Dvorovoi- The East Slavic spirit of the courtyard (dvor). The most vaguely defined of Russian and Ukrainian household spirits, the dvorovoi held sway over a farmstead's grounds, cattle shed, and stable. At times, his functions and attributes overlapped with those of the house spirit (domovoi); some peasants believed him to be subordinate to the domovoi. The dvorovoi was perceived as less benevolent than the domovoi; a spiteful dvorovoi could be dangerous to livestock.
