(Aztec Mortal)CIPACTONAL

The first human bloke, married to Oxomoco. They created Calendars and witchcraft, and also Piltzintecuhtli.

If you were expecting Cipactonal to bear a striking resemblance to Cipactli you'll be surprised to find out he isn't at all crocodile-like. That said, he is a bit of a sorcerer so anything is possible.

Having watched Quetzalcoatl struggle for an eternity trying to lassoo an entire mountain full of corn and drag it to the starving humans, Cipactonal and his missus came up with an embarresingly simple and less strenuous solution.

"why don't you" they said, "get Nanahuatl to split the mountain with his stick, then the Tlaloques can carry individual grains back to mankind?"

This was a stroke of genius, infinately less back-breaking, and the whole system worked like a dream.

Aswell as grains of sustenance the Tlaloques also carried back Amaranth - which sounded like a high alcohol tipple - but sadly turned out to be a leafy plant full of iron, fibre and calcium. I bet the humans were so disapointed.
