Chela [2] is a minor character in The Book of Life. She isn't seen in the movie, but posters of her can be seen in one of the bars in San Ángel [3].

Physical Appearance

Chela is a slender woman, with long brown hair and brown eyes. She wears a red top with white ribbons, brown shorts and knee-high heeled boots. In her right leg she has a ribbon with a small dagger, and has a red flower in her hair.


She is the equivalent of Joaquin in a girl [4]. Besides being as or more dangerous than her father Chakal.


Chela doesn't have a role on the first film, but if a sequel ever gets made it is likely for her to appear in it, most likely as one of the main antagonists. She would be coming to San Ángel to avenge her father's death [5].

At some point, she will receive the Medal of Everlasting Life from El Chamuco [6].


  • Chela has a female [7] wolf named "Loba" [8].
  • Chela wasn't present in the battle of San Ángel because she was in prison [9].
  • One of her weapons is the Sword of the Seven Sins.
  • She also knows about the Medal of Everlasting Life.
  • She will also most likely be an "interesting" rival for Joaquin [10].
