Mayan Alcohol God

God of Wine and Intoxicating Beverages

ACAN is a very boisterous God who loves to make a fool of himself while under the influence. His name means ‘groan’ and by all accounts he does a lot of groaning — particularly during the morning after.

Unconfirmed reports claim that he’s best friends with CACOCH. Drinking buddies?
