I've been reading about the Maormer King, Orgnum, and everywhere I go it says that he is thought to be the Serpent God of the Satakal. This made me wonder, What is his connection to the God Satakal? Any information would be much appreciated.

Satakal is the Yokudan serpent god and equivalent to the Nordic Alduin. Legends say that Satakal devours himself until he eats his own heart and is then reborn in a new skin. King Orgnum is said to command, mount, and even transform into sea serpents, the symbol of Satakal, as well as being completely immortal. This led to the belief that he was Satakal, or at least an avatar of him.

"To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods."
— The Lays of Ancient Rome
