Julio Sanchez (born 1960, died 2009) is a supporting character in the Clockwork series, though he's rarely seen. Director of South America for the Paradise Foundation, Julio is also the chairman of the board. After becoming chair Julio pushed for the Foundation to use the Black department as a means to essentially take control of the whole world, though he knew he probably wouldn't live to see it happen. When Ashley Tisdale joined Paradise however she brought data on Erika Stone, whom he thought would be able to put his goal within reach. When Ronald Fisher protested Julio had him killed, making it look like a heart attack. Julio's ambitions led to the creation of the Uranus Generator, but Scott Dawson, Fisher's protégé, sabotaged it and turned the entire organization over to Interpol. Julio was eventually sentenced to life in prison for allowing various crimes to occur, though not being able to connect him to any extremely heinous crimes prevented the invocation of the death penalty. Julio was rescued from jail by Ouroboros and given the chance to become immortal by Richard Stilton, wanting someone he could trust as a person who could potentially become ageless. Unfortunately the Immortality Gate instead ended up killing Julio.
