Inés’s father in “Eyes of Zapata,” who dislikes Emiliano because of his renegade politics and revolutionary character. Inés thinks that Remigio and Emiliano are such “perfect enemies” because they’re so similar to one another. The only difference, she says, is that Remigio isn’t a good fighter, a fact made obvious by how badly he gets injured in battle. He eventually dies with a hole in his back that sucks air in and out like a mouth. On his deathbed, he calls out his wife’s name, the syllables of which issue forth from the strange hole in his back.
