Esteban Ruiz, also known as Camazotz, is a minor antagonist in the 2019 horror action superhero film Hellboy. He is a B.P.R.D. agent known as Esteban Ruiz who was once a childhood friend of Hellboy and was sent to investigate a vampiric disturbance, but however became a vampire known as Camazotz.
He was portrayed by Mario de la Rosa.
Esteban Ruiz was an old childhood friend of Hellboy since they once played music together. When they grew older, they both joined the B.P.R.D agency, which hunts monsters and demons.
Years later, Esteban was sent to Tijuana to investigate a vampire sighting. He had not been heard of since. Hellboy was sent to retrieve him and found that he had been fighting in a wrestling ring as "Camazotz".
Esteban challenges Hellboy to a ring fight. Esteban holds his own until Hellboy gets him into a headlock and unmasks him, sending all the patrons running. Esteban fully transforms into a vampiric bat-like monster and attacks Hellboy and the referee, who uses a crucifix to injure him. Esteban flies towards Hellboy, who accidentally tosses him onto the pole of the ring and impales him. As Esteban transforms back into his human form, he warns Hellboy that the end is coming and calls him by his true real name Anung Un Rama before he dies from his wounds.
