Saint George and The Dragon

There is an old tradition in the Greek Orthodox Church 
that angels could fall until the 1st Coming of Christ 
By Christ’s 1st Coming, the choices they made would then be their eternal decision and destination forever more.
Just as for mortal humans, they have until the moment of their own death or until Christ’s 2nd Coming (whatever comes first) to decide their eternal fate

And so even though Lucifer and a large portion of the angels fell in a Cosmic rebellion against the Creator of the Cosmos
Yet other angels fell afterwards 
Until Christ’s 1st Coming.

And so it was that a Watcher angel called Semjaza 
landed with 199 other Watcher angels 
on Mount Hermon 
on what is today the Israel-Lebanon-Syria border region 

They saw that the daughters of men were fair 
(Unlike today where a lot of the daughters of men are quite repulsively ugly and require a Pan Goatee to bump them off in order to restore Earth’s aesthetic balance)
And desired to mate with them

Semjaza got the other 199 to swear an oath upon Mount Hermon 
That he wouldn’t be the only one to participate in this angelic sin of mating with human women 

In addition to mating with mortal women
Semjaza also made out with the ancient Babylonian vampiress Lilith
And she gave birth to Azazel

Azazel son of Semjaza and Lilith
Became the leader of the Watchers and the Nephilim
And taught humanity both war and witchcraft 

Later Azazel was bound hand and foot by the Archangel Raphael
And chained to the rough and jagged rocks of Dudael
which is east of Jerusalem 

But before that happened Azazel along with other Watcher angels and Nephilim
were engaging in genetic experiments and tampering with DNA of different species 
(As Christ said, “Behold as it was in the days of Noah, so it shall be at the Coming of the Son of Man”)

Azazel took a fossilized skull of an old T-Rex 
The fossilized body, wings and legs of a pterodactyl
The poisonous venom of a Basilisk
And the ability to breathe fire like from the mouth of the Middle Kingdom Phoenix bird (or Chinese Phoenix)
Put them together 
And created a hybrid monster of all those species 

Azazel threw this monster into the sea waters off Lebanon
Where it mainly fed on marine life
By the 200s AD however the dragon (for that is what it resembled most in appearance) was sunning itself on the beach when a mortal human maiden approached 
It ate her and developed a penchant for female human flesh 
So people up and down the coasts of Lebanon
Were forced to give their young females to the dragon as a sacrifice 
to prevent the dragon from running amuck 
And breathing fire down on their towns and villages 

A young woman called Sabra 
then found herself chained to a rock 
Awaiting the approach of the dragon 
one fine day in the late 290s AD

A young Roman soldier called George 
came along riding a white horse 
And slew the Dragon with his sword 
when it approached Sabra

George himself was later slain by the Roman Emperor Diocletian (a human that was very much in personality like a demonic dragon) 
for refusing to renounce his Christian faith

The death of George occurred on April 23rd 303 AD 
in Nicomedia 
The capital of ancient Bithynia 
Which later served as an interim capital 
for Constantine the Great 
while the city of Byzantium was being rebuilt and later became Constantinople.
