The idea for characters in ancient myths: Orochimaru/Kukulkan
I was watching tv few days ago and came across something interesting. It was about ancient gods and mythology. One of the gods who was mentioned in the show was Kukulkan a.k.a "Plumed Serpent" or "Feathered Serpent".
I immediately thought of Orochimaru because of several similarities... Read it all. It's very interesting.
This is obvious. Orochimaru is also represented as some kind of snake master and he himself looks like a snike.
When Orochimaru fought with Hiruzen. Hiruzen found that Oro isn't human.

It was obvious what he is when he fought Sasuke.
Sacrificing humans as test subjects is kind of Oro's hobby. He does it for personal interest.
So, that is also one of similarities Oro has with Kukulkan.
The part where it says that Kukulkan flew to the Sun and the Sun burnt his tongue, may represent Oro as Kukulkan ofcourse and Hiruzen as Sun who burned his tongue/disabled his arms.
And part with sister may be explanation for Oro's past and why he attacked Konoha. Becasu sister is family member it can also represent his parents.
Biggest similarity Oro has with Kukulkan is this.
He also comes out from snakes mouth.
I hope you like it. Your thoughts?
