Guide Mentor

Character Role Analysis

Clara, Old Pedro García

Clara serves as a guide not only to Alba, but also to pretty much everyone who comes to her for solace or advice, including Esteban Trueba. Old Pedro García also does his fair share of mentoring. Interesting how the wisdom of the elders is personified in both a female and a male character, huh?
