Juan Meroz, also known as El Tigre, was a hunter of ancient treasures. Escorted by two mercenaries, Ramon and Tuloc, he eventually found the Mayan pyramid of the god Kukulcan in Santo Rico. They soon found a treasure, and Meroz took a shining stone from it. During the night, Ramon and Tuloc tried to capture Meroz, but he was warned by a "new" sixth sense about their intentions. Using a telekinetic power he never had before, he bound Ramon and Tuloc and had them promise to obey to his orders. Later, during the night, El Tigre learned the history of the stone. It was part of a magic amulet extracted from an enchanted stone: the Sacred Pendant of Kukulcan. El Tigre's mental powers were derived from that fragment of the amulet, when he found the second half of the amulet and joined the parts he was now Kukulcan.
