The "coiled one" in Canaanite mythology, Lotan is a serpent similar to the Leviathan. Lotan served Yam, a sea deity, and fought Hadad-Ba'al, the sky god. The existence of Lotan is significant to the Canaanite mythology of Creation as Lotan represents the void in which light and darkness were separated when he was defeated by Hadad-Ba'al. This is a motif parallel to several other Creation mythologies in ancient Middle East, especially in Egyptian mythology where Lotan is featured as a seven-headed creature. Lotan is a creature of chaos before the orderly creation of the universe.
