A rusalka is a female ghost, succubus, or mermaid-like demon that dwell in the bottom of the river.
While her primary dwelling place was the body of water in which she died, the Rusalka could come out of the water at night, climb a tree, and sit there singing songs, sit on a dock and comb her hair, or join other Rusalki in circle dances.
In the middle of the night, they walk out to the bank and dance in the meadows. If they see a handsome man, they will fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerize them, and then lead them away to the river floor to their death.
