As part of the latest Shin Megami Tensei V demon trailer, we now have a look at Quetzalcoatl. The creature has appeared in a ton of different entries over the franchise’s many years starting with the original Megami Tensei.

For some background information on Quetzalcoatl, read the following overview from the Megami Tensei Wiki:

Quetzalcoatl is an Aztec sky and creator god along with representing the Sun, the element air, wind, and learning. The name is a combination of quetzal, a brightly colored Mesoamerican bird, and coatl, meaning serpent. The name was also taken on by various ancient leaders.

Due to their cyclical view of time and the tendency of leaders to revise histories to support their rule, many events and attributes attributed to Quetzalcoatl are exceedingly difficult to separate from the political leaders that took this name on themselves. Quetzalcoatl is often referred to as The Feathered Serpent, connected to the planet Venus and was also the patron god of the Aztec priesthood, of learning and knowledge.

Today Quetzalcoatl is arguably the best known Aztec deity, and is often thought to have been the principal Aztec god. However, Quetzalcoatl is one of several important gods in the Aztec pantheon along with the gods Tlaloc, Tezcatlipoca and Huitzilopochtli.
