Lethal Female Water Spirits.

Yes, they are out to get you, using every trick of the trade. Enticement, singing, ambush, skinny-dipping, swift pushes from behind. Once a RUSALKA has you in the river it's time to shiver.

Once a year they spend a week having a spree in the trees of any nearby wooded areas, dancing in the glades and whooping it up in the willows.

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