Max Winters/Yaotl

Voiced by: Patrick Stewart

  • The Atoner: His quest for immortality led to his generals, who were also his family, becoming stone statues and unleashed a batch of horrific monsters on the world.

  • Badass Family: With the Stone Generals.
  • Big Bad: Subverted. Most of the film sets him up to be this, but his true motivations and plans are eventually revealed to be good. It's subtly implied that he may have been a true villain during the events 3,000 years ago that led to him gaining immortality, but later pulled a Heel–Face Turn due to the centuries of living with guilt and regret over the fate of his generals and being responsible for releasing the 13 monsters into the world.
  • Disappears into Light: After the Stone Generals are defeated and the curse is lifted.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: In the film's prologue, he is fully dressed in armor as Yaotl. However, while he is wearing his armor again in the present day, Max just puts his helmet aside and doesn't wear it for the final fight. In fact, it's the only thing that doesn't disintegrate with him.
