Russian Fairy Tales


A wicked hag who is made of shadow and has eyes which glow an eerie red, she smells of forest moss as she comes from the dark shadowy forest and her voice is horrible and screeching. which torments children at night unless a mother places a knife under the child’s cradle or draws a circle around it with the knife as fairy and demon like creatures have trouble touching iron which is toxic to them. The Nocnitsa sits on a persons chest and draws the life energy out of them until they die. If she does not kill a person on her first visit she will continue to visit the same person until they finally pass away. She feeds on human depression and sorry, growing ever more powerful the more she drains a person. Thus a person who is being attacked by a Nocnitsa must fight back.
