Wife of BOCHICA.
Identified with HUITACA, the drunken Goddess of Bad Behavior, she is believed to have caused a number of floods — possibly in association with CHIBCHACHUM.
As punishment for her crimes against humanity, she was transformed into the Moon. Or — if you prefer a different version of the legend — an owl. Or possibly the owl in the moon, or an owl that moons.
She was known to be on friendly terms with CHIBCHACHUM, but the rumor mill has long since closed down.
