The Shaman was a character who first appeared in the first episode of the first season. He was a witch that had used a spell that turned Santánico into the monster she is in the present times.


c. 900sEdit

Before he turns Santánico into a culebra, he had offered human sacrifices in the temple to her and also to appease the Mesoamerican gods.

He had cast a spell on Santánico and she became a culebra soon afterwards.

Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn: The SeriesEdit

Season OneEdit

He is seen in a flashback when Santánico is running through the jungle and she runs into him. He then casts a spell and all the snakes begin slithering and biting her, until one comes out of a hole and goes into her mouth.

He is seen briefly in the temple when he kills a boy in front of Santánico, with his blood splattering on her.

Physical AppearanceEdit

The Shaman had an athletic build and had a tall frame. He wore a headpiece that priests and shamans wore back in Mesoamerican times. He is wearing a large necklace with bones and teeth and has two earrings. He is seen wearing face paint that hints of a blueish-white hue.


Not much is shown about his personality, but it seems he seems to show some intimidation, especially towards Santánico.




  • He is the only shaman or witch seen in the franchise.
