    5. 5. Ramon’ Ramon is a recently turned sixteen year-old with dreams of going pearling with his father. His father always said that “when he was sixteen he could go with him.” He gets the chance a few days a$er his sixteenth birthday. Ramon’ enjoys the trip even though his father does not a!ow him to dive and the trip shows little produce. Even though he understands why father doesn’t want him to dive, Ramon’ decides to learn anyway, so when a local Indian (they were common then) named Soto Luzon comes to se! him a pearl, as he does every few months or so. Ramon’ asks Luzon to teach him how to dive at the lagoon where Soto lives in exchange for a fee each trip.
    6. 6. Soto Luzon Soto Luzon is a old, weathered Indian man with few prospects for earning his daily wage. A retired fisherman, he lives in a secret lagoon, where the fiercest sea monster of a!, the Manta Diablo, lives. He not only teaches Ramon’ to be a diver, but he also becomes his good )iend. Luzon loses faith in Ramon’ when Ramon’ dives where he has been instructed not to--the cave of the Manta Diablo. There lies the Great Pearl of Heaven.
    7. 7. The Manta Diablo From an early age, children in Ramon’s community are taught to fear the Manta Diablo, as mothers threaten “to speak a word to the Manta Diablo” who wi! come find and eat them. Ramon’ does not believe the tale, for he has grown out of childhood, lingers in his tween stage. He hopes, partly, to find the tale is true, so that he disprove the elaborate descriptions various mothers provide in their te!ings. In truth, the Manta Diablo is a gigantic manta ray, regal, beautiful, and acting according to nature, but malice lies in the nature of its protection of the pearl and resentment for people, who always when they find him attempt to slay him with harpoons.

    9. 9. The Black Pearl The Black Pearl is so amazing that it begs description and redescription through kennings, or renamings. Like Jesus in the Bible, the Pearl is known in various ways: the Pearl of the Universe, the Great Pearl of Heaven, and the Paragon of Pearls. At first, it brings misfortune when it is given to the Madonna, and Ramon’s father dies in the Chabusco because hise father’s mind is clouded for having given the pearl to the Madonna. Later, attempting to return the pearl to the Manta Diablo but failing as the Servani!o take him and the pearl hostage, Ramon’ realizes that his hard fight makes him worthy of keeping the pearl to dedicate to the Madonna as tribute The pearl is magnificent at 62 karats with smoky color rather than a more typical black. It resembles a swirling storm.

    11. 11. The Servanillo A man who falsely claims to have come )om Servani!e, Spain, Gaspar Ruis, seeks the black pearl and is wi!ing to do harm to get it. His cruel deeds include being mean to Ramon’ who sees through his lies, lying to abscond with the pearl which rightfu!y belongs either to the ocean or to the people of La Paz, and hurting the Manta Diablo, a creature of nature. Battling the Manta Diablo, the Servani!o fata!y harpoons the magnificent creature, and this causes him to be pu!ed to the bottom of the sea where he drowns.
