Demons who are responsible for making people lose their way in forests. They also send a traveler in the wrong direction on crossroads, so that this person's soul loses its way as well. The Vadatajs ("leading to nowhere") often assume the shape of an animal, but also that of a human being. They belong to the same lower level of deities as Dievini, Pukis and Ragana.
