A whirlwind spirit from Poland. It can transform into a dwarf or a raven. To kill the whirlwind one must throw a knife into its centre to pierce the heart an kill the spirit inside. In Russia however, the Rarog can be overcome by shouting ‘My belt around your neck!’ to strangle it. Similar to Vikhor.
