Biyal was a mate of Reatur. Her budding was the first witnessed by American astronauts. Like all Minervan mates prior to Lamra, she died after dropping her buds, to the horror of the Americans. Reatur personally attended her during her budding, cleaned her blood from the budding chamber, and laid her body out for the scavengers the night after her death. As usual, he was saddened at the loss of a mate.
