(Aztec Mortal) POPOCATEPETL

A young Aztec warrior who fell madly in love with the Emperors daughter Iztaccihautl.

Popocatepetl was called up for urgent enemy bashing business but there weren't really any enemies to bash. The emperor couldn't deal with his lovely daughter, Iztaccihautl, doing the two backed monster with a commmon soldier so he talked Popo' into giving up his days off with the promise of his daughters hand in marriage on his return, shipped him off to God knows where, and put his ploy in motion...

Emperor : 'So Izty... that young fellow you quite like.. i'm afraid he's dead. Yep, died in battle most horribly.'

Things didn't quite go to plan as Iztaccihuatl died of grief and young Popocatepetl was so upset when news filtered through that he died of grief himself. There was a lot of grief in Aztec times.

Fortunately the Gods had seen enough sadness for one day and were quite touched by the whole sorry episode so turned the doting pair into a couple of mountains, but the emperor got off scott free, which is a travesty, he deserved a nasty case of boils at the very least.
