Kukul was one of the two elder deities in the Maztican pantheon, and was considered the father of the gods.[1]


Kukul was the husband of the goddess Maztica. With her he was the father of the gods Qotal, Zaltec, Azul, Tezca, and Plutoq, and the goddesses Kiltzi, Watil, and Nula. Later, after his children repeatedly failed to make people, he made the first humans by cutting off some of his fingers, which fell to the ground and became humans. After Zaltec assaulted Maztica, he fell into despair and later vanished*.[2]


Kukul did not have any priests, and did not grant any spells. He was mostly worshiped by sages and scholars as a god of knowledge and stars.[1]
