Another of Lithuania's Mythological figures, Gabija was the personification of Fire. She was portrayed as both a Human Female, and sometimes as a Cat (or related animal). Revered, when fire was made, the coals produced were protected (allowed to cool on their own) – with coverings. Salt was given as an offering to Gabija. Seen as a Protector of The Heart (Home), if She was angered, She could ''walk The House'' and cause a Fire. Seen as Pagan by Christianity, She was assimilated as St. Agatha (especially in Russia).
