Witch Finder General was an un-offficial title claimed by those who led the mass Witch Hunts and Trials of Europe that claimed the lives of over 80,000 people. Women and men that were accused of witchcraft were drown, burned, hung for not aligning with European "Christendom" between the 15th-18th centuries. The church itself saw witchcraft alternately as superstition that undermined church teachings and thus the church, and as real agreements with the Devil that also undermined the church. Cultural assumptions were that women were inherently
weaker, and thus more susceptible to either superstition or to the Devil's approach. Burn this candle to honour those slain, in gratitude and respect for their forced sacrifice.

Baba Yaga is a famous witch of the East, well-known in Russia. She has spooked and scared little children across Eastern Europe for many centuries.

It usually has no windows, sometimes not even a door. The house does not reveal the door until it is told a magical phrase: Turn your back to the forest, your front to me.
