"Their anger appears violent. They clash with motions similar to those one observes when they attack large animals or men, and it is these same battles that have taught me that they were not actually immortal, as I was initially inclined to believe, because two or three times I saw Xipéhuz succumb in these encounters, which is to say they collapsed, contracted, and petrified. I carefully preserved some of these strange corpses, and perhaps they may later be used to discover the nature of Xipéhuz. They are yellowish crystals, irregularly arranged, and streaked with blue lines."
