Rise to power
Raul was a shady and corrupt drug dealer running his own militia. His connections appealed to the Cartel due to logistical benefits.
He staged a successful coup d'etat with the help of Cartel's Olympus Cell, as depicted in the aptly named mission during "Behind the Mirror" where they besiege and occupy the sites. Cartel then leaves Escobedo as a puppet while they are busy on their own schemes.
Escobedo's militia are overthrown, his ground support is crushed, and he is captured during a Chimera assault. He is taken to the Hague to be interrogated and tried for war crimes. To prevent Chimera from tracing him to them, the Olympus Cell employs the White Wolves to assassinate him before this occurs. While this was successful, Cartel merely delayed the inevitable when Chimera ultimately uncovered the Olympus Cell's machinations via leads from the White Wolves and Damocles.
