Art by Joel Holtzman

Xochipilli (The Flower Prince) is the Teotl God of Arts, Games, Beauty, Dance, Flowers and Song. He is the patron of writing and painting and many other forms of art. He is the twin brother of Xochiquetzal and son of Xipe Totec. He is the protector of homosexuals and male prostitutes, a role he took at heart as a Godborn amongst the Olmecs.

Xochipilli is a kind God and has always had a reputation of being a naive idealistic. Covered in hallucinogenic mushrooms bringing ecstasy around him, if anyone is to be found spontaneously breaking into song and dance, it is the Flower Prince. He gets caught up in the excitement of the moment, and wants everyone else to feel that way, too. Few Gods are as generous with their time and energy as he is when it comes to encouraging others, and no other God does it with such irresistible style. His endearing and genuinely kind personality make him the diplomat of a pantheon that is often feared and misunderstood. He knows how to be calculative (one does not stay a god long without a bit finesse) but much prefers creating true emotional connections. He was Xiuhtecuhtli's best friend while he was still a God, and remains the Teotl's main emissary in Muspelheim to this day. He is known for his irrepressibly social and excited attitudes. He does not internalize much of anything, sharing it all with his extensive circles of friends with wit, style, enthusiasm, and optimism. In that sense, he has great relations with Chasqua, Sarasvati and Erzulie, with whom he shares exuberance, optimism, and a boundless energy.

Xochipilli has powers over dreams, recreational drugs and flowers, and takes great pride in protecting the LGBT community. When he visits the World, he is a flower salesman with opiates in the back, a gay-right activist sacrificing radical homophobes or a tasteful party-planner. His Godborns are just as inclined to break into songs or spontaneous bursts of art and be overly enthusiastic about everything. They may seem naive, but they are actually quite witty and determined : they smile and laugh just as much when they dance in a rave or when they stick a knife in your chest.
