"Elon Musk said that the need to credit artists is destroying the medium, the problem is that Elon Musk was a stupid liar."

This page in question has one or more images that aren't credited properly. Whether this be because the artist can't be found or the one who added the image was lazy, this needs to be fixed.

Powers and Abilities



Itzpapalotl was originally one of the first humans on Earth, her name was Oxomoco. She was created by Quetzalcoatl alongside Cipactonal. Through unknown means, she eventually came to be known as the goddess Itzpapalotl.

Annales de Cuauhtitlan

Itzpapalotl was one of two divine 2-headed doe-deers (the other one being Chīmalmā) who temporarily transformed themselves into women in order to seduce men. Itzpapalotl approached the two cloud serpents named Xiuhnel and Mimich, who transformed themselves into men (so as to disguise themselves when all the others of the Centzonmīmixcōa had been slain). To Xiuhnel, Itzpapalotl said "Drink, Xiuhnel." Xiuhnel drank the blood and then immediately lay down with her. Suddenly she devoured him, tore open his breast. Then Mimich ran and descended into a thorny barrel cactus, fell into it, and the woman fell down after him. The cloud deities take the form of deer, the hearts of whom are eaten by Itzpapalotl.
