Czop was a journeyman blacksmith and Mikula's assistant in the smithy for the village of Klucz. He was described as being young and chubby in his brief appearance in the short story Droga, z której się nie wraca (included in Something Ends, Something Begins). Czop was killed when one of Koshchey's Men, a vran, throws its glaive at him, embedding it in his neck.

He also appears in the graphic novel Droga bez powrotu, based upon the Droga, z której się nie wraca short story. In this version, Czop remains largely true to his description in the short story, with the exception that he is not pictured as being chubby. His death remains unchanged.
