A Giant from Armenia that captured slaves in his castle. He once took the brother of three fairies as his slave and no one succeeded in rescuing them. A youth called ‘the apprentice’ asked if he could have eleven goblets from the King to kill Azrail. The King happily gave him this as well as a mace and a suit of armour. The apprentice went to the castle but was spotted by two serpent beasts that guarded the Giant. As they began to attack the apprentice, they became distracted. The apprentice used this opportunity to kill them. Hearing the noise of this fight, Azrail came on his horse armed with seven weapons including a bow and arrow. The two fought a ferocious fight but the apprentice managed to knock the Giant from his horse and struck two blows. As Azrail lay injured on the ground he barked at the apprentice to finish him off. The apprentice had learned that a third injury on Azrail would restore the Giant’s strength. The hero thus left him bleeding and rescued the slaves.
