So, since nobody exept a very few people actually believe in Quetzalcoatl and all of the other gods, races, legends, etc, they don’t have much in the way of actual power, but since they are remembered at least in some way by a bunch of people (even if it’s only through D&D), they still have a firm hold on reality. In Quetzalcoatl’s case, since he gets half of his power from nature, but it’s a peaceful power, he’s more suited to the role of guardian, protector, and patron of knowledge and learning, things that are still (at least somewhat) respected and revered by humankind; therefore his power still exists, but not in a way that would allow him to interfere too directly with humanity.

And if a legend counts as worship and remembrance, and David is telling Laz’s story (which is all a legend is), and all of us are reading this comic and putting our energis into it, doesn’t that mean that Laz really does have followers?

Think about Christianity and how the lumped all of the Gods and Goddess of other races in to one big person.

The resident evil within us as a race has always been there across generations, with the devil relentlessly looking for ways to draw it out of us into the open, and then take advantage of rhe resulting chaos. Evil IS an invention of our own human nature, with the devil as it’s personification in our own image, anthromorphing, I think it’s called. What constitutes crime and the “evil” behind it is up to the social and moral values of a given culture, whose reaction to percieved evil may be a crime in yet another cultures viewpoint. The millions murdered in extermination camps in WWII, a million plus cambodians murdered by Pol Pot in Cambodia, the ethnic “cleansing” in Serbia, and the treatment non-muslims often receive in intolerant islamic cultures are all examples….
