Though many liken strong feelings of rage to dragons, this is an inaccurate assessment. Rather, it is Tiamat who is the source of all fury that has disseminated throughout life on Neotellus. Dragonkind merely bears her influence the strongest. For that reason, not even their anger can match her. Tiamat's indignation can cause the ground to tremble with fear. Those who earn her ire are certainly not long for this world.
In Babylonian mythology, Tiamat is a chaos monster, a primordial goddess of the ocean, mating with Abzû (the god of fresh water) to produce younger gods. It is suggested that there are two parts to the Tiamat mythos, the first in which Tiamat is 'creatrix', through a "Sacred marriage" between salt and fresh water, peacefully creating the cosmos through successive generations. In the second "Chaoskampf" Tiamat is considered the monstrous embodiment of primordial chaos. Although there are no early precedents for it, some sources identify her with images of a sea serpent or dragon. In the Enûma Elish, the Babylonian epic of creation, she gives birth to the first generation of deities; she later makes war upon them and is killed by the storm-god Marduk. The heavens and the earth are formed from her divided body.
