The prophet Zoroaster taught of a faith in the Creator-God Ahura Mazda and his adversary Ahriman. Evolving out of early Indo-Iranian polytheism, great reverence is shown for the 'eternal law', or, Daena, which espouses good and righteous conduct.

The Zoroastrian religion functions as a polytheistic faith, and is spread throughout all of the greater Persian region and beyond into parts of Assyria and Anatolia. This article documents the yazatas associated with the religion. All values are for Omen.png+100% Omen Power.
