Janya bint Khalil was a the eldest daughter of Grand Caliph Khalil al-Assad al-Zahir in Huzuz, the City of Delights, in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]


Janya spent the first three years of her life within the Royal Harim but was moved to a secret location deep within Al-Akara Mountains for her own protection. She was to live within the mountains until Khalil fathered a male heir, or named her heir, or until she was of an age to be married. She was able to visit her parents in Huzuz regularly.[1]

Janya and her sister, Dalia were protected by both jann and elite agents of the Soft Whisper.[1]


Janya was the child of Khalil and his most favored wife Tanya bint Perijan. Her name honored both her mother and grandmother.[1]
