In the beginning, Kino lives a calm life centered around his wife and his child and the dreams he has for the future if he could ever make any money and escape oppression. He assumed that the pearl would bring him the fulfillment of his dreams; in fact, it brought him the death of his son and a new awareness of just how cruel people could be.

The Pearl made his life much worse. Kino finds the "pearl of the world". Kino becomes obsessed with how the pearl might change his family's lives. Later Kino is simply obsessed with the pearl. The pearl becomes part of his psyche, part of his identity. Kino needs the pearl even though it is costing him everything.
