El Cipitio is a popular character in Salvadoran legends. He's originally called "Cipit". He got his name from a Nahuatl word, "Cipote" a word used for children in El Salvador. He was the son of Sihuet and her lover. He wears a large straw hat and a blanket over his shoulders that never quite covers his big belly. His feet are twisted backwards so that if villagers try to follow his footprints, they will walk in the wrong direction.
La Siguanaba was an irresponsible mother and left her young son alone while she went around to satisfy her desires. When her and her lover got married he left to war but Tialoc came back to find out she was sleeping with out her men and her leaving their son alone. Tialoc was furious and changed her name to Siguanaba, horrible woman, and put a curse on her. At first she would appear beautiful at first sight, but when men got closer, she'd change into an ugly woman with large floppy breasts hanging to her knees. She would appear to men who travel alone at night in the fields.
Cipitío whistles and throws pebbles and flowers at beautiful girls that go alone to wash clothes in the rivers some younger girls get flattered. It's rumored that when Citipio is annoying to a woman, the best way is to eat in front of a toilet bowl. This disgusts Cipitio that he no longer finds her attractive and leaves her alone.Cipitio is described as a harmless yet obnoxious troublemaker. Villagers blame Cipitio when they wake up and find messes in their kitchen.
