Tzekel-Kan is the main antagonist of the DreamWorks 2000 animated movie The Road to El Dorado. He is voiced by Armand Assante.

PersonalityEdit

While charismatic, commanding, influential and a bit unctuous, Tzekel-Kan is power-hungry, bloodthirsty, scheming, manipulative and even psychotic (much like Jafar in Disney's Aladdin). He has an extreme fondness for Ollamalitzli, the Meso-American ball game played by Tulio and Miguel.

Role in FilmEdit

Tzekel-Kan was first seen doing some kind magic trick when his acolyte came to him and tell him about the visitors (Tulio and Miguel). Tzekel-Kan calls out to everyone in El Dorado that the visitors were the gods who were to come and live among them just as he had prophesized.

However, he noticed that the "gods" weren't acting the way the ancient scrolls predicted. He was especially shocked when Miguel commanded no more "human" sacrifices and that Tzekel-Kan is no longer needed to speak for them. Tzekel-Kan then spotted a bleeding cut on Miguel's forehead and realized that he and Tulio are not really gods because gods don't bleed. He then used a dark potion to take control of a giant stone jaguar to get rid of the false gods once and for all. However, it backfired on him when Miguel and Tulio tricked him with their fake argument and the stone jaguar caused him to fall into the huge whirl pool that is said to be an entrance to the spirit world.

However, Tzekel-Kan survived the water's currents and ends up far away from El Dorado where he encountered Cortes and his soldiers. Believing Cortes and his men to be the true gods, a vengeful Tzekel-Kan begins to lead them to El Dorado to steal all of the gold and kill all of the citizens (including Tulio and Miguel). But when they got there, the entrance to the city had been destroyed (thanks to Tulio's plan). An angry Cortes then accused Tzekel-Kan as a liar, kicked him to the ground, and ordered his men to seize him before moving onward. Before they left, Tzekel-Kan noticed Chel hiding behind the rocks and told the men to wait, but they didn't listen and dragged him away.

It is unknown what happened to Tzekel-Kan after that, but it is possible he was either killed, imprisoned, or sold as a slave.
