ZORYI

Slavic Star Goddesses

Also known as ZARYI

Three Slavic Star Sisters

They are deities of morning (ZORYA-UTRENNYAYA), evening (ZORYA-VECHERNYAYA) and midnight (ZORYA). They let the sun in and out of DAZBOG’s Sky Palace.

They also guard the fearsome bear monster which is chained within the constellation Ursa Minor (the Little Bear). The monster — who cannot be named for legal reasons — is constantly struggling to escape his bonds so he can rampage across the sky.

The ZORYI must maintain a constant watch. If the monster escapes, he will devour the Universe and bring total apocalyptic destruction. Such responsibility.
