Sarugani Temaida Balitang (pronounced SAHR-oo-gah-nee tehm-EYE-dah BAHL-ee-tahng) was a raka noblewoman and descendant of the Haiming Dynasty, the old ruling family of the Copper Isles before the Luarin Conquest. House Temaida had kept the old royal blood a secret for centuries, waiting since the Kyprish Prophecy for a chance to put one of their female members on the throne. As the Prophecy called for someone who was "twice-royal", Sarugani would not have been the queen whom Kyprioth mentioned in the prophecy. Before her death, she was married to Mequen Balitang and had two daughters by him: Saraiyu and Dovasary. Through Sarai she was the grandmother of Mequen Hetnim.

Biography

Early life

Although Sarugani was raised among those who knew who she was and what she carried and meant for the raka, it is likely that she was not aware of how important she was, due to her fiery passion and general impulsiveness. The conspirators thought about putting her on the throne, but they decided against it, knowing the time wasn't right and she wasn't right.

Marriage

She married a Rittevon duke, Mequen Balitang, a cousin of King Oron. She was best friends with Lady Winnamine Fonfala, another luarin noblewoman who did not care about ethnic or racial differences when choosing friends. Upon her marriage to Duke Mequen, Sarugani became Duchess Balitang. Her dowry was Tanair, a small castle on Lombyn Island.

Motherhood

Sarugani had two daughters with Mequen. Her Haiming blood and his Rittevon blood made the girls "twice-royal". Sarai, the firstborn, was chosen as the conspiracy's de facto queen candidate.

In 455 HE when her daughters were nine and five respectively, Sarugani was a victim of a serious horseriding accident that killed her[1].

Personality and traits

Sarugani was similar to Sarai, and the raka conspirators believed that she would not have been a good candidate to retake the throne from the luarin because of her passionate and sometimes reckless personality.

Appearances

Sarugani herself doesn't appear in any of the books. She died years before Trickster's Choice begins, around the time of Page, the second volume of the Protector of the Small-quartet. Thus she is only mentioned in the two Daughter of the Lioness novels.
