Also known as AIJO, AJATTARA

A picture showing the legend of AJATAR taken from our Finnish mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Finnish Gods, Finnish Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

The Devil Mother Dragon of the Woods

She is an evil spiritess who haunts the woods. The mother of the Devil in dragon form, she suckles snakes, raises serpents and breast-feeds beasts.

Beware of her presence — her pox-ridden pestilential body is host to a myriad of infections. If you so much as peek in her direction, a multitude of diseases will descend upon you.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ajatar graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ajatar movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Ajatar statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ajatar. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
