This patron saint of drug dealers was fashioned out of an image of the old Patron, and was enshrined in several places in Opium. In this story he represents faith and belief, even if that faith is in something different.

Mirasol

Mirasol is the eejit girl that Matt takes a liking to. She represents his quest to free the eejits from their enslavement. All of the pressure of success he feels seems to be wrapped up in this one girl.
