From the Zoroastrian traditions this is the creature born from the source of all evil, Ahriman. It is a long winged three-headed fire-breathing Dragon that ravages the world. Eventually the hero Atar or Thraotona fought with it for several weeks before overcoming it and bounding it in chains of the deepest cave. It is said that the beast will rise again at the end of time and some accounts tell that a hero Keresaspa will defeat it once more.
