The Leshii are malevolent and dangerous spirits. They are the male Russian forest guardians. They answer to Musail, the Forest Tsar. They have been known to cause “accidents” among woodcutters and use ventriloquism to lure people into the woods. They kidnap women for marriage and midwifery. They may befriend people, especially someone who can make them laugh. The Leshii preside over the souls of the dead who have not received last rites and wander in the forest.
The Leshii usually manifest as a man who leaves no footprints and does not cast a shadow, almost always seen with a large white wolf. They are, however shape-shifters and can manifest in other forms. They like gambling and card playing. Offerings include Kasha, cookies, and bread.
