(Aztec Deity)COYOLXAUHQUI

Also known as COYOLXANUHQUI

Golden bells Goddess of the moon, the eldest daughter of the virgin Goddess Coatlicue and leader of the Centzon Huitnahaus.

No one stopped to think how mom could possibly still be a virgin after giving birth to 400+ Southern Star Gods and others besides, but being interfered with by an inanimate object caused more shame than Coyolxauhqui could take. Rallying her siblings she kicked up a holy stink of disaproval. Damn those Quetzal feathers.

Unfortunately for them a fully grown, fully armed, and fully furious Huitzilopochtli sprang from Coatlicue's womb and came over all protective-like. Limbs went flying and hearts were eaten as the Fire Serpant wreaked havoc. It was a blood bath.

Singled out for extra special treatment as catalyst of the whole outrage, Coyolxauhqui had her head torn off and thrown into the sky where she became the moon Goddess, but no-one seems to know where the bells came from.
