Tava, or Lady of the Air is the Bird God and aspect of Kynareth in the Redguard Pantheon. Considered the spirit of the air and goddess of weather, she holds dominion over the sun and storms. After the destruction of Yokuda, she is said to have lead its inhabitants to Herne. The second wave of Yokudan settlers, the Ra Gada, revered her and were known as "Tavan", and their armor and weapons drew from bird-like motifs. Tava is still revered among sailors in Hammerfell with shrines in most port cities. The Goshawk is a bird which is sacred to Tava.
