Baba Yaga is a witch-slash-sorceress and one of the most iconic figures in Slavic folklore, appearing in many tales and in various roles. She is a faculty advisor at Ever After High and sometimes teaches General Villainy along with Mr. Badwolf. Though she tends to go along with Headmaster Grimm's views on destiny, she has sympathy for the Rebels and helps them in small ways, particularly Poppy, who expresses interests in both sides, although Raven is sometimes pushed to be wicked. She is very wise and uses her magic to help resolve conflicts.
The advisor to dark magicians, Baba Yaga has a withering stare and frightening cackle. She is a powerful sorceress in her own right, yet she corrects behavior with a squirt from a spray bottle. She agrees with Milton Grimm's views on destiny, though is more patient and less rigorous about it than he is.
Madam Baba Yaga has long wiry grey hair, grey eyes, and peach skin. She wears a lot of jewelry on her body and feathers and bones in her hair.
Baba Yaga is a witch from Russian folklore, who is said to be very old with teeth made of sharpened iron, since she is supposedly a cannibal and these help her chew through bone. She lives in a shack on top of chicken feet (which moves the home around) and flies around in a chimney (or a mortar). Fairytales regarding Baba Yaga vary; in some myths she is a villain, in others a much needed aid to the protagonist.
