Biography – General Aguila

General Aguila is an ancient stone general who first appeared in the movie TMNT as one of the film’s main antagonists and the leader of the stone generals. He, along with his three brothers and sister, led a massive army to conquer the world in ancient times. To help accomplish this end, Aguila’s brother Yaotl opened a dimensional portal using a wheel-like artifact and an annual alignment of nine stars, releasing thirteen monsters into the world. The monsters decimated his army and their current opponents, a Central American civilization. In addition, opening the portal turned Aguila and three of his siblings into stone, and left Yaotl a flesh and blood immortal.

Centuries later, he and his stone siblings are awoken by Yaotl (now under the name, Max Winters) to help collect all 13 monsters and return them to the portal, thus, undoing their curse. However, liking their new immortality, Aguila leads a mutiny against Winters to preserve their immortality, and bring forth more monsters to assemble an army to conquer Earth. During a fight between the turtles and the stone generals,General Aguila engaged Leonardo in combat. The turtles defeated the generals and kicked them into the portal. The stone generals emerged from the portal and Aguila told the turtles they would never be stopped unless they returned the thirteenth monster. The thirteenth monster then barged into the chamber and slammed the stone generals and itself into the portal. Aguila and the other stone generals were destroyed in the process, apparently breaking the curse.

He was voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson.
