A mortal woman — daughter of Pagbokásan and Ebang of Kaodanan — who was carried to the heavens by a vine that coiled itself around her waist. There, she secretly tried to enter the place where Aponītolau, the Sun, sleeps at night, but the Sun was awakened by her radiant beauty and married her. Her son Kanag was born from Aponībolinayen's little finger when she scratched an itchy spot.

She also appears as Ayo and Dolimáman.
