Day 3: Tecpatl

| November 3, 2011 | 1 Comment

Tecpatl means, “Flint”. She is the spark that will light the way to your demise.

A warrior of Huitzilopochtli, she is covered in the feathers of fallen warriors. She fights without pause or mercy. She knows even if she falls, she returns as a hummingbird to fight in the name of her gods again.

Because she has nothing to lose, she cannot stop.

I like Aztec mythology very much. I’m not sure where the belief started, but Aztec warriors believed that hummingbirds were the souls of fallen soldiers. Sometimes I want it to be more bad butt than that, but maybe I just need to grow an appreciation for Hummingbirds.
