|Children||First generation of deities in Babylonian Mythology|
Is a primordial 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.
Tiamat originates from the Babylonian mythology. She was first mentioned in writer Berossus' first volume of universal history.
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.
