Ojalá te quedes ciegu, ("I hope you become blind,")
ojáncanu malnacíu, ("odious ojáncanu,")
pa arrancarte el pelu blancu ("to tear your white hair,")
y te mueras maldecíu. ("and so you die cursed.")
~ Popular saying

The Ojáncanu (also Ojáncano) is a giant cyclops found in Cantabrian mythology, and is an embodiment of cruelty and brutality. Its species arguably the most well-known entity in Cantabrian mythology.

Appearance[]

Ojancanu2

It appears as a 10 foot tall giant with superhuman strength, with hands and feet that contain ten digits each. With a very wild and beast-like temperament, it sports a long mane of red hair (mostly depicted as black or brown), and just as much facial hair, with both nearly reaching to the ground.

The females (called Ojáncana) are virtually the same, though without the presence of a beard. However, the females have long drooping breasts that like their male counterpart’s hair, reach the ground. In order to run, they must carry their breasts behind their shoulders.

Personality[]

Ojáncanus are constantly doing evil deeds such as pulling up rocks, destroying huts and trees, and blocking water sources.

The strangest thing about these peculiar cyclopean species is their reproduction process. Instead of mating, when an old Ojancanu dies, the others distribute the insides and bury the corpse under an oak or yew tree. Nine months later, worms grow out of the corpse and the Ojáncana feeds them with the blood in her breasts, until they become Ojáncanus or Ojáncanas three years later.

Ojancanus fight off Cantabrian brown bears and Tudanca bulls, always achieving victory. They are thought to be the creators of gorges and ravines, as well as the reason for some trees to be found uprooted.

The Ojancanus only fear the Anjanas, the good Cantabrian fairies. They are often depicted with clubs or using small trees as weapons, as well as a sling and a walking stick which they can turn into a wolf, crow or viper.

Apparently the easiest way of killing an Ojancanu is to pull the single white hair found in its mess of a beard. They also usually only strike at night.
