Ancient Canaan (Middle East) believed in a powerful Sea Beast called The ''Lotan''. A ''Demon Servant'' of The God ''Yam'', Lotan is akin to The Judaic Legend of ''Leviathan''. Lotan lived in The ''Dead Sea'' and terrorized people there. The people of The Region ''prayed'' for help from The God Hadad – who struck down Lotan with a bolt of lightning. The tale bears some similarity to Leviathan's demise at The ''Will'' of Yaweh (God).
