KIKIMORA

Slavic Security Spirit

Rather shabby kitchen spirit

She is a scrawny old lady who lives in your house and helps with the housework. She also looks after your chickens, even if you don’t have any.

KIKIMORA tends to lurk behind your stove or in your pantry where she can keep a beady eye on your domestic activities. If you are a slovenly housekeeper, she will punish you by breaking crockery or hiding your favorite jar of pickles. What a horridly judgmental old biddy.

If you suspect your home is harboring a KIKIMORA, there is an easy way to detect her. Just poke around the kitchen until you find a dirty, straggly-haired woman with chicken legs.

She sometimes partners with DOMOVOI and can be a bit henpeckish if early illustrations are anything to go by.
