The background story of Defenders of Oasis is based on ancient Iranian mythology. Unfortunately, some names are not spelled very precisely and suggest a slightly wrong pronunciation, for example Zahhark instead of Zahak and Jamseed instead of Jamshid. You can read about Ahriman, his servant, the dragon Zahak, the legendary king Jamshid and his descendant, the brave Faridun, in the famous epic poem Shahnameh by the great Iranian poet Ferdowsi.
