She is the Queen of the ZALTYS — Lithuanian serpent creatures. Actually these are not huge fearsome monsters but small, almost cuddly, grass snakes. We hope this is not a disappointment to you.
EGLE is the heroine of a fantastic folktale which we hope to bring you one day soon. It involves shape-changing reptiles, impossible tasks, a doomed marriage, voyages to the bottom of the ocean, talking cuckoos and serpent nudity.
We certainly won’t spoil the plot, but we can reveal that during the tale she transforms from mortal girl to tree spirit. Now she is a demi-Goddess of Spruce Trees. Remind us to tell you the full story sometime.
