Long ago, ancient giants disguised themselves as gods and enslaved a race
of people that became known as the Aztecs. Using blood magic garnered from
the living sacrifices of their subjects, these false gods extended their
lives far beyond their natural span. The most sinister of this mock
pantheon was Mictlantecuhtli, who took upon himself the mantle of death and
the underworld. A powerful necromancer and a werejaguar, Lord
Mictlantecuhtli was believed to have transformed himself into a lich.
Though he no longer needed the blood sacrifices of the Aztecs to stave off
death, he continued to amass power from them.
He and his kin continued their bloody reign until Don Milano slew the
pretender god Tlaloc, instigating the Aztecs to rebel against the false
deities that held them in thrall. Many of the giants were slain, but the
mightiest retreated to their extraplanar dominions to plot and scheme a
return to power.
