Zoroaster (c. 1200 BC) was an ancient Persian figure, and the founder of Zoroastrianism. Zoroastrianism is a dualistic religion, in which two forces, the force of good Ahura Mazda, and Angra Mainyu, the force of evil.

In the end, the force of good and the creator of the universe, Ahura Mazada, will defeat Angra Mainyu. Angels are present in Zoroastrianism, and the concept of one, all-powerful God predates all monotheistic religions but Judaism. How much the original creation of Zorastrianism may have borrowed from Judaism is unknown.
