This is the Big P God. The major all-encompassing thunder deity of the Baltic. He is the one in charge. He wields an axe in a similar way to Thor, and it always returns when he throws it at demons.
He is king of the skies even though his chariot is drawn by goats. They are the Billy Goats Gruff brigade of holy animals, monumental and magnificent.
