BALTIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Lithuania, Latvia & Prussia...

VELNIAS

Baltic Evil God

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.
