Touyo

Central American - A name used by Tezcatlipoca. When Huemac's daughter saw a naked pepper-seller, Tezcatlipoca in disguise, she fell in love with him and, despite her father's objections, married him. When the rule of the king, Huemac, descended into corruption and oppression, Touyo organised a mass meeting of the people and beating a drum caused them to dance themselves into unconsciousness and fall into a ravine where they were all turned to stone. He also destroyed a bridge on which thousands of people were standing and they too perished in the river below. As a result of this and the ensuing plagues the king repented his evil ways.
