Rico is 25th playable character featured in Dead Island: Epidemic.
“Rico was vacationing with his family on Amaia when the outbreak happened. In the chaos Rico and his pet bird Marco got separated from his family. Both Rico and Marco were bitten and infected with conductor virus, Rico's immunity kept him from turning into a zombie; and Marco not being a human helped him out. The two now share empathy, fighting both infected and scavengers as one.”
— Rico's lore
Rico uses his pet bird Marco and his music to both help his allies as well as disrupt his enemies.
