Cortez’s arrival had been foretold by the superstitious Aztecs, but by the time they had discovered he in fact, was not the true God, it was too late. For Cortez had on his side, the belief in the three things at the time that mattered most in life – the King, God, and Gold.
DEVILS ARMCHAIR GN

But he only pretends to be a sorcerer: for he simply has found his way to get rich and affluent. But his rise to the top is quick, as will be his downfall. For his game has bothered his Master and his worst enemy: the Devil himself.
