One persistent group of enemies in Song Child is the rusalki. In Slavic folklore, a rusalka was a woman who had either died a violent death in water or committed suicide in water. These malevolent night-time creatures haunted rivers, lakes, pools of water, and the shores thereof, luring men to a watery death by means of their voice or seductive powers.

In one of the encounters in Song Child the rusalki are somewhat distant from the water, being under the influence of the sorcerer Zmekosch the Undying. They are throughout given to employing direct violence rather than the more subtle seductive and vocal approach, perhaps because of the fact that they never isolate any of the characters (several of whom are not male) and must deal with them as a group. That's my reasoning anyway ;)
