The child was conceived before Roran and Katrina were officially wed, although the couple was married shortly after they realized Katrina was with child. Besides themselves, only Eragon and Nasuada were aware of the illegitimacy of the pregnancy, while everyone else believed the child was conceived after the wedding. Katrina stated that she would do anything possible to protect her child and even considered leaving the Varden after Ismira's birth to care for her in an environment not so threatened by war and struggle.
Ismira was born a healthy baby with an especially loud cry. Eragon commented that she had a strong grip, as she grasped his finger in her small hand. She was named after Katrina's late mother.
