I figure that we could start this up again..... so I'll give the first one.

Known from Ovid's Metamorphoses, this god plays no part in Greek mythology. His name means "he who forms, or molds", and he is mentioned as the son of Hypnos, the god of sleep.

Oh that was simple! :D
Lets see... ah yes:

This deity was mainly worshipped in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. It could be given the title "changing woman" (aww, now you know itís a she :rolleyes: ) as it changes its look and character seasonally. It survived Europe's christianization as a popular character in European folklore.

errr...yeah I think Baba Yaga is Russian...or at least partly Slavic.

"My" goddess is more or less a deity of the west.

Hypnos had 3 sons:

Morpheus who appeared in dreams in human form
Icelos who took beast forms
Phantastus who appeared as inanimate objects.

Ack...Can never think of a good one...
S/he was the source of the veil between the worlds, to the Celts.

S/he did so because of a messy relationship. I don't remember if they were part of this relationship or not.

The only god I associate with Rome's Soldiers is Mithra...

Nope. Maybe this god is identified with Mithra? I'm not sure myself, I'll check.
