Slavic God of Misfortune, Chernobog is cursed by humans as The Black God as he is always a prophet of bad events. Of Bogi Lyudei's divinities, he is most certainly the most feared.

Chernobog has a repulsive aspect, with grey scales all over his body and yellow eyes he looks like a lizard in clothes. This clearly does not help those who receive him to understand and appreciate his actions.

Born from his mother Dziewona and his father Veles, along with his twin brother Belobog, he inherited some of his father's traits, including his sense of cunning and intelligence. He and his brother share the same goal: bringing prosperity to the humans they wish to protect. But unlike his idealistic brother, Chernobog does it with a less lifted heart and he understands the need of bringing bad fortune to some people so that the others can enjoy their own good fortune.

The two siblings are bound by Fate to fight against each other for all eternity. One could think that such a rivalry would be forbidden amongst Gods of the same pantheon. But their rivalry is essential in order to maintain the existence of Fate. Like a river flows between her shores, Fate flows between the odds created by Belobog and Chernobog's fight. Such power could be tempting to use and dominate others, but their rivalry is internal to the Bogi Muzhchin and they are both benevolent and protective Gods. But should they use their powers to shape reality to their will, every other pantheon is ready to take them down despite the great cost of such action.

Chernobog often fathers Godborns who, like him, are also pragmatic and benevolent at the same time. Like him, they understand that one man's joy is another man's sorrow. As bass players in a metal band, a journalist specialized in crime syndicates, merciless vigilantes or cursed poets, Chernobog's children make the World a better place piece by piece at the cost of their reputation.
