Thanks for the replies. I looks a bit more complicated than I thought.

The character in question is daughter of a top family in Dara Happa who was bless/cursed with an independent and stubborn mind and eventually rebelled against patriarchal ways (ending up in Yanafal). (The Dara Happans probably don't like Lunar feminism, but it probably helps maintain the DH patriarchy since it acts as a relief valve letting those who would oppose it to just leave).

So, to do her right wrt to her background, I need to know what cult she was in before she left (and eventually whether she would still be in it). Since she left to _become_ an independent women and leave, so not Naveria or Verithurusa? (Though joining Verithurusa work well as a mechanism for her leaving DH). She isn't any more secluded than any other DH woman, so not Ourania?

Dendara works but some say that devotion of DH women should be lead by the father or husband? That makes sense for DH, though the Glorantha Index says Dendara is "worshipped in Dara Happa by women of the upper class" (and if DH women don't worship her, who does?)
