Kuma Lisa (Bulgarian: Кума Лиса which means Godmother Fox) or Lisa Patrikeyevna (Russian: Лиса Патрикеевна which means Fox Patrikas's-daughter, named after prince Patrikas[1], who was known as very sly politician) or Lisichka-sestrichka (Ukrainian: Лисичка-сестричка which means Fox-sister) is a character, a fox from Bulgarian and Russian folklore, who usually plays the role of the trickster, as an archetype. Many Bulgarian folk tales as well as authored works use the character of Kuma Lisa. In many tales Kuma Lisa is encountered with another character known as Kumcho Vulcho - a wolf which is opposite to her and very often suffers from her tricks.
