Larissa is the daughter of Gurev Medved and heir to rule House Medvyed.
Larissa was reunited with Astrid on the latter’s return to Brevoy. Astrid found her older sister had grown into quite a woman, noble and strong, and was due to receive the full title of Lady Medvyed – not simply the regent as women heretofore were.
Larissa Medvyed grew up with Astrid Rogaria from an early age. Larissa took well to Astrid’s arrival, when she was only 7 years old, and treated Astrid as if she were a true sister.
