Azadeh

Persian - A slave girl. On a hunting trip with Bahram, she challenged him to demonstrate his skill as an archer, which he did by shooting a pellet, grazing the ear of an antelope. When the animal raised a hoof to scratch the ear, Bahram fired an arrow pinning the hoof to the ear. Azedah then accused the archer of being Ahriman himself whereupon he knocked her to the ground and trampled her to death under his camel's hoofs. At times, referred to as Azadeh.
