Deities & Heros >> Slavic
eternal flames, thunder storm, silver hair, moustaches


Author: Obsidian

Pan-Slavonic. God of lightning, thunder, storm and (probably) war, and one of the eight primary deities. He was patron of nobility and of armies. His sacred day is Thursday. He is lord of the mountains and the forest (his tree is the oak). He was represented as a man with silver hair and golden moustaches, armed with stones and arrows. His images were accompanied by eight eternal flames, bonfires or at least torches, as the case may be. Note a considerable number of parallels with the Norse Thor. In Christian times he became conflated with St.Ilya (Elias).
