Cole Lewis Márquez [a.k.a miguel] is Dora's father. Dora calls him Papi and he is also the father of Guillermo and Isabella. His wife is Mami. He and his wife appeared in several episodes of Dora the Explorer and School Daze.
Cole is very kind and caring towards his wife and 3 children. He is also shown to be a good coach and cook. He is also shown to be over-protective in certain situations. For example, he does not trust his kids around William, who is verbally abusive. They used to fight a lot, but stopped by the end of Uncle Funtime 3. He is also shown to be arrogant, absent-minded, strict, hot-tempered, and careless at times, but this is only to protect his children. Cole appears to have a strong rivalry against his brother Nico, who is better than him in many ways. He has sometimes accompanied Tom and the gang on their wild adventures, though this became less common by the end of Forever Sophomores. Now he only joins the gang during holidays. In the upcoming Lost City of Gold live-action film, He, along with his wife Elena, are explorers who are after the Lost City of Gold. Due to concern for her safety, They Can't bring Dora, so they leave her with Diego and his family while they search for it.
Cole has orange skin, brown eyes, and dark red hair. He also sports a mustache. He wears a blue dress shirt, a brown belt with a black buckle, khaki pants, and brown dress shoes.
Cole's outfit in the Virtual Paradise consists of a blue striped bowling shirt with short sleeves, khaki cargo shorts, and the same brown shoes.
In Dog-Daze and Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Cole’s hair and mustache are black and he gains a pair of glasses, as well as a watch on his left wrist.
