Romilla Aillard is heir of Kirella, sub-domain of Aillard, and a young person of about 16 years with a laran very powerful, but uncontrolled due to the strong depression and suicidal tendencies of the girl. It is treated by leronis Mhari and later by the doctor Rodrigo Halloran, without success. Saravio confuses her with an incarnation of the deity for which she was obsessed, Naotalba, and her laran turns out to have a positive effect on Romilla who immediately delights in his gift. Eduin takes advantage of this and uses his own laran to make Romilla increasingly allied with him and Saravio believing that Romilla was a sent from Naotalba. It is unclear if she dies in the conflict between Eduin and Callina Mallory at the Valeron Tower, but it appears that she is the only witness to the incident.
