|Present Exchange with Xolotl|
- Xolotl is based on the deity of the same name in Aztec mythology. Xolotl is a god of fire, lightning, twins, monsters, and sickness; and was often described as a dog-headed man. He is also closely associated with death as Xolotl was a psychopomp, beings that would lead the souls of the dead to the underworld.
- In one variation of the Five Suns in the legend of Teotihuacan, the gods decided to sacrifice themselves for the newly created fifth sun. Xolotl withdrew from the sacrifice and cried to the point where his eyes fell from their sockets.
- And according to another story recounted in the Florentine Codex, the fifth sun did not move as it was created. So Ehecatl decided to slay the other gods as sacrifice to induce the new sun to move. Xolotl, not wanting to die, fled and hid but was eventually found and slain by Ehecatl.
- Xolotl's Sacred Artifact may be a reference to the spiral conch-like necklace called ehecailacacozcatl or "wind jewel", he and his brother Quetzalcoatl were depicted to have this necklace adorning them. The stars may be a reference to how Quetzalcoatl and Xolotl were associated with the planet Venus with Quetzalcoatl as the god of the morning star and Xolotl as the god of the evening star, as both are the planet Venus seen at different times of the day.
- His charge skill "Mayahuel Ehecatl" is in reference to two Aztec deities; Mayahuel, a goddess associated with the maguey plant and fertility, as well as the wife of Quetzalcoatl, and Ehecatl, a god of wind and is often considered as an aspect of Quetzalcoatl. This is also reflected in his title "Defender of Wind and Wood".
- Most of Xolotl's skills have direct ties to his story.
- "Gardener" is in reference to the Mayahuel portion of his sacred artifact where it could rapidly grow plants.
- "Sacrificial Defender" is a reference to how he was sacrificed in order to move the fifth sun and how he is a guard dog.
- "Shapeshifter" is a reference to how he hid from Ehecatl in the story recounted in the Florentine Codex, where Xolotl transformed into two stalks of maize plant (xolotl), a double maguey plant (mexolotl), and an amphibious animal (axolotl).
- After receiving a new pair of eyes from the Crafters, Xolotl, upon seeing the Protagonist quickly exclaims that they are his exiled brother Quetzalcoatl.
- This would also make Tezcatlipoca and Xolotl brothers.
- Though having the appearance of a doberman breed of dog due to its strong associations with guard dogs; Xolotl may also be based on the Xoloitzcuintle or Xolo or "Mexican hairless dog" originating from Mexico, as the dog was named after the god Xolotl and the word "itzcuīntli" meaning "dog" in Nahuatl, where the name originated.
