Slavic mythology: Chernobog, the Black God
His breath; his mind; his shadow; his essence - it is all black; as black as the night; as black as sin. He is the darkness that veils life. He is the broken wings of a fallen hero. He is the blood-curdling curse on a witch’s tongue. He is a child’s greatest fear and blood-shed and everything that is corrupt and evil. He is the imperishable creator of tenebrosity and the villain come forth from the depths of gloom. He is Chernobog, the Black God.
