A Dragon of Russian legend. This Dragon was said to be immortal because he kept his soul outside his body. His soul was in an egg that was kept inside a duck who was in a rabbit. All three were buried under a huge tree in a forest on a desert island. When the Dragon kidnapped the princess Vasiliss, hero Bulat the Brave went of a quest to rescue her. He found the egg and set off to the Dragon’s lair. In a fight against the beast, he smashed the egg on the reptile’s head. With his soul destroyed, the Dragon screeched in agony and died instantly.
