Tzitzimime Cover
In Mexica mythology the Tzitzimime were once stars but were cast out to become lords of the dark underworld, and were a danger both at night and especially during an eclipse. Each dawn and dusk they would battle the sun. The end of the Azteca fifty-two year cycle a time of even greater anxiety for if the new fire was not successfully drilled, the terrifying Tzitzimime star demons would reassert their control over the world. It was prophesized that these star demons would descend to earth and devour the few humans who survived the destruction of the Mexica world and universe when it ended in earthquake and famine.
