In Aztec mythology and religion, Xipe Totec (“the flayed one”)was a life-death-rebirth deity, god of agriculture, vegetation, the east, disease, spring, goldsmiths, silversmiths, liberation and the seasons.
Xipe Totec connected agricultural renewal with warfare. He flayed himself to give food to humanity, symbolic of the way maize seeds lose their outer layer before germination and of snakes shedding their skin. Without his skin, he was depicted as a golden god. Xipe Totec was believed by the Aztecs to be the god that invented war.
In the current timeline, Xipe Totec was a magical being that was defeated by Still Hammer and his brothers. Utilizing powers of the three brothers, Xipe Totec was magically absorbed into Necalli who served as his prison.
Totec was able to overwhelm the mind of Necalli and used him to free his brothers in an attempt to change history. The alien beings were defeated by the members of the Eclipse (with the help of Quetzalcoatl).
