Hernando Cortez is a former Weyland Consortium technician convicted of smuggling company tech. Due to a loophole in Weyland's standard employment contract at the time of his incarceration, he was able to collect his pension while in prison. The loophole has since been closed.[1]

His namesake is the Cortez Chip, which he designed.
