History

Season 1

Mike with a bullet wound in his shoulder, Mike relies on a streetwise taxi driver to help him find someone who can stitch it up without asking any questions, which leads him to Caldera. After offering him different types of pain killers, he offers to help Mike find illegal work. Mike declines, having put his dark days behind him. ("Five-O")

Mike visits Caldera once again, and has him examine a shelter dog he adopted. While there for the dog's examination, Mike asks the vet whether he still has the "work" available to which he previously alluded. ("RICO")

Season 2

Mike visits Caldera for the third time to inquire about more work. Dr. Caldera offers him a low-paying bodyguard job, but Mike requires more money. “You want next-level pay? You’ve got to do next-level work,” Caldera responds, mentioning that he knows a loan shark in need of an enforcer. Mike refuses to do any work requiring him to break legs, and settles for the bodyguard job instead. Later, Dr. Caldera calls Mike and offers him a “next-level” job from a guy specifically requesting Mike. ("Amarillo")

Season 3

After finding out he is being followed, Mike has Caldera meet him in a secret location in the middle of the night to help him find a tracking device of his own. He charges Mike double for the "after hours house call", and still asks about whether or not his dog is being taken of properly. ("Mabel")

Jimmy brings a cheap goldfish in a bag as a cover to see Caldera, who first chastises him for not having enough oxygen in the bag. Jimmy asks him to help find a professional pickpocket, and they eventually settle on Huell Babineaux. ("Chicanery")
