"may I introduce you to the lovely Zorya Vechernyaya"

In Slavic mythology, Zorya Vechernyaya is one of three guardian goddesses who serve the sun god Dazbog.  They are also the guardians of Simargl, the doomsday hound.

She is the Evening Star: she closes the palace gates at dusk when the sun god has returned, and is associated with protection and exorcism.
