The feline ancestor of the Juruna, a tribe living along the Xingu River in Brazil. Sinaa is the offspring of an enormous jaguar and a woman, and both father and son have eyes set in the back of their heads. Each time Sinaa grows old, he takes a bath, pulling his skin off over his head and thus becoming young again.

Juruna legend has it that the end of the world will be brought about by Sinaa when he finally decides to pull down the enormous forked stick that supports the sky.
