Another YVY character, Father Juan Diego, had a brief appearance in episode 1. The unusual priest came to the reduction to investigate the case of the cattle that appeared dead. Descendant of the Nahuat people of Mexico, he has ideas about the universe that clash somewhat with what the Catholic church thinks, so he is willing to investigate a problem from more than one point of view.
This character was inspired by a true Juan Diego. This is the Mexican mestizo who witnessed the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the 16th century. Setting up an interesting case of Catholic and “pagan” syncretism.
Father Juan Diego disappeared in episode 1, will he come back?
