Lore of Rennala, Queen of Full Moon
The Rennala you meet is a sad figure holding an Amber encased unborn egg. She seems like a broken shadow of her past self. She became so after her beloved husband Radagon abandoned her and married Queen Marika.
It seems she still loves and awaits Radagon as she sits in a place overseen by his statue. She also lamentingly holds the Great Rune of the Unborn, a gift Radagon gave her. And the path leading to Rennala is also protected by a guard dog called Red Wolf of Radagon.
After the first phase of the bossfight with Rennala, Ranni, her daughter intervenes with her voice. When the second phase of the battle begins, Rennala for a moment changes from a broken lover to a ferocious and protective mother. At this point she shows her full power for us to behold.
She is still the queen of the Carian Empire and one of the most powerful magician in the Lands Between. In past, she led her armies in the war against Queen Marika’s powerful Golden Order. Rennala’s forces could not be defeated by the Order as the war ended in a stalemate. At this point, champion of the Golden Order, Radagon was wedded to Queen Rennala. This union forged a new alliance between the Carian Empire and the Order.
When you defeat Rennala, she asks Ranni to unleash her full potential by weaving Ranni’s night into being. She is a mother above all, as she is obsessed with re-birthing children. During the bossfight, she is surrounded by numerous of her children who are the product of imperfect rebirthing.
