Fenix Calderon is the secondary antagonist in the 2009 film, Fast & Furious. He is a drug trafficker and the right-hand man of Arturo Braga (who went by the name Ramon Campos), the leader of a drug cartel in Mexico that ran heroin across the Mexico-US border. He also attempted to kill Letty Ortiz.
He was portrayed by Laz Alonso.
Arturo Braga (disguised as Campos) would hire drivers to run heroin under the US-Mexican Border, with Fenix as the leader. Once the delivery was complete, however, Fenix and his fellow henchmen would kill all of the drivers on the orders of Braga. Letty was one such driver who was working undercover for Brian O'Conner. She did, however, manage to escape in her car as she realized that Fenix was going to murder the team. However, Fenix chases her and crashes into her car, flipping it over. As Letty lies injured, Fenix approaches her with the intention of shooting her. However, he chooses to shoot the gas tank and Letty is thrown into the underbrush where Fenix leaves her for dead. However, she survives, albeit with amnesia, and later becomes a member of Owen Shaw's team.
In a chase through the tunnels, he T-boned Brian O'Conner's car, causing him to crash. When Brian crawls out of the car, Fenix kicks him a few times and is about to shoot him but Dom comes out of the tunnel and T-bones him, using a Chevrolet Camaro F-Bomb, killing him.
- His car of choice is the 1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport.
- Fenix is similar to Professor Z from Cars 2; they serve as the main antagonist for most of the story until they are revealed as the right-hand man of a crime boss, but they serve as The Heavy and drive the plot of the story.
