Yacarcae of Tahuantinsuyu Picture

Yet another drawing related to the later installments of the CUETZPALIN Mythos

The Yacarcae are traditional groups of necromancers and dark magicians from the region once managed by the Tahuantinsuyu (originally, the fourfold administrative corpus of the Incas, often called "Inca Empire"). Their traditions, however, precede the foundation of Tahuantinsuyu, and date back at least to the pre-Inca Moche culture, from the Northern coast of Peru (Chinchasuyu). The Yacarcae's dark arts mostly rely on the craft of a substance later called Duskoplasm, which is basically solified darkness/phantom dark energy, and its manipulation through the Darr hidden element on its activated state. During the Old Moche Imperial Era (23rd to 29th Centuries a.X / 7th to 1st Centuries b.I), the Yacarcae have been approached by the exiled arthropod Ai Apaec, a former Ta'tal and veteran of the Topakhon Wars, one of the last survivors after Topakhon Mobile's destruction in 1243 a.X (1658 b.I), who brought with him the Lanzon, an Omphalos-like structure of the Darr mineral which possess amazing power. From then, Ai Apaec would inspire several conquests of the Moche and their expansion throughout the continent, and into Nazca territory, but also plan a way to gather other remaining Topakar peoples scattered across the galaxy since the end of the Ors Ohorela. The Yacarcae traditions would remain even after Ai Apaec's successful escape into the K Pacha System (through the Sun Gate of Tiwanaku, that used to be a portal), in the following years of the Moche Culture, and even later to its destruction caused by series of natural disasters and an imminent civil war (orchestrated by the Macabraics Huitzopoca and Hydros, which feared the Moche could potentially return the Centzonmimixcoa from their prision), through descendants that formed the Chimú culture, and after the conquest of the Chimú by Tupaq Yupanqui, would make it into the Inca Empire.

Many years after the disintegration of the Tahuantinsuyu, the Yacarcae would be just another series of underground magic practicioners (like the Powaq, Nahual and Cihuateteoh groups which lurked in the underground civilization of the "Latin American" continent), until the revolution led by Tupaq III, which witnessing a complete restructuration of power in the Peruvian areas, and later, expanding to a vast region comprehending former areas of the Inca Empire, had Tupaq himself identifying and placing Yacarcae within official ranks of his long lasting government. In that point, however, many other Yacarcae already had their own established lives on other nations, and it would take time for the borders of both the United Nations' Association and the Union of the Topakar Socialist States of Tredius to crumble (by the violent initiative of the Huaca against industrial civilization, by the year of 4916 a.X) so that the Yacarcae could leave the underground and join with their fellow Palarokhian necromancers into the surface of a collective of post-civilization semi-nomadic societies. Depicted here, there is Ai Apaec (above), a Necromancess (left corner), her apprentice (right before her), Wiracocha (an avatar of Tupaq himself, shaped after the Ancient Lord of Sipán, from the Moche culture) and the Lady of Cao (a revived Moche ruler from a dynasty later than that of the lord of Sipán, she's also an agent for a pack of Cihuateteoh from Chichihuacuauhco, whose goal is to share the legions of the undead into more hands than those which Wiracocha/Tupaq defines, thus "decentralizing power in Topakar society").

After the breakup of the UTSST, the Yacarcae are the main representatives of the Topakar people and supporters of a Topakar civilization. They will eventually use their skills in necromancy and other magic abilities to grant security to survivors from the civilizations ruined by the Huaca and Quetzalcoatl, but only in exchange of works such as the rebuilding of cities, the crafting of weapons, hunting of animals, capture and execution of war prisoners (to be used into the undead legions) and production of food. The selective charity of the Yacarcae will yet deceive many of the hopeless, desperate survivors from a post-civilization time, but won't ever grant them the autonomy which the anti-authoritarian individuals supported by some Huaca plan to grant, indeed, it isn't even planned by the Topakar, whose plan is rather taking charge of the functionality of the system.
