Vila

The Vila are a Slavic tradition.  While there are many versions and names for this creature, they all share the same basic concept; a beautiful woman that changes forms when angry.  Some folklore believes these women to be the ghosts of fair maidens who died before their wedding night.  Despite the many tales of their origin, this enticing creature enjoys luring a weary man to kill him, and often cause storms when their tempers flare.  Below are snapshots of two Vila, both in their beautiful form and their true form.
