LAUMESAlso known as LAUMĖS, LAUMAS
Beautiful Spirits of Compassion
Originally a singular Goddess who was a bride of PERKUNAS, she somehow came to Earth and multiplied into a multitude of Baltic Nymphs.
Usually in such cases there's a sinister motive, but with the LAUMES it might just be worth it. To deny them an entry in Godchecker would only leave us open to accusations of sexism.
They are helpful and charitable, especially rewarding impoverished but hard-working people. Like fairies, they also have a darker side, punishing the lazy, evil-doers and guys who can't stop staring at their breasts.
