Aztec Mythology

The bloodthirsty Gods of Ancient Mexico

CIVATATEO

Aztec Demonesses

Rather posh Aztec vampire ladies

Every culture has vampires, and the Aztecs are no exception. But these are the spirits of high-ranking females who’ve died during childbirth. Thanks to their upper-class station, they now have the privilege of serving the Gods. It’s always another rule for the rich, isn’t it?

The Civatateo lurk in temples or lie in wait at crossroads, and are ghastly to behold. If you see a shriveled white creature in the dead of night, it won’t be long before you’re dead too.

Could these be Cihuateteo on a bad day?
