I want to help construct and improve prosthetic body parts. Bettering someone's life is definitely something I want to do for a career.
Xolot (Feathered Dog). In Aztec and Toltec mythology, Xolotl is the god of lightning who guides the dead to the Mictlan. The Aztec regard him as the twin brother of Quetzalcoatl. As lord of the evening star and personification of Venus, he pushes the sun at sunset towards the ocean and guards her during the night on her dangerous journey through the underworld. Xolotl is represented as a skeleton, or as a man with the head of a dog.

Tlaloc: 'He Who Makes Things Sprout’. God of rain, lightning and thunder. He is a fertility god, but also a wrathful deity, responsible for both floods and droughts. Tlaloc has goggle eyes and large jaguar teeth and resides in mountain caves. In Aztec times he was so important that he had a special shrine on top of Mt. Tlaloc and he shared the Great Temple of Tenochtitlan with Huitzilopochtli.

El dios Tláloc manejaba cuatro rumbos, situado en el oriente del universo, y cada uno de ellos una gran vasija derramaba un tipo de lluvia diferente. De su paraíso llamado Tlalocan procedía el agua beneficiosa y necesaria para la vida en la tierra.
