Baltic Pig God

Also known as KREMARA

He loves pigs — particularly for dinner

KREMATA is a deity of pork butchery. He works in conjunction with his colleague PRIPARCHIS, who helps raise happy and healthy piglets.

KREMATA coddles the porker until slaughter time. Then you pour beer into the fire to invoke a blessing.

We are not sure what the pig gets out of all this.
