To hell with that rotten century! When he senses malice or dishonesty, he hears the Song of Evil. Rodriguez lives in Monterey and is a friend of the Torres family. A man will have clean hands once we get the lid slammed shut on that stinking century. He lives in a brush house, and he makes his living as a pearl diver. Although the story says nothing about the father other than his manner of death, his presence is constantly felt. Not surprisingly, nature imagery is an important element of the novella. When he is happy with his family in Chapter 1, for instance, he hears the Song of the Family.

Kino is much less likely to become aware of the sensation of wariness than he is to hear the Song of Danger in his head. Kino observes the world of his garden in the opening scene of Chapter 1 and the world of the ocean in Chapter 2. Torres is Pepe's father who, ten years prior to the time of the story, died when he tripped over a stone and fell on a rattlesnake. And each would have been horrified to think it was a different facet of the same thing. . . .
