Esperanza (Hope) Cordero - the narrator and central character

Mama Cordero - Esperanza's mother

Papa Cordero - Esperanza's father

Many other characters come and go to help create the fabric that is Esperanza's life.  I think you could make a really strong argument that the setting itself  is developed much like a character and is in fact a main character, but that's dealing in the abstract.
