Slavic Star Goddesses
Also known as Zaryi, Zoryi
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 Dažbog’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 Zorya must maintain a constant watch. If the monster escapes, he will devour the Universe and bring total apocalyptic destruction. Such responsibility.
