Godchecker's mythology encyclopedia

Also known as INARAS

Protector Goddess of all Wild Animals. Except dragons, which she has a tendency to obliterate.

In particular, she clobbered the dragon ILLUYANKAS, who with his own family was causing much aggravation. INARA, with the aid of her human lover Hupasiyas, laid on a dragon's feast. There was booze by the barrel-load and calories by the cartload.

The dragons came early, ate everything in sight and drank themselves into a stupor. Then Hupasiyas roped them down and they were dispatched.

With the reward money, INARA built Hupasiyas a heavenly penthouse. But she warned him he must never look out of the window. Of course he just couldn't resist and saw his wife and children all alone and pining. So INARA, who had a very hard Hittite heart, just had to eliminate him and put the penthouse on the market.

After consultation with HANNAHANNA, she found herself another lover and also some land to make love to him on. Which sounds like the cue for a happy ending. Only she went missing and not even HANNAHANNA's magic bee probe could find her again.
