―Flores to PRIDE[src]

Detective Flores was an officer of the Los Angeles Police Department. He was put in charge of the investigation on Destiny Gonzalez's death and issued a public statement indicating that he suspected the Runaways of being involved with the young girl's death, causing the Runaways to flee Los Angeles. Flores was instructed by PRIDE to find their children, but he failed to deliver significant results and was upset when he found out about the teenagers' superhuman abilities. Over time, Flores progressively lost control of the investigation he was conducting to his subordinate Anthony Wall, who ended up murdering him by freezing him to death.

Biography

Amy Minoru's Death

"Where's your husband?"
"Robert? He knows you're here."
"I'll handle it."
―Flores and Tina Minoru[src]

Working for Los Angeles Police Department, Detective Flores had ties with the so-called charity PRIDE. When Amy Minoru seemingly committed suicide, Flores was called by Tina Minoru and came to the Minoru Mansion to discuss the upcoming investigation. Flores later concluded that Amy's death was effectively a suicide.[3]

Destiny Gonzalez's Death

"Detective Flores says the LAPD believes she has fallen in with a group of teenagers that are persons of interest in the death of Destiny Gonzalez."
―News Reporter[src]

When the body of Destiny Gonzalez was found on the shore of Los Angeles beach, Geoffrey Wilder arranged for Flores to be put in charge of the investigation of the young girl's death.[4][3]

Later, Flores met with PRIDE members Robert Minoru and Victor Stein who had been caught in a brawl with the hobo Murray. They discussed the matter at the Los Angeles Police Station, where he was also informed that two teenagers wanted to see him to talk about Gonzalez's death. However, as Minoru and Stein left, Flores briefly spotted the teenagers leaving the station due to Nico Minoru having recognized Flores from the time he had come to the Minoru Mansion after Amy Minoru's death.[3]

Flores later agreed to lend two LAPD officers to Geoffrey Wilder to rescue his son Alex, who had been kidnapped by the Crips.[5]

Flores kept leading the investigation on Gonzalez's death and issued a warrant for the search of the Runaways, who were officially suspected of having abducted Molly Hernandez and being involved in Gonzalez's death.[6]

Hunt for the Runaways

Flores set up a city-wide manhunt to find the Runaways. He met with Graciela Aguirre, hoping that she could give him a clue about Molly Hernandez's whereabouts, but to no avail. Flores was then called by his officers who claimed to have found them all and thus immediately alerted PRIDE, inviting them to the Los Angeles Police Station for them to collect their children. However, Flores and his men actually failed to check the identity of the teenagers they had arrested, who were actually young people disguised so that they would look like the Runaways. Flores was heavily criticized for this failure by Geoffrey and Catherine Wilder, who order him to do a better and proper job next time.[7]

Flores was later approached by Catherine, who asked him to cancel the APB on the Runaways to motivate them to come home. However, Flores told Catherine that he could not do so if they had no other suspect for the Assassination of Destiny Gonzalez.[8] This finally occurred when Catherine informed him that they would frame Darius Davis, who she had just murdered, for the crime. Flores arrived at the Gordon Hotel, where Davis had been found, with his men. When Davis' girlfriend Tamar arrived, Flores told her that she could not access the crime scene and asked an officer to take Tamar away when she began screaming after being informed of the crime.[9]
