A water creature of Russia who had many appearances. Mostly he would appear as an old man with a blue face, grey hair and white beard. He would also appear as a log covered in moss, giant and ugly fish or as an old furry or scaly man with glowing eyes, paws, horns and tail. Depending on the stages of the moon, he would appear younger or older. He tried to lure his victims into the water to consume them. People such as fisherman and others who worked with water would appease this creature by offering him a cockerel.
