The crowned king -- charm for bracelets (Trollbeads, Pandora, etc.)
A Zmei Gorynich or zmey (Russian: змей), in Skazka (Russian folktales) and Bylina (epic poetry), is a dragon or serpent, or sometimes a human-like character with dragon-like traits.
Zmei Gorynych and Tugarin Zmeyevich are well-known zmei, and appear as adversaries to the bogatyri (heroes) Dobrynya Nikitich or Alyosha Popovich.
The word zmei in Russian is the masculine forms of zmeya, a feminine noun, meaning "snake".
The zmei is often depicted with multiple heads, and the number of heads may be 3, 6, 9, or 12.
I many tales, when a hero cuts off one head the dragon grows two more instead, so defeating it is hard and needs much savvy.
