Hunab Ku is the leader of the Ahau, a superhumanly powerful race worshiped as gods by the Maya people of Mexico from 1800 BC to the 16th Century AD.

Hunab Ku was presumably manifested by the Demiurge along with other deities in response to early man's subconscious need for gods. Hunab Ku emerged from nothingness with an object called the Heart of Heaven, with which he created the lesser gods, such as his son, Itzamna, god of the sun. Hunab Ku eventually ceded the responsibility of interacting directly with mortals to Itzamna, but he still leads the Ahau from the Upperworld.[3]


Hunab Ku possesses greater than average abilities of an Ahau.
