Proprietor of the "Dog and Monkey" and outspoken opponent of the Jomba Town Council, Alfredo has more than a few scars from floggings to attest to both the cruelty and pragmatism of the Council. They could not simply kill a man with so high a profile, but still dealt with thim as severly as they could nonetheless.
It is in his bar that the crew are approached by a stranger who drinks there for the anti-council rhetoric as much as anything else as he has discovered a Shallow Grave.
After the Jomba Town Council is shown to have been involved in several murders - including that of the towns founder, Jomba, Alfredo is elected as the Mayor of Jomba Town - though he still keeps his business at the Dog and Monkey.
As long as he is in charge, the Crew are guaranteed a warm welcome in Jomba Town.
