Rafael Joaquín de Ferrer was born in Guipúzcoa (Gipuzkoa) in 1730s, TO A TEMPLAR FAMILY, and sent to Cuba at an early age. IN 1765, HE WORKED WITH GOVERNOR JEAN-JACQUES BLAISE D'ABBADIE TO ENSURE THE TRANSITION OF THE LOUISIANA TERRITORY TO TEMPLAR OVERSIGHT.
UNLike Antonio de Ulloa, he was A RUTHLESS SOLDIER who rose to prominence and responsibility, overseeing excavation research. DE FERRER WAS A KEY PROPONENT OF A TEMPLAR INITIATIVE TO DIVERT SLAVE LABOR TO SEARCH FOR FIRST CIVILIZATION ARTIFACTS. He WAS ASSASSINATED at a Chichen Itza work site, AT THE HAND OF NOTED ASSASSIN, AVELINE DE GRANDPRÉ.
