An underworld creature in the beliefs of the Slavic people. He helps bring a good harvest to a designated family. He will become part of the family and live in the house doing many chores. Farmers would repay their Barstukai by offering them food. This food was left out on a table were the Barstukai would eat it at midnight. The Barstukai were ruled by Puskaitis, the god from the elder bush that rewarded worshippers with grain.
