The scariest creatures of our nightmares are often born out of the imagination. They come from the very depths of darkness and our unspoken fears. However, throughout history, many different creatures have been believed to exist and to terrorize the areas of many all over the world.

The tale of Koschei, often called Koschei The Deathless One, is Slavic, in origin, and tells of a being who cannot die. He causes lots of mischief throughout his life and is considered to be a very fearsome being, for he cannot die. He does have a weakness which is his soul, but that soul is locked away in the form of a needle. That needle resides within an egg which is inside a duck, and that duck is tucked away inside a hare. The hare is locked tight inside of a very strong iron box which was buried underneath an oak tree which is on a mystical island. Certainly not the ideal vacation trip to retrieve.
