A no-filter playboy rebel who doesn’t live by his strict father’s rules and loves to disobey him. Javi marches to the beat of his own drum and his smart mouth can sometimes get him in trouble. The loss of his right leg above the knee and the subsequent fallout and trauma he conceals with his playboy bravado is the foundation that many of his growth moments come from.
In his younger years Javi had a passion for baseball. His dreams of playing professionally were cut short by a yet to be flushed out injury that cost him his right leg above the knee. Javi uses a prosthetic normally concealed under long pants. His injury is a source of great trauma that seems to have lead him to seek out frequent causal sex with many female parters and ultimately his playboy lifestyle.
- In an early script for the series' premiere, Javi's last name was "Cardenas".
- There was a character by the name of "Javier Mendoza" in showrunner Brian Tanen's previous series, Devious Maids.
