VELNIAS

Devilish Trickster God of Evil

God of Evil and brother of Creator God DIEVAS.

An Underworld God from Lithuania that needs warding off. He is not too bright, and is not even sure what his real name is, but he knows his job is to be Mr Nasty.

If you see him coming, there is only one thing you can do. Shout "PERKUNAS is behind you!' and hide behind a tree when he turns to look. It fools him every time.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Velnias graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Velnias movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Velnias statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Velnias. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
