A race of Biblical Giants from the Valley of Hebron in Canaan, born from Anak. These beings were so huge that when humans saw them they felt as small as grasshoppers. They attempted to reclaim the Promised Land and attacked the tribes of Israel and the Moab people of Egypt. They are said to be similar to the Nephilim and the Rephaim- other Biblical Giants. One source from the scripture ‘Opera’, the author Hugh of St. Cler states that the Anakim went to Egypt where they became known as the Titans.

Did you find Anakim interesting? Add it to a role playing fantasy game, action or adventure story or draw your own doodle. You may find it peculiar to find such a being in the Bible or referenced to it. Well check out the Bible itself to find these beings there; Demons in the Book of Revelations, Goliath the Giant and Angels throughout. You can also watch Hexan (1922) - a great documentary film about Demons and the Church. Then theres the action packed Constantine (2005) and Season of the Witch (2011) filled with Witches, Angels and Demons. The more angelic Wings of Desire (1987) is a good Angel film too.
