Koschey the Deathless

Although he is killed off in virtually every tale e appears in, Koshchey is still known as the deathless, since his soul is kept separate from his body in a secret hiding place (described as an egg – or a needle inside of an agg – inside the ahre in a chest buried under a tree on a romate island in the middle of the ocean). His death can be induced by shattering this egg or (less magically, as in Maria Morevna), a kick to the head by a horse, followed up by stabbing with a sword and dismemberment, derives his name from Slavic “kost” (bone), but anoterh relates it to the root in “koshchun”, one word for sorcerer.

    Wait, am I the only one thinking of soul gems? From Madoka? Because they’re eggshaped?? Because if those were inspired...
