Quoth the Aluxo’ob:

“You left me honey, you left me maize, you left me Mezcal. But you forgot my SMOKES! You better get me a pack of Luckies real quick, or you’re going to regret it later!”

Kith Excerpt:

Some may erroneously assume the Alux’ob to be simple grain or crop spirits, akin to the kindly crop fairies of European folklore, or variation of Inanimae. Those figures are quickly taught never to assume. Neither men, nor Calli (Kith), is safe from their violent ways, and if they feel that they are slighted, they will ensure that the offending party never makes the mistake again. Even in recent years, at an Elton John concert in the Chichen Itza ruins, lack of respect caused the whole stage to collapse until restitution was made, and the Alux’s pride placated.

The Calli hold dominion over the fields and crops, watching from afar and blessing the farmers in any way that they can. They protect it from evil, and entreat the ghosts and old gods to do the same- serving as intermediaries into the modern world. Each of the Alux has their own Kahtal Alux – a tiny house in the middle of the field, no higher than a meter tall, that the Alux work their magics. Even today in the modern world, these structures can be found across the Empire of Dusk.

Though a nominally Melahuac Tribe (Seelie), the Alux’ob, singular Alux are a dark Calli. They are suffused with the dark energy of Choquizcali – The House of Weeping- one of the many meso-american underworlds. Half ghost themselves, some Fae hold that the Alux’ob are angry spirits of the ancestors, who weren’t propagated with enough sacrifices to still their wrath. There may be some truth in this. They demand respect and proper sacrifices to quell their wrath and brook no disrespect.



“The Indians worked together for their common good, and no sacrifice was too great for their corporate well-being…
An Aztec would have been horrified at the naked isolation of an individual’s life in our Western world.”
– George C. Vaillant, “The Aztecs of Mexico”
