Sometime after the Battle of Belhalla, Lene and Coirpre were abandoned by Silvia at an orphanage in Darna. Fifteen years later, she is working as a dancer in Darna, where she meets and falls in love with Ares. When she refuses to become Bramsel's personal dancer, she is thrown into the dungeon of Darna Castle. It is believed that she may have been further abused by him. In Chapter 9, Lene meets Coirpre for the first time in her life, although neither of them recognize each other. Even after the fall of the Grannvale Empire, they do not reconcile. Lene has a cheerful exterior but hides a more vulnerable and emotional side of her personality deep within herself. This is attributed to the difficulties that she suffered after being abandoned by her mother. She wishes to find Sylvia and became a self-taught dancer for that reason. If her father is Lewyn, she expresses her feelings of loneliness caused by growing up without ever knowing her parents. She also reveals to Lewyn that she has always felt as if her father has been looking out for her. Lene also has a very realistic world-view, as she is aware that certain things must be done in order to survive, even if a person doesn't like it.
