Esteban is an orphan who was rescued at sea, west of Strait of Magellan, as a young child by the Spanish navigator Mendoza.

His father's ship was caught in a terrible storm when he was a baby. Esteban was on board, and the ship started to sink. Luckily, Magellan's ships passed close by and a sailor named Mendoza rescued Esteban, but couldn't rescue his father.

While growing up in Spain, he was taken in care by Father Rodriguez. The Spanish believed he has power to control the sun, so the Spanish would constantly hoist him up high to bring the sun out, this gift gets them out of trouble from time to time but Esteban does not believe he has the power to command the sun. Esteban has a fear of heights because he was hoisted up to call forth the sun. Even still, he's called the Child of the Sun.

He wears one of the two sun medallions. He loves adventures and is a very impulsive person. He joins the Spaniards in their search for one of The Seven Cities of Gold in the New World, hoping to find his father.


Esteban's name comes from the character of Estéban de Sandoval from Scott O'Dell's novel The King's Fifth.
