Lara Dorren aep Shiadhal was the daughter of Shiadhal. She was an elven sorceress who fell in love with Cregennan of Lod, a mighty human mage after the Conjunction of the Spheres. Their union was very controversial for both races.

After Cragen died, Lara gave birth to their daughter, but died herself soon after, orphaning the child. Cerro, the queen of Redania at the time, adopted the half-elf girl and named her Riannon.

The descendants of Lara Dorren, which include Ciri, are regarded as special, for their magical gifts are considered to be very strong and they carry Hen Ichaer, Elder Blood.

The Witcher (PC) Edit

During the game, Geralt can read two books that tell the elven and the human versions of the lovers' tale, Lara's Gift and The Story of Lara Dorren and Cragen of Lod.

Yaevinn says:

Lara Dorren aep Shiadhal was an elven sorceress, called Aen Saevherne, a Knowing One. She carried Hen Ichaer, Elder Blood, which puzzles even us elves. As fate would have it, Lara fell in love with a human sorcerer, Cregenan of Lod. Other humans could not bear it and began persecuting them. No pleas would soften the stone hearts of the cruel and merciless dh'oine. When Lara, begging for her unborn child, grabbed the door of the royal carriage, a man-at-arms lashed out with his cutlass, chopping her fingers off. When the nighttime frosts came, Lara languished on a forest hill. She gave birth to a daughter whom she protected with what warmth remained in her waning body. Though through the night a blizzard had raged, spring suddenly appeared on that hill and feainnewedd bloomed. To this day those flowers grow only in Dol Blathanna and on the land where Lara breathed her last. You must understand the importance of her artifacts. She was exceptional to us, someone whose loss defies words, no matter the language...

It is suggested that Alvin might be a descendant of Lara Dorren.
