The Aztec Goddess of the sacrificial flint knife, Her name means 'Obsidian Butterfly' or 'Clawed Butterfly', which may be a poetic name for the bat. She is also the leader of the tzitzimime or star Goddesses, and one of the cihuateteo, or women who died in childbirth. She rules Tamoanchan, the paradise from where humans originated.
