He was renowned as being Deep in Wisdom. [1a]

History

When the Pyramid Temple of the Sun was being renewed, Lord Zhul was moved to the Pyramid of the Northern Constellation which had not been used for two hundred and fifty years. Shortly after being moved, Lord Zhul began to give out contradictory orders, apparently unaware of his previous instructions and grew more and more angry with his servants.[1a]

Overseers were at first dismissed and later even executed - finally one was ordered to be sacrifced to Sotek but as this would not acceptable to the god, this was not done. [1a] His servants became split into two factions - some under the elder Copaquetl followed the instructions whatever they might be, but others under Anqipanqi thought something was affecting their lord. Finally he and his fellow Skink scribes consulted with Lord Tenoq who, with the other Mage-Priests of the city were away restoring Huatl. [1b]

It was determined that not only could Tenoq not speak telepathically to Zhul but that the Lord became confused and irritated when his palanquin was facing the ruins of Tlencan. A expedition to investigate was sent, made up of the first cohrot of green-backed Skinks and led by Quzipantuti.[1b]

There he discovered that the sacred chamber was inhabited by a Xlanax (perhaps a Daemon), transfixed by a elven blade. The skinks withdrew to the alter of Sotek and called upon the snake god for assistance against the entity. An aspect of Sotek manifested and devoured the Xlanax. At the same time Zhul also died, having finally won his battle with the malign entity but ascended to become a revered one. The lords remains were ceremonially bedecked in gold and prepared with resin and set to rest. [1b]
