- "He'd once thought of the Lady of Spring as a sort of pleasant, gentle young woman... This overwhelming Mind listened to every cry or song in the world at once. She watched the souls spiral up in all their terrible complex beauty with the delight of a gardener inhaling the scent of Her flowers."
- ―Cazaril's vision of the Daughter of Spring[src]
The Daughter of Spring, also called the Lady of Spring, was one of the five gods of the Chalion world.
Her particular domain was new life. Soldiers under the Daughter functioned mostly as police, keeping the roads clear of bandits. Her festival day, Daughter's Day, took place on the vernal equinox.
Her primary color was blue; the secondary was white. Virginity was sacred to her, as was young love and lyric poetry. Lady-schools educated children.
At death, unless there was a stronger association with a different god, women who'd never borne children generally were taken up by the Daughter.
