The Swiza is a old hag of a woman with the antlers of a deer. She wears the fur of a wolf and is said to bring with her plagues and disaster. She was mostly spotted near the city of Kasperske Hory in Bohmerwald/Sumava. It is said the the Swiza has been around since pagan times. Most think she is a witch but it is possible that she is a deity or demigod. There is a story of a man meeting the Swiza. She capture him and told him to worship her. He refused because he was christian so she turned him into stone.
