VUCUB-CAQUIXAlso known as VUCAB-CAME, VUCUB CAMÉ, VUCAB-CAKIX
Demonic Deadly Death God of the Maya UnderworldHERO-TWINS — who cheated and used blowpipes. His sons were also troublemakers, being the giant demons CABRAKAN and ZIPACNA.
According to legend, VUCUB-CAQUIX carried the false sun in his beak and was shot down in flames at the end of the last creation.
Interestingly enough, in the constellation of Cygnus his beak holds the mysterious star X-1, which became a super-nova and now seems to harbor a black hole.
