ZMEY-GORYNICH
Also known as SMEI-GORYNICH

The Man Snake Serpent of the Mountains.

He's sneaky and snaky. We don't know which parts are manly — but we can guess as he abducts maidens.

He has three heads to distinguish himself from all the other Slav dragons (known as ZMEY in Russian) running around out there. He is a known associate of BABA-YAGA and best avoided.
