The Four Goddesses of Dioses

The Four Goddesses of Dioses

Listed below are my characters in Dioses, the following being some of the goddesses found in the manga. Each goddess is unique and bear in mind that these goddesses are of my own version. So, there, enjoy reading! 🙂

ATLATONAN : There are confusions regarding her domain. Some say she is the Aztec goddess of lepers and those who are born with physical deformities. On some accounts, an Earth goddess or goddess of the coast. She is also known as Atlatonin. She is also one of the four wives of the Jaguar-god Tezcatlipoca.

BASTETThe Egyptian Cat goddess. There are also confusions, though. On some accounts, it is said that she is the one sent by Ra to destroy the mankind. The humans, at that time, are all wicked and cursed Ra’s great name. So, the council of the gods, with Ra, decided to destroy them and thus Bastet was sent to slay them. That’s one version, come say the goddess Hathor did it. She is also called Bast. She is the goddess of music, dancing, pleasure  and merry-making.

FRIGG : The queen-wife of Odin, king of the Norse gods. She is the goddess of marriage, also of love (though some accounts say that Freya is the goddess of Love) . She is seen as the goddess who weaves the clouds. She also has the capability to see the future but told no one about what she sees. She has lots of attendants, the most popular is Fulla. When Balder is terrified by his nightmares, it is his mother, Frigg, who extracted the oaths from all the living and non-living things not to hurt Balder. But this failed because Balder is killed by a tiny twig of mistletoe. By the way, Friday is named after her.

HERA :  The queen of the gods, she is Zeus’ wife. She is also the goddess of marriage. Their union produced Ares, god of war, Hebe, goddess of youth and cupbearer of the gods, and Eileithyia, goddess of childbirth. She bore Hephaestus alone. Some of the popular stories about her is her jealousy and anger towards her husbands’s women. Her sacred animal is the peacock, whose eyes once belong to Argos, her faithful follower whom Hermes killed.

Tezcatlipoca and Xilonen

Xilonen and Tezcatlipoca
my version of  Xilonen and Tezcatlipoca

Tezcatlipoca  was known as the Aztec god of the night sky and sorcery. Among the four major Aztec gods, he was considered as the most handsome and perpetually young. His name could be translated as the “Smoking Mirror” and also a protector of the slaves, patron of warriors.

He was also known to have four wives. They were Atlatonan, Huixtocihuatl, Xilonen and Xochiquetzal. Atlatonan was known as the goddess of the lepers and of borne with physical deformities. Huixtocihuatl, on the other hand, was the goddess of salt and salt water. She was also one of Tlaloc‘s sisters. Xilonen, whose name could be translated to “hairy one”, was the goddess of the corn. She was also known as Tezcatlipoca’s favored wife. Last would be Xochiquetzal, known as the goddess of love, beauty and flowers.

Each of these divinities had their own festivals, and in this festival, human sacrifice was very common. Human sacrifice, the Aztecs believed, would make their gods happy and nourished.

 

 

*bear in mind that some of these info may not be the same as the others on the net. On some instances, for example, for Atlatonan, in some accounts she was regarded as an earth goddess. For clarifications or info don’t hesitate to share it! 😀

Ode to Tezcatlipoca

Tezcatlipoca

Image via Wikipedia

“In the land of the sun, eagle and moon,

a strong tribe was destined to live soon.

To their warriors, fear was unknown,

killing and sacrificing was what they’d known.

The warriors were ruled by the gods,

they lived in harmony before they met the odds.

In the darkness, one of them embraces,

leaving the others in chaos until calamity arises.

The just and noble warrior was chosen for this quest,

but his brother, cunning and brave, could not resist the test.

This brother of his, with a mammoth strength yet with a sloth’s mind,

decided to join in without telling their kind…

Now, he is mortal and his soul, sold.

Tezcatlipoca was what he’s called.”

As we passed Wei’s noodle shop, we saw Tetsuo Harumaki carrying large trays of vegetables. We took the opportunity to bombard this young man who is the vessel of Tezcatlipoca, the Warrior god of the Aztecs and here are the results of our interview.

I AM Tetsuo Harumaki

PEOPLE WILL EASILY RECOGNIZE ME BECAUSE I eat a lot.

I THINK PEOPLE LIKE ME BECAUSE I’m a nice person

ATTITUDE PROBLEM? PEOPLE THINK THAT I’M nice and good.

I REALLY HATE IT WHEN there’s no food in the fridge.

DURING MY FREE TIME, I TEND TO sleep in the rooftop.

I WOULD LOVE TO WASTE MY TIME sleeping and helping Lu Hsien with his chores.

I AM EASILY UPSET WHEN someone hurt my friends.

I LIKE PEOPLE WHO are like my friends Lu Hsien, Kazuya and Lee Gyul.

WOMEN? I like someone whose brave and loving. Who knows what she wants and If she cannot have it, she’ll take it by force.

INTERVIEW:

HOW DID YOU FOUND OUT ABOUT TEZCATLIPOCA?
He’s always mad at me. I thought first he is the soul of my ancestors and he was angry because I’m weak.  I want us to be friends.

ARE YOU COMFORTABLE WITH TEZCATLIPOCA LIVING INSIDE YOU?
Yes! very much. But I think he’s not comfortable with me.

DID YOU FIND TEZCATLIPOCA AMUSING?
Yes because he’s so strong, so wise and he knows a lot. He’s my idol.

DID TEZCATLIPOCA ANNOY YOU?
No, I like him so much. But he always says that I’m so annoying.

… IF TEZCATLIPOCA WILL ASK YOU TO CHOOSE ANYTHING THAT HE HAD, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
I want to have a strand of his hair. I want to have something to remember him by.

DID YOU EVER THINK THAT ONE DAY TEZCATLIPOCA WILL LEAVE YOU?
No! I can’t! I’m not ready yet! He promised me we’ll be friends after the battle so he cannot leave me because were not yet friends.

IF YOU WILL BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN ZEUS, RA AND ODIN TO LIVE WITH YOU INSTEAD OF TEZCATLIPOCA, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
No, I don’t want to replace him, Even though he is always angry with me.

ANY MESSAGE FOR TEZCATLIPOCA?
I want us to be friends, I will do anything for you to like me, Oh great and noble one. (He wants me to call him like that)

ANY MESSAGE FOR LU HSIEN, TETSUO AND LEE GYUL?
I love you my dear friends (Sniff! Sniff!)
