Jaime Bialer asked Gail Z. Martin:

I keep trying to keep the eight faces of the Lady straight in the summoner series, but always seem to be missing one or two every time. What are they, and which are light and which are dark?

Gail Z. Martin Hi Jaime! Great question. Here we go--

The Mother--Light aspect, one of the patron aspects of Margolan
The Childe--Light aspect, Margolan's other patron aspect
Chenne, the Warrior--Light aspect, Isencroft's patron aspect
The Lover--Light aspect--a favorite in Dhasson
Athira, the Whore--Dark aspect, favorite in Principality
Istra, the Dark Lady--Dark aspect, patron of vampires and outcasts, favored in Dark Haven
Sinha, the Crone--Dark aspect, favored in Nargi and Trevath
The Formless One--Dark aspect, her worship is banned in all of the Winter Kingdoms

Bear in mind that the dark or shadowed aspects aren't necessarily evil. They are just the opposite of the light aspects. Personally, I'm rather partial to Istra.
