In Mexico around 900 CE, Xolotl was the awkward, less populaire wolf-headed twin brother of the god Quetzalcoatl.
Xolotl was a wolf-headed shapeshifter. His job was bodyguard to the sun which means he had to escort the sun every night when it set, and protect it through the dangerous Underworld so that it could rise again the suivant morning.
To protect the sun, he had to shape-shift into the loup star, Sirius, every day. It was very tiring but important work and sometimes after a hard day’s work, Xolotl got confused about his transformations back again....
At the beginning of time, Sirius the loup étoile, star became enraged when he was not invited to attend a council on How The Earth Should Be Made. So he sent a loup to steal the first humans before they could be released from the whirlwind bag of The Storm That Comes Out of the West.
Unfortunately, Sirius dropped the bag and the humans spilled out and fought for their lives. When the étoile, star loup tried to round them up, the humans ran and all of them got away okay, except one. One human received a vicious bite from Sirius, the Dog Star.
