Strakh is one of two deadly spirits that haunt the forests of Bohemia according to traditional belief. His counter part is Tras. His name means Terror and the name of Tras means Tremor. Together they cause strike pain and fear into many a person. These Demons partake in warfare where they emerge from their gloomy woodland abode shrieking in anger as they rush towards the enemy. They then grip each foe by the throat and cry out a heart piercing cry to terror them.
