It’s a
primordial monster demon of the seas and king of beasts. It is described as a
huge whalelike creature, almost invulnerable. He would rise to the surface and
fool sailors into thinking his huge bulk was actually land. When the ships were
close, he would drag them down and sink them. In some legends, Leviathan has
two aspects: male ( Leviathon, the Slant Serpent) and female ( Lilith, the
Tortuous Serpent)
