The Baba Yaga
The Baba Yaga is one of the mythological monsters you do not hear as much about, due to being part of Slavic folklore. It is often depicted as a supernatural being, usually deformed. Yet it could be a ferocious-looking woman. Usually, it is presented as a witch-like being. The problem is that Baba Yaga could be both a hero and a villain, depending on the story. She will fly around on a mortar and live deep in the forest, and seeking her out could lead to a potential reward or the end of your life. It is recommended not to seek the Baba Yaga out, as the tales surrounding her tell us a one’s life is ended more than rewarded.
