Hoxitl was the high priest of Zaltec in Nexal.[1][page needed]


Hoxitl was the leader of the Zaltec's faith in all Maztica.[1] Hoxitl was the most powerful advisor of Naltecona but also the secret leader of the Viperands Cult.[2] In 1361 DR, under orders of the Ancient Ones he ordered to all his priests to find the young girl Erixitl.[1]

With the arrive of the Golden Legion in Nexal Hoxitl conspired with the Ancients Ones in order to have Naltecona death and the Viperhands cult in control of the empire. Also Hoxitl continued the hunt of Erixitl, gathering also the reluctant help of Shatil, brother of Erix and priest of Zaltec. The vengeance of Lolth against the Ancient Ones, in truth a group of drow, ruined his plans and during the Night of Wailing he was transformed in a troll.[2] Despite his mutation Hoxitl remained a servant of Zaltec, but a reluctant one, and unlashed the Viperhands monster upon the human survivors. In time the mutation started afflict also his mind and Hoxitl became more and more bestial. He led the Viperhands armies in the Second Battle of Ulatos until with the banishment of the avatar of Zaltec all the monsters lost treir will of battle and retreated to Nexal.[3] As of 1362 DR Hoxitl still ruled the ruin of Nexal.[4]
