communities in Brazil.
