KOSCHEI
Also known as KOSCHEI-BESSMERTNYI

Bad old God of Regeneration

Deathless damsel-snatching deity of death and rebirth.

He's the lean, very mean horseman known as 'Old Bones'. Despite his skeletal appearance he moves like greased lightning when it comes to snatching maidens and bearing them off to wherever he lives. They quite often get rescued though.

His mother — or possibly auntie — is the old Death Goddess BABA-YAGA.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Koschei graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Koschei 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 Koschei statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Koschei. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
