Legend

Mizuki's illustration of Tori-Otome from South America

Nazca's mythological backgrounds appear to be based on two different bird-man legends. First the Tangata Manu, the name of the Birdman cult (along with being a species) that existed on Easter Island. Makemake is the chief god of the Tanagata Manu. A competition is held to decide the tribe's leader, where one must swim to Motu Nui, fetch a sooty tern egg and return to Rapa Nui. The first to return is given the title of Tangata Manu ("bird man") and great authority. Although the Tanagata Manu was discouraged by missionaries in the 1860s, the popularity and memory was not erased and it is still present in decoration of the island's church. The second is the Tori-Otome from the Andes region.[1]
