The Top Baltic Thunder God
This is the Big P God. The Major All-encompassing Top Thunder God of the Baltic.He is the one in charge. He wields an axe in a similar way to THOR, and it always returns when he throws it at demons.
He is king of the skies even though his chariot is drawn by goats. They are the Billy Goats Gruff Brigade of goats, monumental and magnificent.
As a major deity of extreme importance, PERKUNAS has many names and stories associated with him. We also have him listed under his Slav equivalent PERUN. A god like this can always be run past you again.
