Mayahuel gave origen to the maguey plants. It is said that when Quetzalcoatl and Mayahuel were fleeing from Tzitzimitl (stars demon ), they tried to hide by pretending to be branches of a tree. However, Tzitzimitl recognized Mayahuel and broke the branches into pieces. Quetzalcoatl, devastated, buried the pieces, and from those fragments of branches the first maguey plants began to sprout.
