The Chronicles of Narnia Wiki

Zardeenah, the "Lady of the Night", was a goddess of the Calormene mythology. Aravis spoke of her escape from marriage to Ahoshta Tarkaan, mentioning Zardeenah in a way implying her to be a goddess of virgins. Aravis said that damsels must perform sacrifices in the forest to "bid farewell" to Zardeenah's service before being married. Also, Zardeenah is likely to be the manifestation of intellectual darkness or the night, as is heavily suggested by her title.
