"SAMOVILA" IS A SLAVIC NATURE GODDESS, A GODDESS OF THE WOODLANDS WHO RULES THE FOREST AND PROTECTS ALL THE ANIMALS THAT LIVE WITHIN THE WOODLANDS. SHE ALSO GUARDS THE PLANTS AND CLEANS THE STREAMS OF RUBBLE. SHE IS USUALLY DEPICTED AS A WINGED GODDESS WHOSE DRESS SHIMMERS IN THE SUNLIGHT THAT GLIMMERS THROUGH THE TREES. HER GOLDEN HAIR FALLS TO HER FEET. SHE IS RENOWNED FOR HER SINGING AND DANCING.

SHE IS KNOWN TO CAUSE GREAT HARM TO ANY MORTAL WHO ABUSES--OR WORSE YET, KILLS--HER CREATURES. FOR PUNISHMENT SHE MIGHT MUTILATE OR DROWN THE OFFENDER IN THE RIVER. OTHER TIMES, SHE HAS BEEN KNOWN TO LURE THEM INTO A MAGICAL CIRCLE WHERE SHE THEN DANCES THEM TO DEATH. OR, SHE MIGHT BURY HIM IN ROCKS BY STARTING AN AVALANCHE.

SAMOVILA IS A SHAPESHIFTER WHO CAN TRANSFORM HERSELF INTO ALMOST ANY ANIMAL--SNAKE, SWAN, FALCON, HORSE. SHE CAN, AND WILL TEACH THIS SKILL TO DEVOTEES WHO ARE WORTHY OF LEARNING HER SKILLS.

SHE WAS BORN ON A DAY OF SOFT, MISTY RAIN AT THE EXACT TIME WHEN THE SUN HAD FORMED A RAINBOW ACROSS THE TREES. SAMOVILA HAD A PROFOUND KNOWLEDGE OF THE SECRETS OF HEALING AND HERB CRAFT. SHE MIGHT AGREE TO TEACH A HUMAN HER SKILLS, BUT ONLY IF THEY ARE WORTHY AND IF THE PROPER CEREMONY IS PERFORMED. THE APPLICANT MUST APPEAR IN THE WOODS BEFORE SUNRISE ON A SUNDAY OF A FULL MOON. AND, BECAUSE OF HER KNOWLEDGE OF PLANTS AND HERBAL MEDICINES, SHE A FAVORITE AMONG KITCHEN WITCHES.
