DOMOVOI
Also known as DOMOVIK, DOMOVOI, DOMOVOY, DOMANIA, DĔDEK

Annoying guardian spirit of home surveillance

This is a domestic guardian for your dwelling or domain. He lives under your doorstep and acts as a watchman, smoke alarm etc.

Your DOMOVOI is a hairy bearded character something like a brownie. He is benevolent and kind — provided that you keep the house clean and do not swear. And always leave a spare snack in the fridge.

Like a slightly disreputable Big Brother, he is always watching you from behind the scenes. Don't offend him or he could burn your house down. He likes doing things like that.

If you feel you can live without the services of your DOMOVOI, there is not a lot you can do — apart from getting violent with a broom. His partner in the household irritation business is KIKIMORA. And it doesn't stop there — his cousin DVOROVOI does much the same in your back yard. Just hope you don't have an infestation.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Domovoi graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Domovoi 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 Domovoi statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Domovoi. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
