The Ojáncanu and Ojáncana is a creature with origins in Cantabrian mythology, legend and folklore.
The ojáncanu is a cyclops found in Cantabrian mythology, and is an embodiment of cruelty and brutality. 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, and just as much facial hair, with both nearly reaching to the ground. Apparently the easiest way of killing an Ojancanu is to pull the single white hair found in its mess of a beard. The females (called Ojancana) 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.
