  • From Romanian folklore and mythology. It likes beautiful young girls, whom it kidnaps, usually on the purpose of marrying them. It is almost always defeated by a daring prince or knight-errant. Its natural form is that of a dragon. The "zmeu" figures prominently in many Romanian folk tales as the manifestation of the destructive forces of greed and selfishness. (Wikipedia)
