Besides this ancient orochi reading, the kanji 大蛇 are commonly pronounced daija, "big snake; large serpent". The life cycle of a Chinese Lóng: egg (1), water snake (2), Kiao (3), Lang (4), Kioh-Lóng (5), Ying-Lóng (6). Raijin has many siblings, most notably, Fujin (the god of wind), Kagutsuchi (the god of fire), Susanoo (the god of the sea and storms), and Amaterasu (the goddess of the sun). From Levantine mythology and Hebrew scriptures. A demonic dragon reigning the waters, a servant of the sea god Yam defeated by the storm god Hadad-Baʿal in the Ugaritic Baal Cycle. Another theory for the origin of the dragon is the association with weather. The philosopher Wang Fu described nine basic properties of the dragon. Dragon formed from shells from the Henan province. In many examples, the serpent god is often seen as multi-headed or multi-tailed. The Chinese Water Dragon is a species of lizard (Physignathus cocincinus). After expulsion from Heaven, Susanoo encounters two "Earthly Deities" (國神, kunitsukami) near the head of the Hi River (簸川), now called the Hii River (斐伊川), in Izumo Province. The c. 680 AD Kojiki transcribes this dragon name as 八岐遠呂智 and the c. 720 AD Nihon Shoki writes it as 八岐大蛇.In both versions of the Orochi myth, the Shinto storm god Susanoo (or "Susa-no-O") is expelled from Heaven for tricking his sister Amaterasu, the sun goddess.
Some dinosaurs found in China were also named after dragons, for example the Mei long and the Dilong paradoxus. The Kojiki tells the following version: So, having been expelled, [His-Swift-impetuous-Male-Augustness] descended to a place [called] Tori-kami (鳥髪, now 鳥上) at the head-waters of the River Hi in the Land of Idzumo. Many consider this to be the egg of its young. Miller (1987:647) criticized Benedict for overlooking Old Japanese "worö 'tail' + suffix -ti – as well as an obvious Tungus etymology, [Proto-Tungus] *xürgü-či 'the tailed one'", and notes "this apparently well-traveled orochi has now turned up in the speculation of the [Indo-European] folklorists (Littleton 1981)." Raijin is also often seen in the company of his brother, Fujin, and his son, Raitaro. He is also shown in the company of Raiju, a thunder-beast or thunder demon.
