VISDEV-2872 readriordan zane.1200 Not part of Riordanverse

The following article/section is from the Storm Runner continuity under Rick Riordan Presents and not the Riordanverse canon.

Camazotz is the Mayan god of bats.


Camazotz lived in the Bat House of Xib’alb’a with his bats. Hero twins, Jun'ajpu' and Xb'alamkej, were placed in the house as part of their test by the lords of the underworld. The two were to spend the entire night there, but they had squeezed themselves into their own blowguns in order to defend themselves from the circling bats. However, when Jun'ajpu' briefly peeked out to see if the sun came up, Camazotz cut his head off and carried it to the ball court. It was used in the next ball game, Xb'alamkej replaced his brother's head with a gourd and won back his real head in the game.[2]

Storm Runner Trilogy

The Fire Keeper

He sends a colony of bats to abduct Ren Santiago, once in Texas and again in Cabo San Lucas.

About a day later, he sleeps while watching over the captive godborns, oblivious to their escape until Marco wakes him up by throwing a hammer at him. After Ah-Puch joins him, they explain how the twins will use Hurakan and the god borne to resurrect the Mexica Gods and creative a world order with themselves on top. After a fight breaks out, Ah-Puch betrays him and stabs him in the chest before creating a gateway the bat god kills him. As Zane Obispo rushes to the death god’s side, he grabs Ren Santiago and plans to sacrifice her after discovering she has both Mayan and Mexica blood. After Ah-Puch regains his full power and threatens him to release Ren, Zane burns his eyes out with a fire ball and he smells out his opponents as Ah-Puch frees Ren.


Camazotz was at least ten feet tall, he had claws, rubber wings, and a swollen body. His head was humanish but his face had a creepy masklike look, his grayish skin pulled too tight like an overcooked chicken. Zane thought he looked more repulsive then demon runners.


Camazotz is a cruel deity who enjoys killing others. He likes quoting Batman and sounding like Christian Bale from the Trilogy. 


  • Flight: With his wings, Camazotz is a strong flyer.


  • The name "Camazotz" means "death bat" in the Kʼicheʼ language.
  • Zotz is also a month in the Haab' Calender. During Zotz, bee keepers fasted to prepare for upcoming activities.[3]
