I’ve learned many things about the character. Mona Ruiz was a gangster around her teen years then switched her whole life around. In the introduction I’ve leaned that Mona Ruiz was once a gangster then changed her life to become a police officer. When she was a gangster the girls would cover themselves with lots of makeup to make them look older. One of the missions that Mona had as an officer was to go back to being a “chola” and get drugs.
