EK-CHUAHAlso known as EKCHUAH, EK-CHUUAH, GOD-M
Choccie God of Merchants and Selling
Also one of the ALPHABET-GODS known as God M. M is for Merchants.EK-CHUAH started off as a God of Conflict, which could explain a lot about door-to-door vendors and telesales tactics. He has black-rimmed eyes and a large droopy lip... or is it a nose? That would explain why his name sounds like a sneeze. EK-CHUAH! Either way, he has a real nose for business.
He is usually depicted as a dark brown or black deity, appropriately enough as he's the Patron of the Cacao Bean. Yes, EK-CHUAH is a God of Chocolate. Those delicious dark beans were once used as currency.
