Journal entries[ | ]

I have such bitter empathy for the many virgin brides of T'amok' made into monsters here. I have been forced to destroy countless numbers, for they all without exception attack me on sight. Still, I share with them their torment and their sincere deception.

Had the Jaguar God also promised them strength, invulnerability, freedom from pain in exchange for their adoration? Whatever the dowry given by T'amok' for their divine betroathal, they were not made immune to heartbreak. When they wail a part of me wails with them.

"Xbeltz'aloc spoke to me of the virgin widows of the Jaguar God, T'amok'. How they moaned when he killed their husband's champions. How they lament for their lives sacrificed for nothing." - Confessions of Pablo Cordoba
