Pascual is an Italian physicist and astronomer who works for the University of Belgium and has to travel and teach in other universities as part of his job with the University of Belgium. Pascual is a man of strong convictions but he is affectionate and warm with his family. He is a very good friend to Pascualina as well as her father and sees a profound sensitivity in her approach to life. He always advises her to find the answers to her problems by herself. His character is forceful and demanding but at the same time his passion for constellations shut himself off from reality very easily. His intellectual and scientific view has allowed him to have a good knowledge of the human nature. Along with his wife, Placida, he has educated their children with freedom and autonomy. He values honesty above all.
