Aztec Love God

Also known as XOCHIPILLI

Aztec Peacenik God of Love and Niceness

He’s red and skinless but quite nice with it. Being something of an Aztec hippy, he goes for flowers, singing and dancing, as well as guarding the souls of dead warriors who turn into humming birds. Cute.

His sister is the Love Goddess XOCHIQUETZAL and he’s very lovey-dovey himself. He carries a pointy stick and likes to poke it around. If the tip penetrates your heart you’ll fall in love. You get the point.
