Very nice. Russian folklore has quite a rich cast of spirits and creatures. I remember that my first real introduction to them was the excellent adventure game Quest for Glory IV -- Shadows of Darkness (the best of the series), which takes place in a faux-Russian setting populated by domovoi, rusalkas, vampires, leshii, Baba Yaga, and other creatures of Russian tales. It's a shame that these figures aren't more familiar to us, they're really fascinating.
