Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series[]

Season Two[]

In Santa Sangre, Ximena makes herself known to Freddie Gonzalez and explains to him that her female lord wants Richard Gecko on the throne and also reveals to Freddie that she had a human lover who was killed by a bull. Ximena tells him to put the right Gecko brother on the throne.

Season Three[]

In Head Games, she is seen beside Venganza most of the time and gets her to safety so the Lords' secrets can be kept underwraps.

In La Reina, she and Freddie are down in Waco investigating a rash of culebra nests being immolated. After they talk with a homeless culebra, they go a nest that is charred, but find a survivor who tells them about a man. They also head to a Lodge where they have a brief confrontation with Brasa, the man Araseli told them about.

In Protect and Serve, she reveals to the Geckos about the origins of the Lords after being insisted by Burt, who also happens to be her former lover centuries ago.

In Shady Glen, she and the group head to a neighborhood called Shady Glen to deal with Xibalban myots and the Cipactli.

In Straitjacket, after Richie is kidnapped by Amaru, Ximena and the others go to Nicotero State Hospital to rescue him. It is also revealed that she and Freddie are lovers, but she tells him she doesn't want to get in the way of his relationship with his family. She and Freddie convince Pablo, a former patient, to help them get out of the place. Unfortunately, while Freddie is being controlled by Richie, he stakes her and she dies, but not before she tells him she loves him.

Physical Appearance[]

Ximena has a slim but athletic build and wears elegant clothing. She has long dark, brown hair that she usually has in a bun or a ponytail and dark brown eyes.


Ximena is a down to business kind of woman and partially blames the disorder of the culebras on Freddie. She, however, is shown to associate with humans as she had a human lover who was a bullfighter and also because she doesn't want the balance to be turned upside down.

Powers and Abilities[]

  • Immortality- Culebras do not age or decay and are immune to death by disease or sickness.
  • Accelerated Healing- Culebras heal from physical wounds much faster than humans. In addition, chronic illnesses, such as poor vision, are immediately corrected. For example, Richie was shot in the hand and had a large hole that caused him immense pain if too much pressure was applied to it. Upon transformation, the large wound healed rapidly and his vision was heightened, no longer requiring him to wear glasses.
  • Superhuman Strength- Ximena has more strength than a regular human.
  • Shapeshifting- Ximena can shape-shift into a reptilian form that is far stronger and more feral than their human form. It causes them to mentally degenerate into mindless animals that can be killed easier as they are not as smart in a fight and are more blood crazed, though when partially transformed, they are simply more aggressive and can speak, while other are more like hungry zombies and even hunt in hoards or packs. They either have flaked or scaly skin with sometimes hardened scales and horns.


  • Sunlight- Culebras are vulnerable to the sunlight and will die of exposure to it.
  • Staked- Culebras are vulnerable to stakes to the heart, as it will usually kill them.
  • Extraction- Ximena is vulnerable to heart extraction.
  • Decapitation- Culebras are vulnerable to decapitation, but like snakes, they have been shown to still have movement.
