Paquita Lobo in Like Water for Chocolate

By Laura Esquivel

Paquita Lobo

We think it's no coincidence that Paquita's last name means "wolf" in English. For some reason, she's always looking for Tita to slip up, or to give her an excuse to gossip. When Tita gets flustered by Pedro's manly presence, for example, she thinks Tita is drunk. Later on, she suspects her of being pregnant. She-wolf, much?
