Tlanziah the goddess of War and Chaos
By: Aleisha Hall
Tlanziah, the goddess of War and Chaos is feared by her people. She has hair as black as night and a shirt made of darkness. She has brown whirlpool eyes, showing how she can warp the earth right from under people’s feet. One day, when the sun was blazing hot an eagle flew over the capital city of the Aztec civilization. People gazed as it soared high in the sky, later that day a rival culture tried to invade. When it seemed like the people of Tenochitlan had lost, the same eagle they had seen before came back. After the eagle had shown itself, it flew up to the sun, blocking the rays for a split second. The invaders were so stunned that the sun had disappeared. During this time an Aztec warrior raised his spear, and stabbed it threw the heart of the leader of the attackers army. The rival army fled Tenochitlan as soon as they saw their fallen leader. The symbol for this wicked goddess is an eagle. The Aztecs believed that when an eagle flew over their great city of Tenochitlan it gave them consent to head off to War, or told them that another society was going to infest their city. Tlanziah required blood sacrifices to stay strong, and pleased. If the Aztecs did not give her enough blood to satisfy her thirst, she would not send her eagle to warn them of danger. Without the signal from their goddess, a war would begin without the Aztecs even realizing.
