In the beginning, the story is set in the village, primarily around Kino's hut. He is described as a good man and as one that loves his wife and son.
However, by the end of the story, Kino and his family find themselves in a cave--that's going backward in evolution a bit, right?!
When Kino and Juana and their son are "trapped" on this mountain, the descriptions of Kino change drastically. He is described much like an animal is described--he almost becomes non-human.
Kino is at first a loving human, but by the end becomes an animal...all thanks to the greed he develops once he discovers the pearl!
