Behram in Persian mythology, is the Ized of fire, the king of all beings,with a shining body, the assistant of Ardibehesht against the Deos. Behram appears in all possible forms, and is represented as the all penetrating, enlivening, and fructifying power. Thus, in the form of the wind, he loosens the fetters of winter; as a bull, he crushes the evil with his power; as a ram (the noblest Oriental symbol), he is represented as adorned with golden ears and horns; as a lamb (a symbol of abundance), he represents the wealth of pastoral people; as a horse, symbol of swiftness. He is also depicted as a camel, and as the bird of Ormuzd. Finally, as a youth, with flaming eyes, continually in victorious battle against the evil, he is one of the mightiest genii on the side of light. Behram is also the planet Mars.
