Main Characters

    Catalina Santana 

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cata_4991.bmpPortrayed by Carmen Villalobos

Antagonic Protagonist, aspires to be an actress.

  • All Women Are Doms, All Men Are Subs: Averted. Her services go in quite the opposite direction. She prefers to service her men as though they were kings ie: taking off their shoes, giving them massages etc.
  • All Women Are Lustful: She tends to behave like this at least while on the job.
    • The irony is that when it came to being intimate with her boyfriend she was shy and was more of a tease.
  • All Women Are Prudes: Before she became a prepaid girl.
  • Am I Just a Toy to You?: With Titi before she began to despise him.
  • Brainless Beauty: Not the sharpest tool in the shed, especially when you consider that she could have been able to get her so desired implants really early on if she had been able to do basic math and applied common sense during that doctor's visit
  • Catholic School Girls Rule: Donned the outfit for some of her johns.
  • Dress Hits Floor
  • Ethical Slut
  • Fetish
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Occasionally employs this though she never really goes to far. Does this to rile up her johns.
  • Happy Ending Massage: Sometimes does this to relax her clients.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Subverted. Though she is not as corrupt as the majority of the characters she is not unwilling to use and abuse those that care about her to get what she wants.
  • Innocent Innuendo: Part of her tease routine.
  • Jail Bait: She is in high school probably no older than 16 when she begins to involve herself with johns that are well into their late 30's early 40s. Or older...
  • Lust Object: Can be viewed as this.
  • Really Gets Around: Seeing as she works as a prostitute, yet she wasn't as active as her other friends and most of those times weren't done out of pleasure or love.
  • Sexual Extortion: When she get in way over her head with the drug lords.
  • Sex for Services: The reason she even contemplates becoming a prepaid girl is so that she can have the money to buy whatever she want (in her case, implants) as well as receive gifts from johns ranging from vacations, to jewellery, to clothing, to just about anything else.
  • Sex Montage
  • Suicide by Assassin: She told Pelambre that she wanted to eliminate Yésica and prepared everything to have a meeting with her ex-best friend in an open air restaurant. When it was nearly time for the reunion, Catalina called Pelambre to tell him that Yésica was waiting at a table reading a bible, and that it was the moment to strike. The two assassins that Pelambre hired did the job without incident but when he called Catalina to tell her the news, once he approached the scene when the police and paramedics arrived, she wasn't answering, it was then that he noticed that the phone near the corpse was ringing too and upon closer inspection he realised that the victim was actually Catalina and that she had used his affections as a way to secure her death.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Well, to start, she was raped by 3 guys who took advantage of her naiveté and the fact that she felt hurt that the boss wasn't interested in her because she had small breasts, something she felt real self-conscious about. Not long after that, she had to have an abortion, which was a painful and traumatic experience. Later on, she would have her implants, but without the knowledge that she was being used as a mule to transport drug in them, which resulted in her developing an infection and having to have them removed leaving her unable to have have another pair implanted. Her brother is killed, her mother and ex-boyfriend (who she claimed was the love of her life) fell in love with each other and her mom was expecting his child. Her best friend betrayed her and stole her husband from her, leaving Catalina poor, without protection and humiliated. After all of this, is no wonder why she wished to take her life.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: The most beautiful girl in her group that marries an old but powerful drug lord.
  • Unproblematic Prostitution: Horrendously Averted. Yes, everything starts out somewhat nice for her. Yes, she begins to have everything that she wants. Yes, she manages to get the implants she so desired... but it all comes at the cost of her dignity and well-being. And, to top it all, she has become involved with some seriously dangerous men who at the slightest indication of betrayal would not hesitate in killing her or the ones she loves.

Tropes found in the sequel

This section has heavy spoilers for the 3rd season of Sin Senos Sí Hay Paraíso

  • Action Mom: Has two children and is an agent of the DEA
  • Character Development: By the end of the first series, she had begun to see that the choices she made had brought her nothing more than pain and regret and by the second series she had begun to act with much more maturity and sensibility.
  • Mama Bear: Fiercely protective of her children. Even though she was at odds with Mariana, she did not hesitate in beating Dayana up when she realised that that woman was trying to lure her teenage daughter into prostitution.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Her beauty has not diminished the slightest in the 20 years she was absent and even now has more than one character go ga-ga over her, unfortunately some still try to take advantage of her.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She went from an abused prostitute, to the wife of a drug lord, to a survivor who put her abusers in jail and later on became a valuable operative to the DEA.

     Hilda Santana 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hilda_Santana_1489.bmpPortrayed by Catherine Siachoque

Catalina and Bayron's mother, later she falls in love with Albeiro

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: Had her children at a young age and when they are in their late teens-early twenties she ends up pregnant once again by the end of the series
  • Anger Born of Worry: Her children try to hide their illegal activities from her but she knows that they are doing something dangerous and from time to time she tearfully and angrily pleads with them to stop
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Albeiro. It has to be noted that this was showed to exist in a small degree even before he truly broke up with Catalina
  • Education Mama: She wanted Bayron and Catalina to finish their studies and get a decent job or even enter college
  • Parents as People: Yes, the fact that she ends up having a romantic relationship and a baby with her daughter's ex is not something that many would accept easily but, it can be understandable if you take into consideration that her children, while wanting to bring more money to the house, end up becoming like the people she warned them against and the only one who seemed to show any sort of support and compassion was Albeiro, accompanying her in her grief for her children.
    • Again, in the sequel, when Catalina the Young finds out about the story of her parents, she gives them a "Reason You Suck" Speech and time and time again throws the fact that they sheltered her too much and didn't let her truly live back to their faces, not wanting to see their side

Tropes found in the sequel

  • My Beloved Smother: When Catalina the Young was a toddler, Hilda decided to paint a yellow line on the floor of the entrance of their house, declaring that her daughter should not cross it under any circumstance or something bad would happen. She also didn't want Catalina to go to parties or even go to the store alone, however, this can be seen as justified when you remember that both of her eldest children were killed partly because of the toxic influence around them
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Her over protectiveness of Catalina showed to be a double edged sword because, while Catalina truly became a respectful and kindhearted girl, it also made her naive about the world which prompted her to try and fight back against Daniela, who made use of her influence to destroy Catalina and her family, kickstarting the events of the series.

     Yésica "La Diabla" Beltrán 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/La_Diabla_7427.bmpPortrayed by María Fernanda Yépez

Catalina's best friend, villain, boss of the pre-paid girls

  • Evil Redhead: Not so much at the beginning but by the end she becomes this and it gets amped up by the sequel
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Wasn't as obvious at the beginning but as the story progresses she comes to resent and envy Catalina's success
  • Informed Flaw: Almost everyone in the cast remarks on how she isn't the prettiest, comparing her unfavourably with Catalina. However, the actresses portraying her are drop dead gorgeous
  • Pet the Dog: She has these moments, like when she accompanied Catalina to have an abortion and took care of her after

Tropes found in the sequel

  • Bad Boss: Even when you manage to do a good job she has a tendency to put you down and her rewards can be a double edged sword, especially if you do badly on your next assignment
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The only two people she unconditionally loves and support are her mother and daughter.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: She decided to fake her death so as to manipulate everything behind the scenes and clear her path. However, because of her "death" there was a power vacuum that led to a struggle amongst the characters (both allies and enemies of her) leaving Yésica on the sidelines and unable to act in the open while her empire and daughter were in danger.
  • More Deadly Than the Male: She does not hesitate to put a bullet in the head of someone she dislikes or sees as useless with far more ease than the drug lords she once feared. Even the former heavy weights that she once worked for recognise that she's several times more cruel and unstable.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: She has enough money to buy every person of influence twice over. Actually, she also abuses of her beauty and the fact she has enough power to do as she pleases
  • Took a Level in Badass: In her youth, she stayed in her lane and was only in the business of procuring pretty girls for the drug lords and was afraid of the possibility of being killed by them. Now, she's the head of a drug empire. Not only is she more shrewd and savvy than most everyone else but she also knows her way around guns and has learned how to fight.
