Morozko  (Frost)

Frost is depicted as appearing human like but as being much more extreme in emotions and actions then humans. In one tale Frost is depicted as being two brothers chasing people through the frozen fields in  order to freeze them and thus they make sport of Russia’s peasants. In another tale frost freezes a girl to death for complaining that she is cold. This is important for frost will do whatever it can to get a person to moan about the cold, those who are strong and don’t complain are comforted and warmed by frost, allowed to live. Frost can be seen as a tester, one who weeds out the weak.
Frost is depicted as either running through the frozen fields or jumping from tree to tree snapping his fingers.
