Barranca was a Peruvian Porter.
Not much is known about Barranca. It is unknown if he assisted in Satipo's betrayal to Forrestal, an archaeologist who arrived in search of the fertility idol.
South America, 1936
In 1936, Barranca and Satipo did join American archaeologist Indiana Jones in search of the idol. Barranca and Satipo were the only guides left with Indy after two other guides were killed by Hovitos Tribesmen. Barranca attempted to kill Indy with his pistol, but Indy was quick enough to use his bullwhip to take the firearm out of Barranca's hands. Barranca, terrified, fled into the jungle. His fate is unknown. It is likely that he was killed by the Hovitos. It is also unknown whether he worked for Satipo's boss Emile Belloq or not.
