She is the sister of Alberto Molina and the daughter of Mrs. and Ramón Molina. The Molinas are Ecuadorian, and speak Spanish.


Vicita and her family are originally from Ecuador. Not long before the events in Elwood and the original Arthur series, the Molinas emigrated from Ecuador to the United States, crossing the border illegally (Arthur and los Inmigrantes Ilegales). Soon after, the Border Patrol caught up with them, and they were deported back to Ecuador.
