Elvis wakes up at home, in his bed. There’s a party in the living room. Nancy asks him to dance. Ramiro made enchiladas. Mayaken’s in his room. Keta’s been gone for years. Elvis thinks it’s a dream…a pretty good one, Nancy thinks.
Mamá Chabela’s got herself a cave with some art and a fire. She’s preparing the kids with face paint and whole avocado pits.
Once upon a time, Isabela was a pregnant nun and she was fed up with priests getting women pregnant and abandoning them. She told the priest who got her pregnant that she wasn’t going to stay quiet. He beat her.
Elvis’ dad is teaching him how to use a doll for sympathetic magic. Elvis isn’t doing so well. Dad tells him to practice until he gets it right. One day when he’s a real Diablero, Dad will pass on the tooth from the demon his grandfather killed.
All is quiet, but the demon’s still lurking outside. She holds out her talisman and says these children aren’t his…but she loses the talisman.
Mayaken was Isaac and Keta’s child, not that Isaac thought that was true. Mayaken had a birthmark on the back of his neck. Keta took her eyes off him in the bath for a literal second and by the time she turned around he was gone.
Nancy has been a devotee of Santa Muerte since she was a wee little cutie. Her mom called Elvis and Keta in when she got possessed the cops and priests couldn’t help her.
We’re in Mexico City at a large apartment building. Mom’s putting Mariana to bed when Mariana hears a noise in the apartment. Mom does the mom thing–blames it on a scary movie and says monsters don’t exist.
The show follows Elvis Infante, a diablero living and working in Mexico City. A diablero hunts down and captures demons, or at least that’s what Elvis does.
In a first ever blog crossover event, we’re planning to recap the show itself (Kat) and then get into an RPG analysis on Mr. 5ft’s gaming blog, Hours Without Sleep.
