(Aztec Deity) ACOLNAHUACATL

Also known as ACOLMIZTLI, ACOLNAHUACATZIN, ACULNAHUACATL, CUEZALLI, TORQUEMADA II

God of the Aztec underworld often referred to as 'Cuezalli' which roughly translates as the flaming thing.

This spangly alias makes him sound pretty impressive and he was important enough to have his own temple called Tlalxicco which was named after his crib in the underworld. But as per usual with these Aztec death God types digging for info on where he fits in the underworld scheme of things has revealed ... absolutely nothing.

Acolnahuacatl was also known as Torquemada II, a name shared by the first grand Spanish inquisitor reknowned for his religious bigotry and cruel fanaticism, which is probably just a coincidence. Or is it?
