ZORYA
Also known as ZORYA-POLUNOCHNAYA

Goddess of Midnight

She is the shadowy third sister of the ZORYI. According to some sources, she is a nameless third goddess who looks after the night while her sisters mark the dawn and dusk.

Celebrated writer and genius NEIL GAIMAN, who included the ZORYI in his superlative novel American Gods, bestowed upon her the name ZORYA-POLUNOCHNAYA ('Midnight Star').

However, despite some reports to the contrary, he did not actually invent her. He did, however, do wonderful things for her self-esteem.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Zorya graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Zorya movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Zorya statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Zorya. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
