If she eventually ends up a Yanafali, well, a Mask of the Goddess would make the most sense to me. Verithurusa as the daughter of Yelm is the obvious choice.

Some of it depends when Dara Happan women are formally initiated into the "adult" version of the religion. If she went Lunar early enough, she might have joined the Seven Mothers or the like.
