Huitzilopochtli, whose name means "Blue Hummingbird on the Left," was the Aztec god of the Sun and the war. Huitzilopochtli, the Aztecs believed, battled the forces of darkness each night and was reborn each morning. As the Legend of the Five Suns shows, there was no guarantee that the sun would always win
Asleep for centuries, Huitzilopochtli was recently reawakened by a massive blood sacrifice enacted by the Scions on a great plain of waving grass when they slew the Aurelian Minotaur.
