Gods and Demons Wiki

Serpents are reptilian beings that appear in several religion and mythologies around the world, quite often being an evil symbol for corruption and deception.

The most famous case in this is that of Samael, who disguised himself as a serpent to trick Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to defy God. Satan also appears in the form of a dragon during the End Times (Dragons in general are sub-variant of serpents)

Outside the Abrahamic faiths serpents are also often seen as bringers of doom, such as Apep and Jörmungandr, massive serpents who symbolize Oruboros.

In Chinese mythology serpents and dragons are seen as more divine/neutral beings, instead of being linked to evil, sin or destruction.
