|“||When I was little, we found a man. He looked like - like butchered. The old woman in the village crossed themselves and whispered crazy things, strange things. "El Diablo cazador de hombres." Only in the hottest years this happens. And this year, it grows hot. We begin finding our men. We found them sometimes without their skin and sometimes much, much worse. "El cazador trofeo de los hombres" means the demon who makes trophies of men.||„|
|― Anna, describing previous encounters with the Predators|
Anna Gonsalves was played by Elpidia Carrillo in Predator.
She was a member of a Communist guerrilla force operating in Central America. She was intelligent, resourceful and trained to deceive others. She was captured in 1987 by Alan "Dutch" Schaefer's private military team at a camp full with russian military advisors, who were planning an invasion from there.
The confrontation with the Predator Edit
At first she saw them as the enemy, but this changed after their mission was finished, because after that Dutch's squad subsequently came into contact with a Predator, that stalked and killed the elite mercenaries one-by-one. She had to see the death of the first one first-hand, which traumatized her.
While she had no prior experience of the Predator herself, she knew of its existence through folk legends of a "demon" that, during hot summers, would kill people and horribly mutilate their corpses as trophies.
She therefore helped Dutch in any way she could since then, when he decided to ally himself with her. She was also the one that noticed, that the Predator has bright green blood and can be wounded and told Dutch about it. When everyone of Schaefer´s team died, Dutch made sure she would reach his people and tell them about the Predator by telling her the Predator would not harm her, because the Predator only wants to kill people with guns, which she didn´t have.
She went to the Americans to report what was going on. General Philips had a tendency towards believing her because of her extensive knowledge about Dutch and everything else and flew with her and a helicopter to find Dutch. Whatever doubts he had they disappeared after they saw the small nuclear explosion, that the Predator ignited after he was defeated by Dutch. She, along with Dutch, were the only ones who survived the incident in Val Verde virtually unharmed.
She belonged to the people, who took Dutch home after his fight with the Predator and would go on to provide details of the encounter to the American government, like Dutch. She was traumatized because of this. The footage of this interrogation was briefly seen by Mike Harrigan in Predator 2.
