Veles is a “cattle god”, the god of abundance, domestic animals and farmsteads, the assistant of grain growers, patron of the magicians, merchants and artisans. He taught people how to domesticate animals and get milk, meat, skin and wool from them. He is one of the oldest and most important gods of ancient Slavic mythology (along with Perun). He is mentioned in various ancient documents and chronicles.

Veles was also considered the god of art, the patron of poets and musicians. According to the legend, he managed to calm the bloody conflict between the Slavic tribes with his flute. Even Perun didn’t succeed. Therefore, in Magic World, Veles represents the archetype of a creator who can stop fights and wars with his kindness and creativity.
