 Mythography | The Greek God Pan in Myth and Art
Pan, the god of woods and fields, of flocks and shepherds, dwelt in grottos, wandered on the mountains and in valleys, and amused himself with the chase or in leading the dances of the nymphs.
Pan, like other gods who dwelt in forests, was dreaded by those whose occupations caused them to pass through the woods by night, for the gloom and loneliness of such scenes dispose the mind to superstitious fears.
As the name of the god signifies all, Pan came to be considered a symbol of the universe and personification of Nature; and later still to be regarded as a representation of all the gods of paganism itself.

Greek god of the pasture-fields, herds and herdsmen, Pan was also identified with Dionysos, god of gaiety and merriment.
Woods and plains, hunting and fishing were under his immediate care and patronage, and he was also associated with music, playing the reed pipes that became known as the pipes of Pan, the story being that the god had fallen in love with a beautiful nymph called Syrinx, but she was transformed into a reed.
Pan then cut and shaped the reed, and fashioned from it pipes that gave forth such haunting and wonderful music that he was once moved to challenge Apollo to a musicians' contest, over which Midas presided, judging the god of fields to be the better player.

 Mythology's Mything Links: Eastern Europe / Pan Slavic Traditions & Beliefs
Slavic mythology has a strong focus on the sun, warmth, light, birds, fire (and firebirds), epic victories, and brightly painted cosmic bird-eggs.
The opposing polarity, the dark, the dead, the cold, the gloomy forests, snakes, drowned spirits (usually female or children), and ruthless hags are feared, even demonized (especially under the influence of Christianity), yet many fairy tales indicate that if this darker world is treated with cautious respect, one will fare well.
Although the psychologically rich story is Czech, not Pan Slavic, it reads like something that could have taken place in many ancient Slavic realms.
