In Aztec mythology, Mictecacihuatl was the Queen of Mictlan, the underworld, and wife of Mictlantecuhtli. Her purpose is to keep watch over the bones of the dead. She presides over the festivals of the dead (which evolved into the modern Day of the Dead) and is known as the Lady of the Dead, since it is believed she died at birth.Her cult is sometimes held to persist in the common Mexican worship of Santa Muerte.

Pazuzu

Pazuzu Cover
I'd make a joke about Pazuzu's petals, but you young'uns would probably miss it. Make sure you watch A Wonderful Life to get it. Anyhow long before he became famous in The Exorcist this dude really existed. His statues tended to be a bit more fierce though.

He is the god, some say demon of the southwest wind. He brings famine or locusts as it pleases him, to destroy crops. Oddly enough even though he is seen as evil, he will attack any evil entity that harms a person under his care.

Which helps us dig up his real story. He really was and is a god who loved and loves humans. He so despises the demonessLamashtu, who steals babies that he pressed her back into the underworld. So yes, he'd be a super child protector as he loves kids. That his fierce winds can destroy crops is true, but then most gods have a darker side that favors destruction. Plus, blaming nature on the gods and not thinking ahead seems to be the norm for humans.

In appearance he is partly human with double wings, a dog's head, and taloned eagle's feet, all finished off with a scorpion's tail. He also has scales and in place of a real member, a snake-headed one. Many ancient women wore his amulet to protect their unborn babies and hung charms of him around the house so the children would be safe.
