Storm God of Thundery Weather.He spends most of his time hurtling around in his chariot littering the skies with forked lightning. He is also a God of Divination, manipulating entrails and rigging dice to convey future info to the wise.
He was one of seventy children and if, as some claim, his mother was ASHERAH, she must have taken a trip to the seaside because his father was some obscure Sea Deity with a name like 'Prince of the Sea' or 'Deep Sea Doohdah'. ADAD destroyed him anyway with a total wipeout, so we shall never know.
