Mayan Desire God

Also known as GOD-N

Sexy Snail God of Misfortune

Also known as God N. N is for Not Lucky. One of the PAUAHTUN, he is the God of Five Unlucky Days. When they are or how often they occur is not clear. Once a year would be tolerable but every week would be a bit over the top.

He may also be the first God to wear a shell suit, as a snail shell seems to be his principle abode. We know snail shells are also capable of containing much holiness.

UAYEB is also often portrayed as a drunken sex-maniac. There’s obviously quite a lot we don’t know about him. To be honest, we are reluctant to learn more.
