You see that creepy scarecrow lady with the bucket head? That’s Kikimora! She enters your home through the keyhole and creeps along the nooks and crannies. But she’s probably going to bring you nightmares and death. The stories never mentioned her deadly spikes…
In Slavic legend, Kikimoras are female house spirits. At night she enters through the keyhole of a home, sits on the sleeping inhabitants’ chests, and strangles them to death.It was wise to leave a key or piece of paper in your door. If your house in orderly and neat, she may actually help out in the home, taking care of dishes and livestock. If your house was a mess, she would further wreck your home, by breaking dishes, or tangling up your needles and thread. Ivan’s not known for keeping a neat and tidy house, he’s a blacksmith afterall, so he’s in for a lot of trouble when he crosses a Kikimora’s path.About Yaga

All the while the mysterious witch, Baba Yaga, watches over Ivan’s fate as he Smashes and clobbers a variety of nefarious monsters and legends inspired by Slavic folk tales.
