Vukashin

Serbian - A noble. Brother of Goiko and Uglesha. The three brothers were warned by a veela that the fortress they were building at Scutari would never stand unless the infant twins, Stoyan and Stoyana, were buried under the walls. He sent the servant, Dessimir, to find the twins but he failed. The veela then said that the wife of one of the brothers must be immured in the walls. Goiko's wife, bringing their food next morning, was chosen as the victim. Responding to her pleas, the builder, Rado, left an opening in the wall at breast level through which, for a whole year, she fed her baby son, Yovo. Also identified as Vukashin.
