Have you heard of the rusalka? Rusalkas are water spirits of eastern Europe. These days they are considered dangerous, but were once regarded as benevolent. Nowadays it is said they will lure men into the water and drown them. They are very beautiful, with green or golden hair. They will sometimes set upon a human of any type and will tickle him or her to death. They are under the rule of male creatures called vodyanies who often look ugly and are on the fat side. Of them it is believed that if you drown near one, he will eat you and put your soul in a jar.
