Kino becomes more and more isolated from his immediate and extended family. The lure of the pearl consumes Kino. He compromises his relationship with his wife Juana and his brother Juan Thomas. KIno becomes paranoid that his pearl will be taken from him and that his family might undermine his possession of the pearl. At one point he hits his wife for trying to get rid of the pearl that has poisoned their life.
