Tugarin Zmeyevich

Is a monster which personifies evil, cruelty and appears in the form of a bogatyr (Russian knight) with dragon like features and personality. When he approaches another knight to do battle he hisses like a serpent and his horse makes the sound of a beast. He wears many writhing deadly and firey snakes which represent the element of fire of which Tugarin Zmeyevich is a part. Zmeyevich can choke people with smoke or throw fire at others to burn them to death. He may also take the form of a dragon, able to fly in the sky which fail when it rains.
