Antonio "Tony" Márez  The youngest of six children of Gabriel and María Márez. Six-year-old  Antonio is a precocious boy who is intrigued by the events in his life and torn by several dilemmas  that he faces during this period of his life. He is caught between the opposing destinies envisioned  for him by his parents, and he struggles to find his own path. In the process, he serves as an  "apprentice" to Ultima, adapts to going to school, makes his first holy communion, and witnesses  several fatal events. Ultima ("la Grande")  The elderly "folk healer" who comes to live with the Márez family. She has  been a midwife to many women in the area and is sought for assistance by those who believe they  have been cursed. She mentors Antonio during her final years. María Luna y Márez
