Physical Description[edit]

Mayans are an Ancient Civilization that adapted to show great intelligence and understanding of the cosmos and themselves.


Mayans were one of 3 great ancient western Civilizations, The Mayans were most notable for their intellect and wisdoms, Though they were also known for their Ruthless warriors and Violent rituals. Most of the Mayan civilizations were wiped out by Savage Conquistadors with poor hygiene and gunpowder weapons, Though the Mayans did not go down easily. Only small remnants of their culture exist in the world today.


Mayans like every society had its Pros and cons, From creating giant pyramids and courts for games similar to basket ball, to sacrificing virgins and ripping the still beating hearts from their enemies' chest. Mayans lived in dense jungles with many dangerous predators about, but they remained the apex as they learned to maneuver through the jungle with ease and leave traps scattered through the foliage. Mayans had a love for jade using it for weapons, Rituals, and jewelry its rare to find a Mayan without Jade on their person, Many Mayans wore piercings and tribal paint to show their individuality, with the Chiefs and elders wear extravagant head pieces with flowers, feathers and jade.
