SAINT GEORGE AND THE DRAGON
Saint George is the patron saint of many of Earth's countries and regions, such as England, Ethiopia, Turkey, Canada, Catalonia, China, Georgia, Greece, Montenegro, Palestine, Portugal, Russia, and Serbia!
A famous "George" is immortalized in the myth of St. George and the Dragon, which, in a tiny nutshell, is roughly this:
"The PEOPLE of a village had a very bad conflict with a DRAGON. They appeal to a person named GEORGE to help solve the conflict. George kills the Dragon."
That's the usual version of the story...
