Oscar Calraca diary
I've never known a problem can't be solved with the right kind of party.
― Oscar Calraca[src]

Oscar Calraca (often referred to as the Playboy) is a playable character in BioShock 2 Multiplayer available to those who purchased the Sinclair Solutions Tester Pack downloadable content along with Louie McGraff. Oscar was the ninth character to be revealed in the Cult of Rapture's Faces of Rapture's Civil War.

"Oscar Calraca is both a lover and a fighter. As a younger man, his business savvy, dedicated work ethic, and discriminating tastes earned him a fortune in cosmetics. Now, his concerns are more sensual in nature, and his tastefully extravagant A-list parties make him a permanent fixture in Rapture's gossip pages."


CONCEPT Calraca1

Before Splicing.

On the surface, Oscar made a name for himself in the field of cosmetology and had a collection of pussy cats that he took pride in. However, when Oscar was invited to Rapture, he was not allowed to take his cats along, which greatly angered him. One day, while throwing a party, Oscar meets Frank Fontaine, who offers to smuggle his contraband cats down to Rapture. At the same time, Fontaine introduces Oscar to ADAM and splicing. Oscar later grows addicted to ADAM and feeds it to one of his cats in an attempt to make it grow tiger stripes. This causes the cat to become addicted as well, and Oscar kills it for trying to steal his ADAM. He grows remorseful for this, though, and decides to splice himself a set of cat claws to "honor" the cat.

Oscar Calraca

Oscar's pre-spliced model.

Before Splicing[]


A once hard working man of style and flare, Oscar is dressed to impress. His ensemble, like his lifestyle, is a picture of comfort and luxury: he wears a red velveteen smoking jacket with black trim, over a mustard polka-dotted cravat. His trousers are a more casual dark beige. His shoes are white and brown wingtips and are polished to a shine. His hair is worn in the popular "conk" style of the period, short and neatly side parted, and he has a small, well-groomed mustache. He also wears a golden watch with a leather strap. Calraca takes part in the annual Cricket Championship, and his cricket bat from the competition can be used as his personal melee weapon.

After Splicing[]

Sadly, there was no luxury in the war for Oscar. His robe has been left heavily torn at the front, with the breast pocket ripped off and the collar coming undone. His right pants leg is torn at the end and he has a thick bandage wrapped around his left knee. He has at some point lost his watch and cravat, exposing the wounds around his neck. His face is badly beaten with a thick cut on his forehead and across his nose. A bandage has been placed over his left eye and his right is discolored and sagging. His cuts continue down his chest, where cancerous lumps appear. Two more deep cuts rest on the back of his left hand.
