The Forges of Dawn
Dasturi (identical twin sister)
Dayima is the older of the identical twin daughters of Koto and Liwaza.
Dayima is a golden lioness with a ornamental necklace around her neck and orange eyes. Her ears are rimmed brown, she is shaggy around the head and neck, and her tail is a deeper brown. The feathers of her necklace are red, distinguishing her from her sister, who has red feathers.
Same as her sister, Dayima is a snobbish, aloof and fiery lyonesse.
In The Forges of DawnEdit
Dayima is a young adult and a young huntress of the pride, partaking at the hunt in the beginning of the book. She is herded away with the pride when Jesiza attacks but is unable to escape with Moyo, Oni, Aja and her sister. Presumably, Vireka turned her into a hound, and she survived the events of the book as Uru ordered no hounds be killed.
