Also known as Bahram, Warahan and Vehram, he is a Persian/Iranian god of victory. His name in the avestan language is vərəθraγna which means "smiting of resistance," and so he is the deification of victory itself. He was the epithet of Indra and was the god of "Vrahran Fire," victory and aggressive triumph. While his own epithet Bahram is the god of planets and victory. Bahram serves under Asha while Verethragna serves under Sraosha and helped him raise the souls of the decease from their corpse.
Verethragna punishes the evil done by man and demon alike and takes many forms in myth: boar, bird of prey, bull, camel, youth, warrior with a golden blade, wind and more. In later Persian texts, Bahram achieved the status of Amesha Spenta after he was able to push Ahriman back into hell. In the Zoroastrian calendar, the twentieth day of the month is dedicated to Bahram.
