Go To

  • Awesome Music: The main theme is pretty cool.
  • Complete Monster: Pusca, in the past, was the High Priest of El Dorado who was banished for betraying the country to the French. Pusca spent 500 years absorbing the energy of travelers to stay young while waiting for the prophesied outsider to collect the artifacts placed in the temples. When an adventurer named Kevin McCallister showed up, Pusca thought he was the one. However, when Pusca found out he wasn't, he drained the energy from him. In the present, Pusca teams up with Jonathon St. Claire, who he again thinks is the one from the prophecy. When St. Claire gets the artifacts from Harry, Pusca demands to have them, and when St. Claire refuses, Pusca kills him. Pusca had been lying to Kevin's daughter Nicole about wanting to help bring back her father, which he uses to steal the artifacts back from Harry. Pusca then kills Nicole when she is no longer of use to him and begins his final plan to make sure the French destroy El Dorado.

Harry's voice actor, Steve Blum, would voice the Electrocutioner with the magical power of the Shock Gloves in Batman: Arkham Origins.
  • Tear Jerker: A penguin crying after you've destroyed its egg.
