As of at least 4713 AR, Elvanna is the queen of Irrisen, though she rarely leaves her palace in Whitethrone. She is working on her legacy; taxes are at record levels, but so far no one has been able to discover where the money has been going.[2] Like all queens before her, Elvanna has her children and grandchildren placed in positions of power throughout Irrisen, and little happens within the wintry kingdom without the queen soon hearing about it.[3] Elvanna is the fourteenth daughter of Baba Yaga left to rule that wintry land.[4]

Succession concerns

Like prior daughters of the old crone brought to power in Irrisen, Elvanna followed her older sister Yelizaveta. As with past successors, she never knew what fate befell her older sibling, but the rumors of what could have happened prompted Elvanna to be more active in her plans to solidify her station. In her studies, Elvanna uncovered the failed rebellion of the ninth queen against their mother, an event called the Witchwar. This information has only served to steel Elvanna's determination to remain in power for as long as she possibly can.[5]

Elvanna's 100-year term expired in 4713 AR, when Baba Yaga was scheduled to replace her. Little is known about whether this has happened, and if it has then the identity of her replacement is unknown.[6][7]
