ILLUYANKAS

Hittite Dragon who defeated the Storm God in battle and generally made a nuisance of himself.

It was left to INARA to get rid of him, which she did by getting him drunk on a full stomach.

That should be the end of the story, but dragons make such good stories that ILLUYANKAS appeared in many legendary follow-ups — with more twists and turns than a dragon's tail.
