Now, doesn’t this look a helluva lot like Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon, and one of the base game’s major bosses? Rennala, prior to the events of Elden Ring, led the mage academy Raya Lucaria and its Glintstone Knights. When Marika sent a champion named Radagon to fight Rennala and her Academy, the champion instead fell in love with her.

The two married, uniting Marika’s house of the Erdtree and Rennala’s house of the Moon. Rennala and Radagon had three kids: Rykard (the snake dude boss), Radahn (the big guy on a little horse boss), and Ranni (mommy). Radagon then left Rennala to become the second husband of Marika, breaking the Queen’s heart and mind.

Is this Queen Rennala before the heartbreak? Before the fall of the Academy? It certainly looks like it.
