Santiago is the main character n the book The Alchemist.  He is introduced in the book by his name in the first line.  The book tells that he has a herd and he spends the night at an abandoned church.  He is a reader because he thinks about needing to read thicker books which he also uses for a pillow.

Santiago is awakened during the night and he lays thinking about a reoccurring dream.  He awakens his sheep and carries a crook.  He reads to his flock with the notion that they may understand what he reads to them. 

Santiago is in love with a beautiful girl.
