Laena’s features are distinctly Valyrian. Though her hair and eyes are often covered by the hood of her cloak, there is no mistaking her silver-gold hair or her violet eyes. Her clothing is sturdy but well worn. She travels lightly with little more than her weapons.
The House Jasper expedition party encountered her shortly after their second landing on Valyria. Tito was able to act as a translator of sorts, but a difference of Valyrian dialect, combined with his rudimentary ability with the common tongue, made communication challenging. Laena was able to warn the travelers of vague dangers inland and urged them to stay near the sea… advice they did not heed.
