DOLYA
Also known as DOLA, NEDOLYA

Goddesses of Fate

The DOLYA are female destiny deities who dole out fate to all and sundry. Reports vary from place to place. They may take on the appearance of cats, dogs or even little old ladies hiding under your stove. (Of course the stove is also a classic lurking place for KIKIMORA — it must get pretty crowded under there.)

If you make a wrong decision or try to go against your destiny, a DOLYA is sure to come along and cackle "I told you so". And then torment you terribly.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Dolya graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Dolya movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Dolya statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Dolya. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
