The Fire Keeper

Upon reaching New Mexico, Zane Obispo, Ren Santiago, Ah-Puch and Rosie find its footprint, which resembles a massive wolf paw print with long claws.


The Ahuilotl has an ugly, lopsided face and spiked fur along its spine and a lizard like tail with hand at the end to drag its victims.


  • The name, Ahuizotl, means "spiny aquatic thing".
  • They like to eat the nails, eyes, and teeth of their victims.
  • Ahuizotl was also the name of the emperor of the Mexica Empire before Moctezuma II.
