It might explain why the Mayans suffered those nasty draughts that ultimately lead to their fall*. It certainly sounds like a demon that told them it would be a good idea to throw your sacrifices in your only water source during a draught. And I am sure the Atzecs (and all other native Americans at the time) consider the Europeans and the diseases they brought over to be one hack of a punishment.
* Yes, I am aware this is just one potential theory and there are other potential explanations 😉
