A giant hundred-headed dragon from Greek mythology. It was born from Echidna and Typhon where each of its heads is of a different color and is said to be able to talk. It sleeplessly guards the Golden Apple at Hesperides, which were a wedding gift to Zeus and Hera from Gaia. According to certain accounts, Ladon was killed by Heracles in order to steal the Golden Apples it was guarding by using an arrow soaked with the poisonous blood of a Hydra. It is also said that following its death, Ladon was raised to the heavens by Hera and became the constellation Draco.
