Major Story Arcs

Celestials

The Teteoh like many more of Earths pantheons is aware of the coming of the Celestials and their judgement of Earth and mankind. Quetzalcoatl both and Tezcatlipoca attend the meeting of various pantheons leaders the Council of the Godheads. It was here around 1000 AD the two would aid in empowering the Asgardian Destroyer armor with power as so it could battle against the Celestials when their next Host would visit the Earth. Chalchiuhtlique would be contacted by the Earth Elder Goddess Gaea for an alternative course of action to deal with the Celestials, one requiring the gathering of twelve of the best Earth mortals to serve as examples of humanities great potential. These humans would come to be known as the Young Gods. ultimately the Destroyer would fail in its task, however Gaea, Chalchiuhtlique and the Young Gods would succeed and the Celestials would depart after a favorable verdict.
