In Russian folklore there are many stories of Baba Yaga, the fearsome witch with iron teeth.  Whenever she appears on the scene, a wild wind begins to blow, the trees around creak and groan and leaves whirl through the air. Shrieking and wailing, a host of spirits often accompany her on her way.

In Slavic mythology, the Zorya are the two guardian goddesses, known as the Auroras or as the Morning Star & the Evening Star. Both sisters serve the sun god Dažbog, who is in some myths described as their father. The Morning Star opens the gates to his palace each morning for the sun-chariot’s departure. At dusk, the Evening Star closes the gates once more after his return.
