Miguel is one of the two protagonists of The Road to El Dorado. He is voiced by British/Northern Irish actor, Kenneth Branagh.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit

Physical AppearanceEdit

Miguel is of average height, broad shouldered, and handsome, with shoulder-length, golden-blonde hair and olive green eyes. He has a muscular and toned body. He has a beard that is several shades darker than his blonde hair. His outfit consists of his iconic red loose tunic and khaki pants.


Miguel is free-spirited, fun-loving and adventurous, and although he is initially interested in getting gold from El Dorado, he becomes more interested in exploring the city itself, a contrasting personality trait to Tulio.

Miguel is a person with a strong sense of justice, but also an empathetic soul – as seen when he tries to save the citizens of El Dorado by banishing Tzekal-Kan. He is loyal to his friends and is willing to go to great lengths to help and protect them.

Although Miguel sometimes tends to come off as slightly dim-witted and fantasy-oriented, he often expands on Tulio's plans and even comes up with his own - such as when he got himself and Tulio off the brig.

Miguel is a bit more sensitive and playful than Tulio. He plays the lute, enjoys entertaining, cares for others and is able to see the beauty and potential of the world around him. For example, Miguel has no problem standing up against Tzekel-Khan and ordering him to stop sacrificing the locals. He can, however, seem a bit over-confident, which often gets him into trouble. Although he and Tulio aren't particularly brave, they aren't exactly cowardly either. Even though he can be much more outgoing than the quieter Tulio, they are extremely close friends and place a lot of value in their friendship.
