Xipe Totec “our lord the flayed one” as pictured in the codex Borgia. He’s also known as Red Tezcatlipoca. His direction is east. He is a god of agriculture, life-death-birth, and fertility.
He represents renewal and spring, as well as the growth to manhood for young men. Worshiped especially during the rainy season in March. The sacrificed were foreign warriors, often captured, and forced to participate in a gladiatorial games. He was then tied to a rope and given little to defend himself while he fought off four richly dressed Aztec warriors.
After the gladiator lost, he would be cut open and his still beating heart would be given to Xipe Totec according to Sahagun of the Florentine codex.
