A powerful Sorceress from the legends of Russia. She transformed herself into a princess named Evpraksiya from Kiev. In this form she went to meet and woo the Russian hero Dorbynya Nikitich. The two began courting but the mother of Dorbynya Nikitich was also a sorceress and knew who Evpraksiya really was. She warned her son but he paid no attention and decided to marry his new found love. After the two were married, Marinka transformed Dorbynya Nikitich into a golden bull. When people found out about this the kingdom was divided in two. A civil war of magic commenced. Marinka and the mother of Dorbynya Nikitich fought each other in a duel of magic.
