Leader of the small Chasind Village Dosov
Zorya is the leader of Dosov Village, hence her title (“baba” means “female elder” in an old Chasind dialect). She is a free spirit, and claims that she has no husband or lover because she is married to Dosov. Approaching middle age, Zorya is very attractive. She braids her long black hair and is hardly ever seen without Sasha, her snake.
