Ix Chel is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.

Lore[ | ]

There are many stories about Ix Chel, and her faces are as myriad as the phases of the moon. Among some tribes she is known as the Great End or the Red Rainbow. Among others, She of the Pale Face. But she is perhaps best known as the Lady of the Rainbows.

Whatever her sobriquet, Ix Chel is a goddess of facets; the moon is within her purview, and fertility as well. She is associated with life and medicine, but death walks in her shadow. All the colors of the rainbow are hers to command, but she weaves them into catastrophe for those who dare stand against her. She commands the storms to wash away those who anger her, but brings the rain to those who need it. But though her roles are many, she takes her responsibilities seriously.

It is said that Ix Chel was there at the beginning of the universe, and that her children, the Bacabs, took the form of jaguars to race to the edges of the world, in order to hold it up. Ix Chel herself often takes the form of a great jaguar to achieve her ends – such as when she fled her husband, the sun god, or made war on her enemies. With her spindle, she guides the motion of the universe, weaving together the formative elements of existence so that creation rises from destruction – and vice versa.

But now, that ancient cycle is under threat. The pantheons are slow to confront the foe before them, and their petty rivalries and grievances endanger all that is. Thus it falls to Ix Chel to paint a picture of hope, and light the way to a new dawn...whatever the cost.

Trivia[ | ]

General[ | ]

  • Despite being referenced as a moon goddess in her lore, Ix Chel was never worshipped as one by the Maya. This is a common misconception as Ix Chel and the unnammed moon goddess, whom Awilix is believed to be derived from.
    • This also explains why panthers can be seen in her card arts, as she was also worshipped as a Jaguar goddess.
  • Ix Chel was worshipped mainly as a goddess of medicine and midwifery, as well as goddess of the rainbow, rain, sweat baths, war, and the earth.
