In the myths of Russia there were three supernatural maidens that flew through the sky at night. They raised a prince from his grave so that they could drink his warm blood. An apprentice of the prince saw this happening and chased the maidens away. In doing so the maidens gave him a tablecloth and crimson wand. The apprentice used the wand to bring the Prince back to life for good.
