Biography[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

Rebeca is a new student at Las Encinas school in the series. She grew up poor, and at some point in her early life, her father died while working as a construction worker, leaving Rebeca and her mother on their own. After her father's death, her mom opened a haberdashery in their neighborhood but was forced to close due to the opening of a shopping mall right next to her business. Desperately, Rebeca's mom had to "look for a business that had little to no competition", and entered the drug world. Her family came into a lot of wealth because of this and with all of their money, they purchased Guzmán and Marina's old house and moved in.

Rebeca didn't click with the rich kids of Las Encinas. She was much more attracted to people like Nadia and Samuel, who come from a similar background. Rebeca formed close friendships with Nadia and Samuel and even had a crush on Samuel.

Season 2[edit | edit source]

We get our first glance at Rebeca when she and her mother arrive at their new house, Guzmán's old house. We then see her arriving at Las Encinas, much to the shock of Guzmán and his girlfriend Lu. Samuel approaches her during gym to tell her to put away her phone before the teacher takes it away. Samuel then introduces her to Nadia.

Throughout the season, Samuel and Rebeca often box together. Rebeca encourages Samuel to find out about the truth of Marina's murder from Carla.

Rebeca's mom continues dealing drugs and eventually gets arrested because Samuel put a listening device in their house (a deal he made with police in exchange for helping his brother).

Rebeca is left with no money but she finds several bags of drugs that her mother left behind. She decides to sell them with Valerio's help to get money to pay for school and food. Eventually, once Carla gets sick from the drugs, Rebeca decides to give up selling drugs and she even asks her mom to do the same when she gets out of jail.
