She is, like Kino, from a poor family. She regards family as the most important thing. Unlike Kino, Juana is able to see the evil the pearl has on men's hearts.She dutifully supports her husband, despite his worsening treatment of her, but warns him against the dangers that the pearl can bring to the family. Juana remains steadfast throughout the story and devoted to maintaining her family. She even refuses to obey Kino when he suggests that they take separate paths to avoid the trackers.
