A malevolent pagan lord in the Serbo-Russian Povestí o Tryshchane.
He was known to greet cordially any knight who arrived at his island. At night, however, the Foul Heathen would viciously torture him. Tristan (Tristram) learned of these customs and traveled to the Foul Heathenís island. When the Foul Heathen discovered the identity of his visitor, he did not enforce the custom.
Later, he reconsidered, and had his knights seize Tristan, who was unarmed. Palamedes happened by and gave Tristan a sword. The two knights together slew all of the Foul Heathenís warriors. The Foul Heathen himself escaped by fleeing into a church.
