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 Chibchacum.

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 Chibchacum, but the rumor mill has long since closed down.
