PATOLLO

Prussian Underworld God

Also known as Peckols, Patollu, Patollus, Pikollos, Picollos, PIKUOLIS

Very angry Prussian God of Death

He is an old man with a white beard and a fierce temper. Do not mock — he could squash you any old day of the week.

He was one of the main deities of the old Prussians along with PERKUNAS and PATRIMPAS. Probably. Maybe. He may even have been two of them – there is some suggestion he may be a conglomeration of two Gods called PECKOLS and PATOLLO.

Little is now known about old Prussian deities, and what there is could be invention, speculation — or simply plain wrong. Perhaps that explains why he is so angry.
