Rusalka. Rusalka was created by the Russian creators Vasilii Goncharov (Charodeika) and Vladimir Siversen and appeared in the film Rusalka (1910).

The daughter of a miller has a prince for a lover, but she discovers that the prince intends to leave her to marry a noblewoman. The prince attempts to pay the miller’s daughter off, but she refuses and vanishes. She reappears at the prince’s wedding feast and again at his bed, having become a rusalka, a seductive river spirit. The prince becomes obsessed with the rusalka, and sinister occult wackiness ensues.
