Fairies and spirits are spoken of in tales all across the world. Little, mischievous creatures that wreak havoc or offer help - always as they see fit, and only sometimes when you truly need it.

While they are shape shifters, and could take the form of anything from a cat to a mouse to a snake, one of their more common forms is that of a little old man. Much like brownies, domovoi can be incredibly useful; if they like you, they will help you with chores, feed your animals while you are away, and protect your home from robbers.
