Aka Elaine Montray-Alton.
Born on Darkover, ahe stayed with her mother on Terra after Mariel separated from Wade. Elaine was reared and schooled there with her brother Larry Montray, who was Kennard Alton's bredu. Kennard did not originally realize her lineage, though he doubtless identified her as one of the rare Terrans with laran. He later married her and they returned to Armida, where she bore him two sons, Lew Alton and Marius Alton. The Comyn Council would not recognize her as anything more than barragana, and Kennard fought for years to have Lew declared the legitimate heir to the Alton Domain.
She died at Marius's birth, about 12 years before the Sharra Rebellion, and Kennard took her body back to Aldaran.
Her given name in casta was Yllana.
