KIno thinks the pearl is they key to bettering his family and giving him a sense of manhood he never had. Kino wants to send his child to school. He wants his wife to have nice clothes and he never wants to beg for a doctor (like an animal) like he did before. These illusions control Kino and cloud his judgment.
