"When the plumbing gets tough, the tough get plumbing."
–Salvador Drainado demonstrates his lack of originality.
Drainado was born on February 21, 1919 in Yuma, Arizona to Spanish immigrant parents. He later moved to Brooklyn and became a self-taught plumber before being drafted into World War II. After the war ended, he founded Plumber's Academy, but two annoying students named Mario and Luigi drove him insane, causing him to leave the school. In 1976, he attempted suicide by drowning himself in a bathtub, only to be sucked through the pipe to the world of Plit. When Mario and Luigi ended up on Plit as well, Drainado went to hide in a remote ice cave. He stayed there until Brooklyn Mario and Mama Luigi found him in 1989. He then tricked Brooklyn Mario into finding another warp pipe, convinced him it was a one-use and one-way transport, and went back to Earth. He now lives somewhere in Canada.
