Binaye Ahani

North American - Twin members of the Anaye, in the lore of the Navaho. These beings, born without limbs, but with lethal glances, were killed by Nayenezgani and his brother. The twin heroes were protected from the lightning that sprang from the eyes of these monsters by their supernatural status. Nayenezgani threw salt on the fire which caused an explosion which made the monsters blind and helpless, so that the twins were easily able to despatch them with their knives, taking their scalps as proof of victory. On occassion, called Binaye Ahani.
