Chantico
Lady Of The Hearth

Chantico is the Aztec goddess of home and hearth fires. Chantico is in charge of precious things and is very protective of her treasures. Because of her mischievousness, she was turned into a dog by the maize-god Tonacatecutli. Her name means "she who dwells in the house".
