Vasta, the Sauna Elf is a kind-hearted guardian of the peace in sauna who knows the power and worth of Chaga tea. Vasta continues the growing-up ritual, where he takes pacifiers from children who are old enough to be without and gives them on to children who really need them. Vasta the Sauna Elf has a very deep emotional connection with the Elf in a Yellow dress.
