  • Complete Monster: Tezcatlipoca is the Aztec god of Human Sacrifice, who molded Aztec society into a brutal empire that ripped hundreds of people's hearts out at a time. After being forced to sleep for centuries by the fall of his empire, he declared a young Juan Diego de la Muerte his chosen agent to bring him back to power across the Earth. Killing the adult Diego in a car crash, he resurrects him a year later, using him as a tether on Earth to kill the last three members of the bloodline that thwarted him and tormenting him with visions of brutal violence along the way. After killing two of his targets, Tezcatlipoca tries to kill Diego's girlfriend, mind controlling Diego himself to do the deed when he tries to stop him.
