Vili -Plural

These are Slavic fairies who inhabit various aspects of nature such as trees, lakes, fields and rivers. They are virgins of children and come up from their graves to engage in a dance. Anyone who joins in with their dancing ritual will be magically enticed to dance with them until they die. Sometimes they are known to be fairy godmothers and predict the fate of children like the Moirae. They are called Wili and Samovily in other languages.
