    hehe, yeah...I just figured that if anyone on the board had any idea, it would be you. But I guess there are more important things in life than long-forgotten gods. Unless you're reading American Gods, of course...

    I *think* he's Bulgarian or possibly Romanian. either way, he's waaaaay more slavic than me. I'm not even Indo-European, just happen to come from a country bordering Russia :P

    Never heard of Perun, although it does sound a bit similar to the Estonian Pikker or Pikne (the latter meaning literally "Lightning") which is the other and less used name of the main god known as Taara or Tharapita - again, the latter version some say is actually "Taara, abista!" (Thor, help!). Pikker is usually portrayed as a tall young-ish and rash man, with a temper just like lightning, while Taara is usually old and wise. A third name for the same god is Uku, Uku is usually portrayed as strong and level-headed, a man in his prime.

    But then again, I don't know very much about Slavic mythology, particularly the Kiev Slavic, it's too much to the south. adbf might know more.

    Do you know anything about Perun? You are the only member with Slavic background that I can think of. If so, would be interested to hear what you have to say on the parallels.
