Plot[edit]

A young Aztec huntsman from the village of Atoyac (near Tenochtitlan), named Little Serpent, is out hunting. He sees a nobleman, mortally wounded by the otomi warrior Mountain Head. The dying nobleman gives him an ornate necklace and utters the name Tlatli. Little Serpent is accused for the murder. After learning that his parents have been taken away and the land is affected by a strange disease, Little Serpent searches for the poet in Tlatelolco. With Mountain Head still at his heels, he infiltrates Moctezuma's palace. He has a limited time to find the nature of the disease, before his parents are to be sacrificed. Finding a link to several necklaces, Little Serpent enters the temple of the Ceremonial Center, where a nobleman and priestess are shown to be responsible for the disease, trying to overthrow the emperor. The leader of this cult is Black Flower, who eventually forces Little Serpent to poison the water or drink the poison himself. The hero of the story escapes and eventually makes his way back to his village. He is arrested and about to be sacrified, but is saved thanks to a bracelet he got from a beggar. Little Serpent and his family are giving an official pardon and Little Serpent himself becomes a nobleman.
