Iele

Iele = supernatural creatures from Romanian mythology, widespread in superstitions; no one can establish a clear profile for them because of the inconsistencies in folklore, however, their preferred mythological form is that of 9 seductive and "crazy" (in Romanian an atribute for crazy is "lunatec", a derivate of the word "moon") virgins whose supernatural powers (malevolent if anybody dares to watch them dance) increase immensely when they dance in circles. Their origins are that of old Dacian priestesses performing mystical rituals.
