Lena Zelevas is the sister of Emperor Maximilian Zelevas.
Lena was born 15 years after her brother, Maximilian. She witnessed how her brother overthrew the former emperor and established control over the United Empire. In her early years, she had an affair with Duke Anatov, an enemy of her brother. Anatov was eventually killed during the Great Continental War but not before conceiving two daughters, Viktoria and Julinka, with Lena, even though Julinka's existence was hidden from the world. After her lover's death and her daughters' birth, Lena Zelevas became more religious, often disappearing on pilgrimages for months at a time.
Lena Zelevas is a religious yet bitter woman, being described as possessing a "smoldering anger".
