Slavic Mythology

TRIGLAV

Slavic Divination God

Also known as Triglov, Tribog

God of Prophecy and Sooth-Saying

He has three silver heads but keeps his eyes and mouths covered by a golden veil. This adds to his air of mystery and ensures he doesn’t have to look at or speak to the pilgrims who flock to his golden statue in his temple at Szczecin.

He is also known as Mr Ten Per Cent, which is what he charges for his soothsaying and prophecies.

But strangely enough his black horse does all the work, going through some gymkhana-like event and trotting out the answers folk want to hear. You can’t charge ten percent for bad news can you?
