Santiago cares deeply for the young boy, and vice versa, “It made the boy sad to see the old man come in each day with his skiff empty…the boy loved him.”(9-10) Manolin takes care of Santiago even after he is no longer able to fish with him. Santiago is an outsider due to his age and his streak of bad luck. While some pity him for this, others mock his repeated and failed attempts to catch fish each day.
