Ilazki is the Basque Goddess of the Moon. She is the daughter to Lur, the Goddess of the Earth, and sister of Eguzki, Goddess of the Sun. As the light of the night, Ilazki was believed to give light to the souls of the dead, and graves often had pictures of the moon on them. It was believed to be most favorable to die when the moon was in its first phase, so that the soul of the deceased would grow as the moon did. Ilazki’s name, means “light of the dead."

As in the convent, she was still required to wear her veil, though it was far different than the thin fabric that she once wore. Now though, it felt as more of a prison than before. Not for the first time did she wonder what the man who was her father was planning with her.

In certain Arab nations it is customary for the women to cover almost everything whenever in public. I am not a big fan of this, however the one thing that is beautiful is the fact the eyes are one of the only things seen and so you slowly fall in love with a women's eyes. They eyes are the first thing of beauty that are noticed.
