(Aztec Deity)ITZPAPALOTL

Also known as FLINT CLAW BUTTERFLY, TONANTZIN, TZITZMITL
Tonalli : COZCACUAUHTLI (vulture)
Trecena : Calli (1 House - 13 Eagle)
Festival days : unknown

When she's not being the sexy gorgous ruler of the paradise realm known as Tamoanchan she's the Flint Claw Butterfly.

Itzpapalotl is also called the Obsidian butterfly maiden, but it makes no real difference. Forget the butterfly bit, both obsidian and flint are rather sharp and nasty and when they precede the word claw it can only be bad news. Her wings are tipped with stone blades too so she's pretty fearsome as far as skeletal Aztec warrior Goddesses go.

She was Queen of the Tzitzimime and the mother of Mixcoatl and apparently has a Zapotec equivalent known as Goddess 2j.

In a round-a-bout kind of way she was involved in the creation of Pulque after she ordered the crazed star demons to kill her grandaughter Mayahuel before she became all Godly. Her bits were gathered up and buried by her distraught husband Ehecatl, and the first Maguey plant grew from her rotting remains.
