Itzpapalotl In Aztec mythology, Ītzpāpālōtl ("Obsidian Butterfly") was a fearsome skeletal warrior goddess who ruled over the paradise world of Tamoanchan, the paradise of victims of infant mortality and the place identified as where humans were created. She is the mother of Mixcoatl and is particularly associated with the moth "Rothschildia orizaba" from the family Saturniidae. Some of her associations are birds and fire. Her nagual was a deer.
Itzpapalotl Orizaba the Moth Fairy, a villain in "Elena of Avalor", was inspired by Itzpapalotl.
Itzpapalotl Itzpapalotl's name can either mean "obsidian butterfly" or "clawed butterfly"; the latter meaning seems most likely. It's quite possible that clawed butterfly refers to the bat and in some instances Itzpapalotl is depicted with bat wings. However, she can also appear with clear butterfly or eagle attributes. Her wings are obsidian or tecpatl (flint) knife tipped. (In the "Manuscript of 1558", Itzpapalotl is described as having "blossomed into the white flint, and they took the white and wrapped it in a bundle.") She could appear in the form of a beautiful, seductive woman or terrible goddess with a skeletal head and butterfly wings supplied with stone blades. Although the identity remains inconclusive, the Zapotec deity named Goddess 2J by Alfonso Caso and Ignacio Bernal may be a Classic Zapotec form of Itzpapalotl. In many instances Goddess 2J, whose image is found on ceramic urns, is identified with bats. "In folklore, bats are sometimes called "black butterflies"".
Itzpapalotl Itzpapalotl is the patron of the day and associated with the stars Cozcuauhtli and Trecena 1 House in the Aztec calendar. The Trecena 1 House is one of the five western trecena dates dedicated to the cihuateteo, or women who had died in childbirth. Not only was Itzpapalotl considered one of the cihuateteo herself, but she was also one of the tzitzimime, star demons that threatened to devour people during solar eclipses.
Itzpapalotl As the legend goes, Itzpapalotl fell from heaven along with Tzitzimime and several other shapes such as scorpions and toads. Itzpapalotl wore an invisible cloak so that no one could see her. At some times, she was said to have dressed up like a lady of the Mexican Court, caking her face with white powder and lining her cheeks with strips of rubber. Her fingers tapered into the claws of a jaguar, and her toes into eagle's claws.
Itzpapalotl According to the "Manuscript of 1558", section VII, Itzpapalotl was one of two divine 2-headed doe-deers (the other one being Chimalman) who temporarily transformed themselves into women in order to seduce men. Itzpapalotl approached the two "cloud serpents named Xiuhnel and Mimich ", who transformed themselves into men (so as to disguise themselves when all the others of the Centzonmimixcoa had been slain in the ambush?). To Xiuhnel, Itzpapalotl said ""Drink, Xiuhnel." Xiuhnel drank the blood and then immediately lay down with her. Suddenly she ... devoured him, tore open his breast. ... Then Mimich ... ran and ... descended into a thorny barrel cactus, fell into it, and the woman fell down after him."
List of Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter characters Unlike many other master vampires, Itzpapalotl cannot tell when someone is lying. Anita believes this is because Itzpapalotl is lying to herself, since she truly believes she is a god. Itzpapalotl gave Anita a taste of her own power in order to get the information she wanted and the power left Anita with eyes that were completely black. Eventually, Anita's eyes changed back, but abilities Anita gained from her exchange with Itzpapalotl have lingered on and are usually accompanied by the change in eye color.
List of Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter characters The Master of the City of Albuquerque and approximately one thousand years old, Itzpapalotl (translated as Obsidian Butterfly) is an Aztec vampire who believes herself to be the goddess Itzpapalotl. Due to her having killed any vampire or human servant that has wandered into the city for the last 50 years, the vampire council has forbidden entry into her territory. Anita is the only one who was not murdered, most likely because Itzpapalotl was intrigued by the triumvirate that Anita is a part of. Itzpapalotl exchanged the secret of manipulating certain forms of life energy for how the triumvirate was formed.
List of Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter characters One of the original Spanish conquerors of the Aztecs, Diego was one of twelve men who raped four priestesses five hundred years ago, and is still being punished by Itzpapalotl for it. Itzpapalotl made the twelve men into vampires and has exacted "justice" on them for as long as they had survived; Diego is one of the last three remaining. Diego was to show Anita how "a god feeds;" however, he refused to take the blood offering from an intimate place, and so he was beaten by the four priestesses, also turned vampiric by Itzpapalotl.
