Kotz is the tribal elder and leader of the Jaguar people, the uncontacted tribe that rescues Adam, Justin and Kim when their plane crash lands in the Mexican jungle.
Kotz is aware of the outside world and does all he can to shield his people from the dangers of contact with modern society. He is wise, and tries to help the kids
find the Third Stone of Power. Kotz is also a shaman of the tribe, and one of the 'ah k'in' or day keepers, the keepers of the history of the Mayan people. He can
also interpret dreams and omens.
"Perhaps one day there will be no more jungle and no more animals and birds."
