Mr. Contreras: Sal Contreras is V.I.'s downstairs neighbor and co-owner of the dogs Peppy and Mitch. He's a retired machinist, and a loyal if sometimes aggravating friend to V.I. He's happy to join any fray she might get mixed up in but more grudging about accepting any of the men she might be dating as having any equal right to aide her in her fights and adventures. V.I. used to be more frustrated by his open interest in her life but by now she has come to rely on him as a trusted friend.
