Trogdor (5)

عادل (Adil) means fair, honest, and just in Arabic. This was the goal of The Burninator after being asked to join the Ancient Order of the Whills in April 200_. Dragons have a diverse reputation in world mythologies; they can represent evil or chaos, such as the Babylonian Tiamat. Níðhöggr, who gnawed at the World Tree, was a Nordic conception of a dragon.

לִוְיָתָן (Leviathan) is a dragon in Hebrew mythology that may be a sea monster, a guardian of Hell, or merely representative of the sea, which may itself be representative of Chaos.

(The) Satan appears as a great red dragon in the Christian book of Apocalypse (Revelation/That Which is Revealed).

Dragons are usually separated in terms of East and West, but there are nearly as many dragons in folklore as there are folks with lore, and it is an over-simplification to say Western dragons are generally evil while Eastern dragons are generally good or at least neutral.

While in contrast to European dragons, which are considered evil, Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon also being a symbol of power, strength, and good luck. But Yamata no Orochi was the villainous "Eight-Forked (headed) Serpent," and Ouroboros ate his own tail and was thought to represent not chaos, but cycicality, and Xiuhcoatl was the spirit form of the Aztec fire deity, representative merely of the dry season.

Although a moderator, there was some character development came along with the persona of Adil. Mainly, he was an incarnation of the abstract idea of various aspects of reality being both discordant and, nonetheless, true, i.e., paradox. He was both completely flesh (albeit dragon flesh) and spirit. Those who ate him were healed and imbued with Ashla, turned from all darkness. Every cut he received healed someone else at random. He was 99 m in length, but could change to any size or appearance faster than one could say "I". He was both inside and outside of you, a figment of your imagination as you were of his, and despite being depicted as Trogdor from Strong Bad, he had, besides his beefy arms, something like 200 pair of legs. Never was there was Wyrm so bad, nor so good.

RIP, Adil.
