Tlotoxl (in Azteca, Tlohtoxcatl) was an Aztec High Priest of Sacrifice in the 15th century.

When Barbara posed as the reincarnation of Yetaxa and called off the human sacrifice of the first victim, Tlotoxl declared her a false god and tried poisoning her to prove her mortality. However, his plan failed when Barbara offered them the drink. At the solar eclipse, Tlotoxl tried stabbing Barbara, but Ian Chesterton caught him. Ian and Barbara left for the TARDIS, and Tlotoxl was offered the Perfect Victim as a sacrifice. (TV: The Aztecs)

Twenty years later, Tlohtoxcatl still held the role of High Priest. Momacani described him as appearing totally caked in soot and grime, smelling of body odour and faecal matter. However, despite his severity, Tlohtoxcatl was popularly perceived as a good man with a strong heart. (PROSE: Against Nature)

Behind the scenes Edit
