The friar is Lazaro’s fourth master, whom Lazaro serves for only a brief time. Because he is a monk, the friar is presumed to have recused himself from worldly matters, but he seems to spend all his time running about on errands of a sexual nature. Lazaro quickly tires of following him around and decides to find another master.
