South American mythology

CHIA

Muisca Evil Goddess

Also known as Chía

Evil Moon Goddess

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.
