Central American - A prince. He was captured by the Aztecs and sacrificed on an altar. Years later a tree grew from a crevice in the altar and here landed a huge eagle with a serpent grasped in its talons. The priest who saw the bird dived into the lake and met the rain-god Tlaloc, who told the priest to found the city of Mexico on the site. Referred to as Copal.
