    The Witcher is an action role-playing hack and slash video game developed by CD Projekt RED and published by Atari.

    The vodianoi is a male water spirit of Slavic origin. The Czech and Slovak equivalent is called a vodník, Polish is a wodnik, while Russian is vodianoy.A South Slavic equivalent is is viewed to be particularly malevolent, existing almost exclusively to drown swimmers who have angered him by their boldness. Reports of his appearance vary; some tales define him as a naked old man. In traditional Pre-Christian folklore the Rusalka or Rusalki (plural), was seen as the most dangerous ghost of all. Polish legends says that Rusalka spirits were girls or women who died an unnatural or violent death. This succubus type spirit seeks to continue to exist by drawing the energy of life from all nearby living things.
