because of it, nobody in her village liked her. she began to be malicious, and soon people started blaming her for everything. “oh, my cow is sick, it must have been jaga!”
one day jaga disappeared. she decided to visit the god of death, weles, because she had no reason to live anyway.
after a long journey, she finally arrived to weles’ palace. the god was impressed by her story and taught her magic.
abandoning kids wasn’t uncommon back then, so jaga started taking care of young, abandoned girls and teaching them magic. the boys were left as a sacrifice for weles.
