Virgilio Morales (Lio), is "a tall thin man" with thick, wire-rimmed glasses. When Dede and Minerva meet him, he has just returned from Venezuela, where he earned his medical degree. He asks Minerva to come away with him, and he sends her letters which Enrique Mirabal, her father, keeps from her. Lio is "a communist, a subversive," whose name often appears in the newspaper. Minverva's relationship with Lio is influential in bringing her into the movement.
