We are Legion, for we are many.
~ Legion

Legion was a demon described in the Christian Bible and was supposedly a creature composed of many different evil spirits - the demon had taken possession of a man from the ancient Roman town of Gadarenes (Gadara) in Jordan during the travelings of Jesus Christ and the Son of God spoke with the spirit and asked it its name (to which it replied the now famous quote of "My name is Legion, for we are many").

Jesus of Nazareth continued to directly speak with the dark spirit and demanded it to leave the man, the evil spirit was afraid of Jesus' power and did as commanded - taking possession of a herd of pigs instead which promptly ran into the sea and drowned.
