Ameyalli is the name of the hylek nature goddess. She is an animistic deity worshiped by the Itzel and Nuhoch tribes. To these hylek, Ameyalli is both the spirit and substance of the jungle itself, and as such any challenge, prey, and predator that enters the jungle is a blessing (or blessing in disguise) sent by Ameyalli. The sole exception to this belief is the mordrem, which the hylek view as invaders with nothing to gain from.
