#26 – Eztli Ortiz

| November 30, 2011 | 0 Comments


The Pleiatic Seers are a group of the seven most powerful and pure oracles in the world.  Once every thousand years seven seers are chosen to be part of the creation of a set of prophesies for the next one thousand years. The gathering is called the Prophesy of the Whole and is held on the summer solstice.  The ruling constellation of the ceremony is the Pleiades for mythological reasons (the original seers were the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades, hence the name Pleiatic Seers.)  The event is signaled by the birth of a child that contains all seven of the oracle powers – Sight, Touch, Smell, Head, Heart, Spirit-Light, and Blood, who is known as the Pleiona (the mother of the Pleiades in the myth) who is in charge of choosing and gathering all the seers together.  It can take years to find the right ones and then wait for the ages to align corrects – each seer must be a virgin woman between the ages of 7 and 49 (7 years apart each), with a single, specific, and powerful oracle ability.

Eztli, or Ezzi, is a descendent of the Royal House of Tezcatlipoca – a secret sorcerer’s clan that rose during the Toltec period and migrated to the most powerful nation at the time, which is how they ended up as Aztecs.  They were conquered by the Quetzalcoatl Clan, a sorcerer family that had flown from the country centuries before and had vowed to return and seek revenge.  They all used to be friends, but a drunken party led to a family feud that would destroy several nations.

Ezzi was raised knowing her family’s history and their long tradition as Blood Oracles.  Although many Sanguas are tempted by the darkness of their medium, she is grounded in the worlds of tradition, philosophy, history, and mythology.  She knows her path, her purpose, the dangers that lurk there, and is determined to uphold the family honor without reducing the truth of her powers to bad plot in a gory B-movie.

She is calm, level-headed, and very intelligent, as compassionate as she is wise.

One word to describe her: Grounded.
