In Aztec mythology, the Ciuteoteo were spirits of the underworld who lived under the protection Ciucoatl. They carry down the sun from the highest point of the sky to its home in the underworld in the shape of eagles, bringing illness to children. They were either the souls of the woman who died giving birth to children, or who had become warriors.
