OriginEdit

Classic Maya rule was centered in a royal culture that was displayed in all areas of Classic Maya art. The king was the supreme ruler, only less by the gods and a mediator between the mortal realm and that of the gods. Maya royal succession was only passed down to the son of the family usually the eldest. Although being of royal bloodline was of utmost importance, the heir also had to be a successful war leader, as demonstrated by taking of captives. If a younger sibling proves to be a better warrior there's a chance that they can become king as well. The enthronement of a new king was a highly elaborate ceremony, involving a series of separate acts that included enthronement upon a jaguar-skin cushion, human sacrifice and receiving the symbols of royal power, such as a headband bearing a jade representation of the so-called jester god and the divine mask.

The rest of the origin was taken from the walls of the tomb where the mask was discovered: The to-be King must have his best general choose four other men to be sacrificed along with the general, their blood soaks into the mask and they are granted with the power to return in spectral form to protect their king.
