If Ixbalanqué is a male character it implies that there exists in the story and in history a break and a crevice that would be gave a false representation of by a large number of literary variables, among them the imagery connected with her name and capacity. The terminology, purpose of takeoff and vertebral section of this work, is the component that best delineates and clarifies the part of the female characters inside the story and the direction that they took after to the end of their plummet.
