Quetzalcoatl

Mesoamerica

Quetzalcoatl was worshiped as the great ‘feathered serpent’ god in the pantheon of Aztecs, Toltecs and the Mayans. The major deity often took the form of a mythical dragon-like entity who seemed to have played a multifaceted role while practicing his ‘godly’ business.

Quetzalcoatl was the god of creation; the sire of both the Morning and Evening Star, the protector, the craftsmen, the rain-maker, the wind-blower and also the fire-bringer.

Furthermore, as opposed to their cultural penchant for human sacrifices, Quetzalcoatl was supposedly not fond of such bloodthirsty practices.
