Domingo Chavez, better known as Ding Chavez, is a fictional character created by American author Tom Clancy and appearing in many of his novels and video games. Born in Los Angeles, California, date of birth January 12th 1968. Domingo was first recruited to be a member of a secret CIA-run anti-drug operation in Colombia in Clear and Present Danger, while he was still in the U.S. Army. He first met John Clark during this novel and has worked with him since. He is married to John Clark's daughter, Patricia, with whom they have a child, John Conor Chavez. He, along with Clark, rescued a Japanese politician who was former prime minister (and later re-elected) in Debt of Honor. Soon after the events in the Japanese conflict, Domingo worked again with John Clark in implementing Blue Light (recruitment of law enforcement officers as intelligence officers) during Executive Orders. Clark and Chavez lead multiple operations for President Ryan in this novel. He later was recruited into and ultimately became team leader in the multinational counterterrorist organization RAINBOW in Rainbow Six, which defeated several terrorist groups and prevented a bioterrorism plague.
