The celestial Dragon of Babylonian and Mesopotamian myth. It is described as being red in colour and possessing seven heads. It was born from the sinister goddess Tiamat and was set upon defeating Marduk in battle with its ten other monstrous siblings. Tiamat and the ten creatures were eventually defeated and the wounded Mashmahhu became the mount for Marduk. Mashmahhu is one of the eleven creatures born from the goddess Tiamat. Together the monsters tried to overcome Marduk but they were all defeated. A modern day Satanic cult called The Temple of Black Light contains a ritual for sorcerers call upon the power of Tiamat to summon Mashmahhu and the other ten creatures in a sacrificial ritual of eleven black candles.
