This is a classic ghost story with a touch of whodunit. I would almost say that if Agatha Christie had written MtG fanfic, it might have looked something like this. And that is the highest compliment I can give.

Some questions, though:
Domovoi? Where did the name come from?

Also, why did he look like a nude dwarf version of his master? It made for a good red herring, but what was the thought?

Thanks for the question and the read, Aaarrrgh!

To answer said question, a Domovoi is a protective spirit of the house in Slavic mythology. Sometimes, they are said to take on the appearance of the master of the house. I first became aware of the existence of the myth of the Domovoi through the Sierra adventure game Quest for Glory IV: Shadow of Darkness, which is a great game (if, of course, you like old-school PC adventure games), and is set in a Slavic-themed land that heavily influenced my creation of Morvata.

I hope this answers your question!

I figured it was a mythology reference, I just couldn't be bothered looking it up. So yes, that does answer my question.
