Mentioned in Pyramids, Khefin is the Two-Faced God of Gateways, somewhat similar to Roundworld's Janus. Hoot Koomi is this god's high priest.

Khefin must be one of the few Djelibeybian gods to have made it into the wider Disc consensus, as no less than four constellations of the Zodiac are named after him. In the Ninth House of the Ram, four of the five constellations are named "Khefin's eye", numbered one to four, and may allude to his double-headed, four-eyed status.

Then again "four eyes" suggests a different sort of Kevin...

Well, I've got a cousin named Kevin/ Who's sure to go to Heaven/ Always spotless, clean and neat...."
