Pedro "Pedrito" Montero in Nostromo

By Joseph Conrad

Pedro "Pedrito" Montero

An ex-guerrillero, Montero's baby brother is quite the puppet master, helping to orchestrate and manipulate his big bro's political maneuverings. He takes it upon himself to try to take over Sulaco, but he fails when Nostromo successfully fetches and brings General Barrios (an anti-Monterist) back to town to fight. When the political tides turn, he flees.
