Benito was a young Southern vampire entrenched in Puebla, who invented the concept of a newborn army with the concept of conquering Mexico City, and was widely successful with it. This eventually led to the vampire wars of the south that ended when the Volturi recognized them as a problem. Jasper stated that by successfully capturing Northern Mexico, the Volturi were "cleaning" house for a year.
Benito is the Spanish word for "blessed".
