I've never read Baba Yaga as a villain.  More of a  complicated
and extremely powerful figure who does not always share the same
motivations and moralities as we lesser mortals. I think of
stories like Vasilisa the Beautiful -- Baba Yaga is terrifying
and not benevolent, but she is far more dangerous to evildoers
than she is to the good and brave.

You klingon bastard, you killed my son.  You klingon bastard, you killed my
son.  You ... Klingon ... bastard ... you ...
