AZHI DAHAKA

Zoroastrian fabulous creature

Also known as Aži Dahāka, Azi Dahaka

The three-headed dragon who is hell-bent on destroying the world

Spawn of the wicked Ahriman, who created it as a Weapon of Mass Destruction, Azhi Dahaka went on a terrible rampage too horrific to describe. However, thanks to the intervention of Atar, it’s now safely chained up.

But how safe is safe? And what’s to prevent Ahriman spawning another one? You just can’t trust these evil Gods of Mass Terrorism. What this world really needs is an Independent Dragon Inspectorate.
