In Georgian mythology, the Gvelisperi is mentioned and described as a huge reptile that helps the deities. Snake color is represented by a chained snake or dragon. Gvelisperi selflessly fights to protect the deity, destroys his enemies, and helps the deity's loyal servants in times of need. Unchained, the serpent often punishes disobedient worshipers of the deity severely. TheGvelisperi serves not the gods, but the children of the god on duty, called Khvtisshvili, i.e. God's childs, his children (sons). God had a total of 3000 descendant and each one lived for 17,000 years. The reason for their birth and the main purpose was to protect them from human invasion. It was Gvelisperis work to help God's childs.
