"'Not a hearing—nobody knows—I alone have the secret—that’s why I and Quetzalcoatl and Huitzilopotchli will rule the world alone—I and they, if I choose to let them. . . . But I must have experimental subjects—subjects—do you know whom I’ve chosen for the first?”'
H.P. Lovecraft & Adolphe de Castro, The Electric Executioner

"Huitzilopochtli was the supreme deity of the Aztecs, their chief cult god."

"In some sources he is also identified as the Blue Tezcatlipoca."

"The Spaniards called him Huichilobos and saw him as the devil incarnate, the cause of heart sacrifice, the source of perversion in the New World." "According to most accounts and to an early post-Conquest illustration, he wore on his head a blue-green hummingbird headdress, a golden tiara, white heron feathers, and the smoking mirror more commonly associated with Tezcatlipoca and probably adopted from him." "His face often bears yellow and blue striped paint, and a black mask dotted with stars surrounds the eyes. Frequently adorned with paper banners....he usually carries Xiuhcoatl or fire serpent."
Mary Miller and Karl Taube, An Illustrated Dictionary Of the Gods and Symbols Of Ancient Mexico and the Maya
