“Lan knew this day would come. She was born into a poor family, and she was sold to a traveling caravan of entertainers as a girl. Her life there was harsh… She said that rarely a day passed that she didn’t think about suicide. Then one day, a young man appeared and bought her freedom. Lan fell in love with the man, and they were blessed with you.”
—Daros's father revealing Lan's past to Plum
As a result of being born into a poor family, Lan was sold into slavery as a dancer to a troupe of entertainers. She thought about committing suicide almost every day. Eventually, she was rescued by Lionheart, and the two of them fell in love. She received a mirror as a gift from him. While Lan was pregnant with Plum, their home in Blood was attacked by bandits, who kidnapped them.
Lan was later rescued by a man named Daros, who carried her to the village of Taurus. During this time, she gave birth to Plum and became a mother figure to Daros's son, Barts. Although she did love Daros to some extent, she was too deeply in love with Lionheart to admit it. As a result, she and Daros never married, despite his own romantic feelings for her. Some time before the game's events, Lan died of an illness.
