Cuauhtémoc (c1495-1525) in an infantry hero in Age of Empires II HD: The Forgotten. He has the appearance of an Elite Eagle Warrior and is only available in the Scenario Editor. As a hero, he cannot be converted and can regenerate health.
It is implied that the Jaguar Warrior with buffed stats in the scenario La Noche Triste is Cuauhtémoc, marking the only time he personally appears in the gameplay of the Montezuma campaign. It should be noted that though this character speaks in dialogue (if not click-prompts) with Cuauhtémoc's voice, he is still only identified as "Jaguar Warrior", and it does not matter if he dies.
Cuauhtemoc was the Aztec ruler of Tenochtitlan from 1520 to 1521. He was a cousin of former emperor Montezuma II and married one of his daughters. Cuauhtemoc was eventually captured, tortured, and killed by the Spanish, led by Hernan Cortes.
