The current ruling queen, Yelena has suceeded the throne after her husband, the previous king of Aytolis, had passed away. As Aytolis is invaded, the twins meet up with Yelena to make their escape. However, while running through a cave, she is separated from the rest of the group by large boulders and so gives the Shield of Flames to Rowan and Lianna before urging them to go on without her, only to be completely trapped under the collapsed building.
Later on, Yelena is discovered to be alive, only to be revealed that Oskar and the possessed Darios are holding her hostage, preparing to sacrifice Yelena to revive Velezark’s full power, though the possessed Darios makes the proposal that if the twins surrender their weapons, he will spare her. When they do so, he turns to kill her anyways, but is stopped by Takumi, who predicted this outcome. The twins retrieve their weapons, and Rowan forces the possessed Darios back as Lianna rescues Yelena from the magic circle she was being held captive in.
At the end of the game, Yelena presents the twins with their crowns.
Yelena is troubled that her children both refuse to inherit the thrones, but she gently watches over them as they grow.
