Orgullo is Spanish for pride, the sin which brought about Satan’s fall from Heaven.

As an imparter of secret, even forbidden, knowledge, the figure of Don Arnulfo is a reminder that it was Satan who tempted Eve into eating the apple from the Tree of Knowledge and that Satan is also known as Lucifer (meaning light-bearer).
