Baba Jaga (Baba Yaga, also known by various other names)This is one of my favourite characters from slavic folklore. Baba Jaga is a witch - she almost always appears as an ugly, old woman with sagging breasts, one leg skeleton-like, other made of wood, often blind or with bad vision. She was belived to be living in the woods in a hut standing on chicken legs. She was sometimes accompanied by owl, snake, crow or a cat. She would kidnap people that got lost in the forests, especially children, and eat them. She was said to be causing various sicknesses. However, sometimes she is appearing as a good character, helping people and curing their ilnesses.
