Fairy is a female mythical creature, in Slavic mythology, who lives in nature. They are best preserved in the tradition and very popular with the Slavic people. Fairies were mostly friendly with people, but they could also be vengeful.
They usually lived in forests and by the rivers, and often in the mountains. Some fairies built their castles in the clouds. Fairies are imagined as very beautiful, slender girls they wore thin white dresses, with long unbraided hair over their back and breasts and sometimes nude. Their hair was mostly blond or red; golden hair is also mentioned.
Fairies would sometimes have relations with mortals. Folk tales mention goblins as people, mortals, who had relations with a fairy and by that earned some supernatural powers. When a fairy nurses a child, it is believed that the child will have great power.
Fairies often healed the wounds of wounded heroes, because they had a way with plants and magic. Fairies were also believed to be able to bring a person back to life.
