Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name of this spell is derived from the evil figure of the same name in Iranian mythology, who is also known as Aži Dahāka in the texts of the Avesta and Dahāg/Bēvar-Asp in Middle Persian. Zahhak is described as a monster with three mouths, six eyes, and three heads (presumably meaning three heads with one mouth and two eyes each), cunning, strong and demonic. But in other respects, Aži Dahāka possesses human qualities, and is never a mere animal. In a post-Avestan Zoroastrian text, the Dēnkard, Aži Dahāka is possessed of all possible sins and evil counsels, the opposite of the good king Jam. The name Dahāg (Dahāka) is punningly interpreted as meaning "having ten (dah) sins." His mother is Wadag (or Ōdag), herself described as a great sinner, who committed incest with her son. (Source)
