Veles

This is my interpretation of Veles, also known as Volos, in the Slavic Cosmology, is a major deity of earth, waters and the underworld, associated with dragons, animals and trickery. He is the opponent of the Supreme thunder-god Perun, and the battle between two of them constitutes one of the most important roles of Slavic Cosmology. In some accounts, he's been imagined as (at least partially) serpentine, with horns (of a bull or ram), and a long beard.

Veles is also regarded as the personification or the one who detains the concept of 'Nav', that could be simplified as 'world of thoughts', which is in turn related to the underworld itself (sometimes called Iriy).
