Among the common folk of the Olman people living in Hepmonaland and the Amedio jungle are those who worship Tezcatlipoca, the smoking Mirror. This deity is the god of the sun, moon, night, scheming, and betrayals. Among these worshipers are those who throw off the bonds placed upon them by society and gain the attention of Tezcatlipoca.
Hearing Tezcatlipoca's whispers, those who have gained his attention are encouraged to seek refuge away from society in the jungle where they can live a life combating the confines that civilization places upon the world. Those who listen to Tezcatlipoca become Smoke Warriors and push the boundaries of ethics and morality, and seek to change their fate by force of will.
After receiving the blessing of Tezcatlipoca, Smoke warriors roam the land committing acts and joining causes they feel Tezcatlipoca will approve of. Smoke Warriors often work in unison with priests of Tezcatlipoca, but these unions are shot-lived affairs before the Smoke Warrior's chaotic nature takes them off in other directions.
