Well she called herself a were-jaguar but are we sure that’s the SPECIFIC type of creature she is? Because a couple of people have mentioned to us that she might be a Balam
From the TV show Grimm: The Balam from Mexican folklore are described as supernatural jaguars that are the guardians of nature. Their names were Iqi-Balam (Moon Jaguar), Balam-Agab (Night Jaguar), Balam-Quitze (Smiling Jaguar), and Mahu-Catah (Famous Name). They protect the villagers of the Quiche Indians, as well as their people and land. (x)
And the secrecy leads us to believe that whatever specific mythos she’s connected to, might tell us more about her story.
P.S. If anyone out there is an expert on this type of mythology or knows someone who is - contact us!! We might want to have you on the podcast to discuss the folklore during the hiatus!!
