Camazotz

Camazotz are a particularly dangerous race of Undead which feed on the heart’s blood of mortals and Scions. Powerful and organised, they ruled over Mesoamerica long ago, before the gods of the Atzlanti defeated them and claimed the land as their own. Following this defeat, most of the Camazotz went into hiding, only to later return when the Nemontemi began anew. Many Camazotz survive from the time of the last Nemontemi; these elder Undead are powerful, cunning, and hungry for revenge upon the Atzlanti’s Scions.

Camazotz are among the most socially adept of Undead, and they use their abilities to seize positions of power and authority over mortals as readily now as they did in ancient times. Where once they were bloodthirsty priest-kings, these Undead now rule their followers as crime lords, corporate executives and political conspirators. All Camazotz can choose to appear human, and in human guise they tend to be extraordinarily beautiful and charismatic individuals. However, when violence or intimidation are called for they often reveal their chiropteran forms, turning into bloated, leathery-winged bat-monsters with deadly fangs and talons, as well as terrifying speed, strength and the power of flight.

Some particularly ancient Camazotz claim that they descend from a god themselves, one who pledged himself to Ah Puc millennia ago. If this is true and this forgotten god were to be released by the newest cycle…
