Serpent, The

Serpent, The: A peripheral character in many myths, some believe that the surface of the world is actually the serpent biting its own tail (he is sometimes called Ouroboros). They believe that the serpent is the chief of Rontra’s servants and that all strength and power, particularly the power of fertility, is given to mortals through the serpent, which contains in it the power of life and death. The more common belief is that Master Korak, who ripped off its legs in an effort to woo Thellyne, created the serpent. These legends hold that it came to Rontra in terrible pain and she took to her bosom. The serpent now visits those in mortal agony and eases their pain.
