Five Sisters of Good Fortune
The Five Sisters are guardian spirits of the Himalaya Mountains. Their ranks include:
• Dirghayusi (she rides a snow lion)
• Sugati (she rides a dragon)
• Suganthi (she rides a stag)
• Sumukhi (she rides a wild ass)
• Sumati (she rides a tiger)
The Five Sisters only concern themselves with people who venture into their mountains. If you’re trekking in the Himalayas, their favour is essential. If the sisters like you, they’ll aid and protect you, so it’s extremely important to stay on their good side. If you aggravate them or if they take a dislike to you, their weapons include storms, icy cold weather, accidents, and avalanches.
