Heroic Fire God of Dragon-bashing and Foiling EvilAZHI-DAHAKA. This had been created specifically to create anguish, cause pain, deal out death and finally destroy the Universe.
After several million years, ATAR managed to corner the dragon and chain it to a mountain. It is still snarling, wrenching and chewing up anything that ventures within reach.
A horrible feeling prevails that the chains won't last for another million years. Has ATAR taken early retirement?
