(Aztec Demon)TLALTECUHTLI

Fat ugly toad demoness who claims to be queen of the earth.

Whilst plotting the creation of the new world, Tezcatlipoca and Quetzalcoatl clapped eyes on Tlaltecuhtli and were horrified. They had to get rid of her so they decided to kill two birds with one stone. Taking the form of serpents the creator Gods ripped her in half, then used one bit to form the earth and slung the other bit into the sky to form the heavens.

Obviously this made Tlaltecuhtli slightly irate even though they decorated her earthly half with pretty shrubs and forna.

She now demands a constant supply of human flesh to feed the many mouths that her entire body is covered with, and while this may sound a little greedy at least while she's chewing she isn't whining about her great sacrifice for the good of mankind.
