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.
