Military “Rock Stars.”

The Aztec Leopard Warrior was just one of the many colorful combatants that Montezuma I referred to as the “Flowery Warriors” who were in the continual Aztec conflicts. They were like shock troops in the battle, but also dedicated to their own literal sacrifice. Theirs was a life of ritual and union with the “gods.” Their traditions and training gave them a special standing in Aztec society. That culture is still alive and practiced in Mexico today.
