Hellish Death God of the Mayan Underworld

God of Death AH-PUCH is the Ruler of MITNAL or Level 9 of the Underworld: the deepest and nastiest department of Mayan Hell.

Identified by the Aztecs with MICTLANTECUHTLI, the grinning God of Death, AH-PUCH is also known as God A, the first of the ALPHABET-GODS. A is for Arggggghh!!

AH-PUCH likes to surface at night and skulk around in really scary mode. A putrefying corpse with an owl’s head is his favorite outfit. Wishing to look the part he uses the eyes of the dead to add the finishing touches to his headgear. One of his nicknames is ‘The Flatulent One’, which is not something we care to investigate further.

For some reason AH-PUCH often has bells tied to his hair, but he is not being cute. What he does when he homes in on a victim is worse than you need to imagine...

There is only one way to escape his attentions. Howl! Shriek! Moan! Scream! Give it your best shot. Sound utterly convincing. AH-PUCH will then assume you are already being dealt with by some of his lesser demons. He will stop outside your door to sigh "Ah..." and pass by with a grim smile.

But AH-PUCH, the Lord of Death and Patron God of the number ten, will get you in the end. He uses MUAN, the evil bird of bad tidings, as his messenger. To this day the legend persists that when an owl screeches, someone nearby will die. If you hear a hoot, take a deep breath and count to ten.
