Mixcoatl or Camaxtli, was the god of the hunt and identified with the Milky Way, the stars, and the heavens in several Mesoamerican cultures. He was the patron deity of the Otomi, the Chichimecs, and several groups that claimed descent from the Chichimecs. While Mixcoatl was part of the Aztec pantheon, his role was less important than that of Huitzilopochtli, who was their central deity.
In one story, Tezcatlipoca transformed himself into Mixcoatl and invented the fire drill by revolving the heavens around their axes, bringing fire to humanity. Along with this cosmic fire drill, Mixcoatl was the first to strike fire with flint. These events made Mixcoatl a god of the milky way, along with war, and the hunt.
Mixcoatl was also related to 400 more gods, the Centzonmimixcoa, whom, together with his 3 brothers and their sister, he slew by ambush. Mixcoatl was also thought of as being the father of another important deity, Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent.
Mixcoatl can be easily distinguished by his hunting gear (bow and arrows) and his bag of games.
Children of Mixcoatl in rare cases are able to enchant projectiles to lock onto a target and even the direction that they are going until it hits the target. This power depends on how many obstructions are in the surroundings but the target must be within the user's sight to work.
