Tiamat Edit

Is a primordal Babylonian goddess of the ocean and personification of chaos. She gave birth to the first generation of gods, and later, she was killed by the storm god, Marduk. From her divided body came the heavens and the Earth.

Origin Edit

Tiamat originates from the Babylonian mythology. She was first mentioned in writer Berossus' first volume of universal history.

AppearanceEdit

Tiamat has the appearance of a dragon or a serpent. Sometimes, she is multi-headed, due to modern influences from the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game.

In Popular CultureEdit

Board GamesEdit

  • In Dungeons & Dragons(abbreviated as D&D or DnD), Tiamat is a powerful draconic goddess with multiple heads.

Video GamesEdit

  • In the Final Fantasy series, Tiamat is a recurring boss or summon. She is, like in D&D, a multi-headed draconic creature, but has a bipedal body.
  • In Darksiders, Tiamat appears as a gigantic batqueen and has a mini-boss role.
