Pepe views Valentina's cousin Julián (Damián Jareño) as a rival mainly because he identifies him on more than one occasion as "el hijo de un político nefasto" (the son of a stinking politician), connoting an ideological division in society, since Pepe is echoing the opinion of his father.
Pepe attempts to eliminate this rival in a show of machismo, as he puts his finger at the end of the barrel of Julián's gun and tells him to shoot.
Pepe's father thinks that the boy is a poet, since he discovers rhymes by Bécquer in Pepe's room, but the fearlessness that Pepe shows throughout the narrative points to his heroism, and the final episode in the tunnels under the castle confirms the boy's bravery.
