In 1267, when Ciri had gone missing, Yennefer convinced Jarl Crach an Craite to accompany her to the island. There she spoke with the priestesses of the Temple of Freya and the then-high priestess, Modron Sigrdrifa, regarding a possibility of urgent rent of powerful Brisingamen.
When Ciri teleported to the island in 1272 and was treated at a home in the village of Lofoten, she also briefly visited the local sauna before leaving. Upon leaving, however, the Wild Hunt attacked the village. Ciri managed to flee on horseback with Skjall's help.
Sometime later Yennefer and Geralt visited this village whilst searching for Ciri learning that she was there and in the presence of Skjall, who had since gone to sacred gardens to fight Morkvarg and died. Geralt found his body and Yennefer performed necromancy on it to discover information about Ciri, but ultimately killed the energy of the place. For this, the priestesses declared that no Islander is permitted to feed, shelter or help Yennefer.
