Victor Character Analysis

Victor is a young man about Lizet’s age who attended her high school. Victor’s grandmother is involved with the Ariel Hernandez case and the Madres Para Justicia—and by proxy, so is Victor. Lizet meets him when she goes with Lourdes to Ariel’s apartment complex, and he speaks to her cruelly, calling her a “sellout” for leaving Miami and accusing her of spying on the people working on Ariel’s behalf so that she can report on them.
