RUGIEVIT

Slavic Tutelary God

Also known as RUGIEVIT

Rather obscure Lord of Rügen

A local God of Protection on the Isle of Rügen in the Baltic Sea, he’s a savage deity with seven faces and seven swords. No, make that eight. He’s just pulled an extra one from somewhere.

He was popular with the Wends, but nowadays most of the people wending their way to the island are tourists.
