Toreador

 

(or torero), a person who takes part in a bullfight in an arena. There are several classifications of toreadors: the capeadors tease the bull with red capes, the picadors irritate the bull with lances, the bandilleros plunge decorated barbed sticks into the animal, and the matador, or espada (sometimes called the toreador), kills the bull with a sword.
