The Zorya sisters
The Zoryas serve the sun god Dažbog, who in some myths is described as their father. Zorya Utrennyaya, the Morning Star, opens the gates to the god’s palace every morning for the sun-chariot’s departure. At dusk, Zorya Vechernyaya—the Evening Star—closes the palace gates once more after its return.
