We, the Gods Picture

We, the gods - we, the gods - hide well - it's so difficult to find us
Don't ever claim we are dead - we rest here and we guide you
You need to be controlled - so yes, we will direct you
We, the gods - we, the gods - save lives
But we demand some sacrifice
We, the gods - we, the gods
Praise love - but also we know war
Hold the spear - face our enemy - abandon yourself - to the storm of the battle
We came in here - to live forever - we smell your flesh - and we smell your fear

These are six out of nine "Macabraic Spirits" (or Elemental Gods who came into Being), undeniably the main antagonists of the entire CUETZPALIN Mythos. The Macabraics are nine elemental beings who have settled the parameters of life's evolution for aeons, and each of them has left its own paradigm, characteristic or algorithms on the environments of several planets. While some of them would argue they're creator gods, their true origins are clouded, and they're both creators (because they indeed have defined some rules of physics, like gravity, and have molded the atmosphere of several planets and environments, some differently from others) and usurpers (because there existed life before them, and an older generation of immortal beings, the beast-like Huehueyolcatl. The lifeforms related to the Huehueyolcatl, however, were self-sufficient, as they were photosynthetical or chemiosynthetical, needed just some substances or sunlight, unlike the predators created later by the Macabraics). The first time these nine gods have joined has been to capture and destroy the six Huehueyolcatl, sabotage their self-sufficient environments and then install over the next generations of living creatures a programmed obsolescence, to instigate a systematic violence and oppression. The growth of predators and the impoverishment of whatever environment over the formerly self-sufficient ones has marked the transition from an aeon known as Alchera ("The Dreaming"), predominated by the Huehueyolcatl, into the Jaktens Tid ("Age of the Hunt"), predominated by the Macabraics. Later, some Macabraics would defend there's even another era later than that, the Kali Yuga - "Iron Age", determined by sedentary civilization. Others would just see it as a mere continuation or result of their power-grab and consequential sovereignity. It was during this time, millions of years ago, that the Macabraics have begun to "research" on what they called "The Great Experiment", which consisted in compete with their "brothers" (it's not like the Macabraics share a common origin, neither that they're allies, in most cases are even rivals, but they do gather some times to discuss the path which their creations and researches are taking, of course not revealling all their plans for the future, which often contains plots against their own 'brothers') not through direct contact, but through the use of "Champions", beasts that have faced and survived the most dangerous tests, challenges and duels. The very empoverishment of life, as well the resulting need to consume other beings to survive has been a task which they placed upon all creatures, in order to differ all the sentient beings into just two groups: the Gods and those who have to work in order to survive (In that sense, the Huehueyolcatl were like most of the beings spawned by them, as these beings didn't need them to survive, they didn't keep such a relation of power).

The six Macabraics shown in this drawing, all gathered by Baal, have joined in a fight against Tupaq Amaru III, the human form of Tupaq, the Macabraic Spirit of Darkness, in the year two thousand after Iesu (the first year of the 50th Century after the birth of the Centzonmimixcoa and the Topakar Revolution which witnessed the foundation of the Ors Ohorela and the beginning of the inter-galactic, century-lasting major event, the "Topakhon Wars" [29th to 17th Centuries before Iesu]). At this time, the beginning of the 21st Century a.I, Tupaq had been using the resources gathered by the workers of the UTSST Nations in Tredius to haste the development of Mobile Topakhon II (both an artificial satellite which would be the new home for the Topakar authorities and a mobile weapon, fueled by an endlessly energy-producing Black Hole completely controlled by Tupaq), and planned to obliterate Tredius as soon as Topakhon Mobile II was finished. This coalition of six Macabraics (which excludes, besides Tupaq, Lapolakh the Macabraic of Fire, who wasn't invited, and Hydros the Macabraic of Water, who refused the invitation deeming Baal's methods as uneffective) is composed of (from left to right):

  1. Ymir, the Macabraic of Cold. Director of the Jötunn Scientific Organization and headmaster of the hellish circle known as Hel, part of an inter-galactic network of trading and slavery of sentient beings, in his case, in exchange of genetic goods.
  2. Moloch, the Macabraic of Metal. Regards himself as the dark heart of the universe, source of all hate and oppression. Whenever and wherever there is a dictatorial government, Moloch may be behind this. He's the pioneer of the industry and the Iron Age, who moves the masses binding them through hate and blindness.
  3. Baal, thought by most to be the Macabraic of Light, but actually a mere remotely controlled body/avatar of his, whose original form hides away from all other Macabraics. Since the Topakhon Wars, with the formation of the Frashokeretian Alliance, has practically taken the lead on several affairs and matters regarding the Macabraics not taking conflicts between each other, in order to prevent the destruction of all creation. Despite (or perhaps because of it) his political skills, into preventing conflicts by assimilating the wills of others, he plans to overpower all his brothers and become the only god. Several of his followers have been the historical pioneers of the monotheist cults.
  4. Huo, the Macabraic of Earth and Stone. Arguably the most materialistic and greedy of the Macabraics, Huo thrives on the mining of precious stones and controls an inter-galactic network of mining industries which counts with lots of slave labor. Even then, he's mostly unaware of the hidden elements (those which the Macabraics don't directly control). Either way, it's thanks to him that the economical system has become indistinguishable from the political one.
  5. Huitzopoca, the Macabraic of Wind (Ehecatl, or, as he prefers to call, Ihíyotl [breath, spirit] in Ollin [motion]). Always blood-thirsty, it's attributed to him the first signals of programmed obsolescence into the sentient beings, a.k.a the impelling external need for violence in order to survive, because of his bloodlust. The god of war and wind among the Aztecs, patron of the altepetl (city-state) Yaoyotepetl in the plan of Aztlán, detains great influence in the Aztec Confederation, which has played a major role in the Topakhon Wars, due to the ability of the Cuetzpalin kind, native to it and created by him, in manipulating a substance known as Teyoliatl, the only which could dissipate the shadowy Centzonmimixcoa. Moloch oftens says Huitzopoca lives in the past or rely in past reputation, because of the little knowledge which most galactic empires have about the partially isolated Aztlán.
  6. Tempo, the Macabraic of Space and Vacuum, also related to gravity. The most silent of them all, always scheming, it has been attributed to him most of the physical parameters of the universe/dimension of matter and energy. The very perception of the true plans of Tupaq (the Big Rip, which is the division of all the universe's atoms, and the dissipation of all matter and energy into everlasting darkness. It's the artificial acceleration of a natural proccess of the universe's expansion), as well that the universe's quantity of dark energy, billions of years ago, has surpassed that of dark matter and all other forms of matter and energy, worrying their brothers about a possibly distant future in which Tupaq would indeed be the last heir of all power. Indeed, Tempo is also credited with the very first assembly of the Macabraics, who have gathered to fight the six Huehueyolcatl and impose their power over the creatures which lived in their surroundings (the very concept of Macabraics, perhaps, is just something invented by him to gather all-powerful beings whose origin, perhaps, is not even common. The Macabraics may not be 'a kind of gods', but rather a group of different gods, with different properties, assimilated and driven to his plans). In recent history (about a million of years ago), Tempo's been responsible for the edification of the Chronpuchian Empire, that's still the largest Empire on the galaxy, that has several colonies in realms barely known by other nations, and that has molded the very concept of civilization. He's also one of the pioneers in the understanding of hidden elements, and the one who taught the Chronpuchians on the use of Serapel to develop artificial atmospheres and spacecraft. He believes that "the one who less govern is the one who governs better".
