Rübezahl

May I introduce: Rübezahl!
He is an ancient mountain spirit from the giant mountains, which are situated between Poland and the Czech Republic. Nobody knows why he is called "Rübezahl (literally turnips and counting) but there is one story telling how he counted turnips for his beautiful captive who was able to escape because of that.



"...Rübezahl, you should know, has the nature of a powerful genius: capricious, impetuous, peculiar, rascally, crude, immodest, haughty, vain, fickle, today your warmest friend, tomorrow alien and cold; ...roguish and respectable, stubborn and flexible...
Musäus, 1783
