Slavic Mythology -Rusalka by masiani. In Slavic mythology a rusalka is a female ghost, water nymph, succubus, or mermaid-like demon that dwelt in a waterway.

If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerize them, then lead them away to the river floor to their death.
