Called the lord of the smoking mirror, Tezcatlipoca is the god of fate, the bringer of discord and vice. He possesses great creative powers, just like Quetzalcoatl, yet he uses them for negative purposes. Tezcatlipoca draws mortals into cycles of destruction and new creation wherever possible. His mirror made of obsidian shows the future and can predict famine, yet its images are distorted views, just as obsidian itself reflects distorted colors. He is always youthful with jaguar eyes and a missing right foot. Always devastatingly handsome and always trouble.

In modern times, he has often appeared as a gang leader luring young people into dangerous adventures. Other roles include work as a performance artist or an actor, a soldier fomenting a rebellion, an engineer plotting to start a new company, a corporate lawyer, and a talk radio host. His principal goals are always to stir up controversy and dismay, and he is very good at achieving his objectives.

Tezcatlipoca’s scions are incline towards similar labors but usually for slightly different ends. Controversy for the sake of controversy is rarely good enough. Most choose controversy in order to achieve particular goals. They make good social activists and political operatives, attack dogs for the cause they choose to represent. Like their father’s animal patron, the jaguar, they operate without being noticed until it is too late for their victims to avoid them. Few of Tezcatlipoca’s offspring understand that they chose these roles to strengthen the fabric of reality, not as ends in and of themselves.
