Aztec Mythology

The bloodthirsty Gods of Ancient Mexico

PATECATL

Aztec Healer God

God of Medicine

With the aid of his wife Mayahuel, he pepped up Pulque by adding certain roots to the maguey cactus mixture under the illusion that it was amazingly beneficial ‘Pulque Physic’.

This illusion was actually caused by the narcotic hallucinations on top of the alcohol. The only antidote is to choose your Gods more carefully.

And no, we don’t have the recipe. But we’re working on it.
