(Aztec Deity)CENTZON TOTOCHTIN

Also known as DIVINE RABBITS, THE FOUR HUNDRED DRUNKEN GODS

When people talk about terribly drunken states they often mention parrots or newts but neither can hold a light to Centzon Totochtin - the infinite drunken rabbits.

These were the four hundred Gods in charge of booze-ups, each representing a different level of intoxicated state, and were renowned in Aztec times for their legendary shin-digs.

As you can imagine, with so much Pulque being quaffed details are a little hazy. The only certainty is that, for whatever reason, each member was known as 'rabbit' and given a numerical prefix.

Members of note include Macuiltochtli and Tepozlecatl, and Ometotchtli - known as 'two rabbit' is generally regarded as supreme God of the party, if for no other reason than a 'one rabbit' has never been mentioned... ever.

This could easily be a drunken oversight but it also calls into question how many of them there actually were, and the Aztec's habit of using the number '400' to describe anything that was inumerable does little to clarify things.

I would like to think they ran a nominated deity system whereby one of them had to stay in control of their senses to get the others home safely, but the chances are slim.
