Household spirits of Slavic tradition. They are similar to Brownie in that they stay with one owner and do all the chores around their house of which they are paid with a saucer of milk or some bread. They are very friendly and helpful but if you anger them they will cause many problems such as misplacing items, making clean things dirty and playing tricks. If infuriated with an individual they will murder them by sitting on their face while their victim sleeps to suffocate them to death. If they are seen playing music on a comb then this is a fortuitous omen that marriage will soon happen. If they are disturbed then this will affect the house itself.

Did you find Domovik interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a interesting and exciting picture of the Friendly and Dangerous Domovik and send it to this website. Interested in more Russian legend? A great cartoon called Dobrynya Nikitich and Zemy Gorynych (2006) is a Russian children's animation with Dragons and other Russian mythical beings. But for those who love Vampires, lets not forget that Eastern Europe is their birth place. No film quite gives the Vampire spooks like Nosferatu (1922). However if you like it modern, Day Watch and Night Watch are interesting Vampire alternatives. Also the fantasy tabletop game Warhammer features an army called Vampire Counts which has been greatly inspired by Eastern European beliefs and culture.
