Baba Yaga is a very popular character in a lot of Russian fairy tales. She is usually described as an old, ugly witch who lives far from the rest of the world. One thing that makes her different from other witches in fairy tales is the fact that her house or wooden hut stands on a pair of giant chicken legs. Her character is a little complicated. She is not considered good but not evil either. Although, some stories say she eats little children, that sounds kind of evil to me.
