AD 378. Chak Tok Ich'aak, the Lord of Tikal (Mutal), sent his third daughter to marry the son of one of the lords of Teotihuacan (Tollan) in Central Mexico in fulfillment of an alliance. Thirteen years later Ix Bahlam Ich'aak (Lady Jaguar Claw) returns with her husband, Jatz'om Kuh (Spearthrower Owl), who has been chartered to deliver a prophecy and establish a new order in the jungle cities. He orders Sihyaj K'ahk' (Born of Fire), his warlord enforcer, to execute his wife's family and erase even the memory of her father and the former rulers.
