Čert occurs in many fairy tales and legends. On 5th December we can find him strolling the streets together with Angel and Mikuláš

origins: pre-Christian Slavic mythology, after arrival of Christianity equated with the devil 
appearance: his main attributes are tail, hooves, horns and looking kind of burned
personality of Czech Čert: we can’t be sure if he’s really evil because he punishes mainly mean people while the kind he awards with money or magic items
place of occurrence: while hemakes frequent appearances on earth, trying to acquire souls of sinners, his true home is hell; Czech hell has simple hierarchic structure with Lucifer ruling over lower Čerts
Čert’s job: he offers specific services or benefits to humans in exchange for their soul; this is all signed on a note (with your own blood) and when the deadline expires, he comes back and carries you to hell; still Čert can be tricked which is a plot-twist of many fairy tales
special abilities: Čert can fly and thus move himself from place to place with an impressive speed, he also makes this sound (more scarier, deeper version)
