In Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion series, the Symbol of Chaos comprises eight arrows in a radial pattern (in contrast, the symbol of Law is a single upright arrow). It is also called the Arms of Chaos, the Arrows of Chaos, the Chaos Star or the Symbol of Eight. Moorcock conceived this symbol while writing the first Elric of Melniboné stories in the early 1960s. It was thereafter adopted into the pop-cultural mainstream, turning up in such diverse places as role-playing games and modern occult traditions.
