Tiamat is an alien weapon.
Around the second millennium BCE, the alien Tiamat was set loose on Earth to end the conflict between chaos and order by destroying the world. The gods of Mesopotamia, not wanting the status quo to be challenged, chose the demigod Marduk to battle her. Wielding the power of lightning and rain, and the Tablet of Destiny, Marduk defeated the alien creature and locked her away, but gave his life in the process.
