|— Elan's mother (Comic 725|
According to Tarquin, she insisted that they would separate. Tarquin (at least according to him) went to the court for visitation rights but she fought him with all legal measures. Eventually it was compromised to share the twins, and the Barmaid kept Elan. She attempted to fulfill the absence of his father by wearing a fake mustache in picnics.
Elan's mother seems to be needlessly complicated. In the last panel of Comic 725, she is seen planning out a table-serving plan, as quoted above. The same comic strongly implies that this is where Nale got his penchant for the needlessly complicated, as Elan pointed out in response to Nale's fighter/rogue/sorcerer multiclass with specialization in enchantment spells (Comic 50).
