The Rogue, Harbinger of Doom
Slavic / Christian
Chernobog (father), Morana (mother)
Chort is typically portrayed as an anthropomorphic being resembling traditional Christian representations of lesser demons, i.e. with horns, hooves and a long, skinny tail. Is also somewhat of a shapeshifter, but can still be detected by those familiar with Chort's true form. Etymologically, the name "chort" suggests that one of this demon's legs might be shorter than the other.
