Lady Larissa Velaryon was a noblewoman of House Velaryon. She became a close friend and favorite of her cousin Princess Rhaena Targaryen.[2]

History

In 35 AC, Larissa became the first true friend of her cousin, Princess Rhaena Targaryen. For a time the two girls were inseparable, until Larissa was suddenly recalled to Driftmark to be wed to the second son of the Evenstar of Tarth.[2]

By 55 AC, Lady Larissa's husband had died, and their daughter had recently been wed to the elderly Lord Estermont. Rather than remain on Tarth or return to Driftmark, the widowed Larissa chose to stay with her daughter at Greenstone after the wedding. Her presence on Greenstone drew her cousin Rhaena, whose companions had recently been murdered, and whose daughter Aerea had recently disappeared on Balerion. Rhaena lingered on Estermont for a year, seeking the solace of with her childhood companion Larissa.[1]

After Aerea's return, death, and funeral in 56 AC, Queen Alysanne Targaryen asked Rhaena if she wished to return to Greenstone. Rhaena dismissed the idea, referring to Larissa as a ghost, though a kind one.[1]

Family

As a cousin of Princess Rhaena Targaryen,[2] Larissa is likely a daughter or niece of Lord Daemon Velaryon. She wed the second son of the Evenstar of Tarth and had a single daughter, who later wed the Lord of Estermont.[1]
