“Without worrying, parents let their youngsters go wherever they wished,
for the children were never alone.
They were Always accompanied by their small but powerful guardians, the Pillis. And the Pillis(Protector-elementals for children) were worthy of the confidence the parents had in them. No harm ever came to the children,
whether they climbed steep slopes, or up to the eagle nests, which were very hard to reach.”
– Roselis von Sass (The Truth About the Incas)
