Slavic Hero God

Son of Mati Syra Zemlya.

Somebody must have poured something other than beer into Moist Mother Earth to produce such a fine strapping lad. He had a plow no-one could lift and could gallop faster than any living being, probably without using a horse.

He joined the Bogatyri as a super hero and despite the Christians trying to belittle him, he is remembered in a big way.
