Vucub Caquix

by Micha F. Lindemans
A Mayan demon of the underworld. He was the father of the giant demons Cabrakan and Zipacna. He considered himself to be the sun, the moon, and the light. For this reckless thought, and for the part he played in the death or their father, the twins Hunahpu and Ixbalangue descended to the underworld and killed him.
