The leviathan bears no grudge against the land-dwellers. It simply awakes where it does, basking in the long-sought light and stretching its large, lumbering body.
Leviathan (Biblical hebrew לִוְיָתָן or לווייתן Liwyāthān "coiled") is a violent sea creature that is referred to in the Hebrew Bible as well as the Talmud and some other ancient Jewish texts. During the golden age of seafaring, the term Leviathan became synonymous with any large sea creature, sometimes describing whales. Bible scholars interpreted Leviathan to be either a demonic sea creature and an enemy of God.
The Talmud and other ancient Jewish sources refer to Leviathan more specifically as a sea serpent, sometimes with multiple heads capable of breathing fire, that was made on the fifth day of Creation. It is said that during the end of days, God will make tents, or sukkah, out of the skin of Leviathan for the righteous to live in. Some have speculated that Leviathan was based on a real animal, the most popular theory being the Nile crocodile.
Leviathan is also one of the seven princes of Hell associated with the deadly sin Envy and Hell's gatekeeper in Christian demonology.
In some cultures it is believed that Leviathan lives at the bottom of Mariana Trench.
