Historical Information

In Slavic folklore, the Baba Yaga is a witch-like entity described as a hag who flies around in a mortar, using the pestle as a rudder to steer her movements, and sweeps away her trail with a broom made of silver birch. She is often said to live in a house that moves around atop a pair of dancing chicken legs or has it surrounded by a palisade with skulls on top of each post.

In most tales involving the Baba Yaga, she is often the antagonist, said to kidnap and eat little children. However, on some occasions she will help lost souls, though the requirements of proper preparation and a pure spirit make such help a rarity.
