Of the Seven
of the Seven
These spirits derives from ancient Babylon, Mesopotamia (from the beginning of written history circa 3100 BC).
The Seven Evil Spirits, also known as The Seven Maskim, were a group of evil demonic "forces of chaos" that were released and sent as "messengers" by the gods to punish humans for their sins.
The Seven Evil Spirits seem to be primeval entities – offspring of the god Anu, and the evil/dark counterpart of the seven main gods (correspond to the star constellation Pleiades).
The story that features these spirits is the sixteenth tablet of a series called the "Evil Demon Series," of which we have an Assyrian with a parallel Sumerian text. It's considered to be a very ancient legend.

- "missiles" used in a "nuclear war" between 2 gods' descendents
- "high-tech alien weaponry"
