A mystical double of a man from the mythology of the Komi peoples. He appears from the first seconds of the baby's life and accompanies him until death, always being outside the human body. Only bystanders could see it, but not the person himself.

He always looked very much like his master, often doing the same thing that the master did, but it happened that he appeared in the form of a priest, a woman in a yellow dress or a blue light, and sometimes remained invisible, appearing in the form of sound effects. Such an obscure noise, unknown voices, howling, etc., as well as bruises suddenly appearing on the body portends death. So Ort before the death of his master, Ort warned him and his family. The death of the owner was also foreshadowed by the howl of the dog, because they feel orta.

Ort could indicate how a person would die (for example, if he was supposed to die from bullet wounds, then he was seen shooting and heard the pop of a shot).

Interestingly, if Ort was seen without any part of the body (head, arms, legs), then this sign was regarded as a predestination of death. If he was seen as a whole, then death could be avoided.

It was believed among hunters that if it seemed that someone took off his skis, went to the door of the hut, breathed long, but did not enter, then it was ort. And, a little later, if one of the hunters returns to the hut, then death awaits him.

Ort was dangerous to an outsider. If he appeared in the form of a spinning woman, then she could pierce the eye with a spindle to the onlooker. Ort began the persecution of the one who walked under the coffin when it was raised. In this case, the person had to go back again in the opposite direction to pass under the coffin, so that the ort of the deceased left him forever.

He could put a strong spell on people or cattle.

After his death, Ort, while the deceased was being commemorated for a year, wandered to places where the deceased had been. Then the spirit finally goes to the afterlife. Grave grave is marked with a monument on the occasion of this event, and the ort moves into a bird, or transforms into a stone or goes underground into the grave where the owner is buried.

It is believed that the ort of a happy person walks a little ahead of him and warns of danger. Sometimes ort appeared to his double and, if a person does not get lost and he catches him, then happiness will come to his house.
