HUITACA
Also known as HUITACA-CHIBCH

Amoral but highly popular Goddess of Happiness, Pleasure and Drunkenness.

Delightfully feminine, she loves to indulge herself with drinking, dancing and making merry. When she came to town, it was always party time. No wonder she was so popular.

The ultra-righteous Top God BOCHICA was horrified at her antics and accused her of wanton behavior unbecoming a Goddess. His slurs stuck fast and the bad press damaged her reputation terribly. In fact to this day she's often considered a Goddess of Evil.

As punishment for simply having a good time, HUITACA was turned into an owl. But that doesn't stop her from grooving the night away, and long may she continue. It's not often you see a drunken owl.

It just shows the power of the press that she is now often identified (or else easily confused) with BOCHICA's wife CHIA — who really was evil. In that version of events, her husband NEMTEREQUETEBA acts as a BOCHICA clone. But we suggest you go for the originals — the names are shorter and the story is in better shape.
