A Siberian Dragon with dark black wings able to cover the entire sky. He lives above the earth and occasionally attacks the sun and the moon. The patterns on the moon are said to be the marks left by the attacking Alklha. Whenever an eclipse occurred it was believed to be the Alklha attacking the sun and so people would throw stones in the air to discourage it. The gods eventually cut the creature in two and put on half in heaven and the other on the earth preventing the Alklha from consuming the sun or moon.
