The star-maiden, daughter the Big Star, Bagbagak, and the Moon, Sīnag. She descended from heaven in her star-dress to look for sugar cane that grew in the garden of Aponītolau. She desired Aponītolau for herself and told him that if he refused to go with her, she would have her companion stars devour him. He went with her and became by her the father of Tabyayen.

Later she allowed Aponītolau to visit his earthly wife Aponībolinayen. She also let Tabyayen visit Kanag, Aponībolinayen's son by Aponītolau.
