TEZCATLIPOCAAlso known as OMACATL, TEZCALIPOCA, TITLACAUAN
All-important God specializing in Night, Death and Temptation.He carries a smoking mirror which bewilders enemies and confuses the issues but is happiest when leading people down the garden path to evil.
Despite being a nasty piece of work, and a rival of his brother QUETZALCOATL, he's a handsome chap who once seduced the beautiful XOCHIQUETZAL. But he's a real whiz at shape-changing (often turning into MIXCOATL) and appears most often as a jaguar. If you are into worshipping jaguars, best stick with the E-type.
