Sal Vidon.jpg Not part of Riordanverse

The following article/section is from the Sal & Gabi continuity under Rick Riordan Presents and not the Riordanverse canon.

Floramaria Vidon was the mother of Sal Vidón and the first wife of Gustavo Vidón.


She and her husband were born in Cuba but immigrated to the United States of America and had a son together. Eight years after Sal was born he and and his mother were in a car crash but survived with minor injuries. A year later she died of diabetic ketoacidosis.

Her son would unintentionally bring alternative version of her from other dimensions to his, causer her to fight with her husband and his new wife.

One alternative version was an athlete on the Cuban Olympic track-and-field team with six pack abs and “arms like a Machamp.” Another went crying around their old house looking for Sal’s brother and sister who did not exist in this dimension. Another worked at a post office and another was a catholic deacon. The fifth one destroyed the wedding picture of Gustavo and his real first wife in a fit of rage.

Despite all their differences, the one thing they have in common is a tendency to fly into a fit of rage when learning their husband is married to another woman.
