[[:Category:{{{FanArt}}}|Fan art of Lyra]]

Lyra is a human wizard, a member of the Slayer's Take guild in Vasselheim, and an ally of Vox Machina.  She is played by Felicia Day.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

...she is dressed in a nice blouse, her just-past-shoulder-length, somewhat curly hair, is kept as much as a frazzled woman would keep. A large pair of glasses adorn the front of her face, and she definitely is not who you were expecting to be considered leading this group into its journey.
– 
Matthew Mercer's description of Lyra's physical appearance. [2]

Personality Edit

Physically and socially awkward, naïve to the grave danger of a slayer's life, and lacking practical combat experience, Lyra was a curious choice for leading the party on such a perilous contract as slaying an adult white dragon.  Nevertheless, she tenuously attempted to make leadership decisions and was ultimately essential to her party's success in slaying Rimefang.[citation needed]

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Lyra's membership to the Slayer's Take was remarked upon as being "a technicality", and she was regarded as an unproven member of the guild.  Upon meeting Vox Machina, she claimed that her biggest kill to date was a worg that was threatening Aldor, another member of the guild and her love interest.[3]  That kill might have secured her place in the guild.[presumed]

Lyra has an uncle in Vasselheim, whom she calls Uncle Randi.  He is a trade ambassador and owns several warehouses within the city. Lyra stated that she was originally from Vasselheim, but studied "the wizardly arts" in Emon.[4] Despite this, she had not heard of Vox Machina prior to their introduction.

"Trial of the Take: Part 1" (2x02) Edit

Lyra was one of the two team leaders when Vox Machina was divided into teams for initiation into the Slayer's Take, a monster-hunting guild in Vasselheim.  Lyra's team, including Zahra Hydris, was tasked with fulfilling the contract for body parts from an adult white dragon.

"Trial of the Take: Part 2" (2x03) Edit

Lyra helped to slay Rimefang.

Relationships Edit

Aldor Edit

Throughout her adventure with Vox Machina, Lyra made frequent reference to Aldor and her amorous and unrequited feelings toward him.  Her party members, including Zahra, attempted to persuade Lyra that she should forget about Aldor and expand her romantic horizons.

Scanlan Shorthalt Edit

Scanlan was often flirtatious and duplicitous toward Lyra.  He went so far as to assume the form of her beloved, Aldor, after she was revived from the dragon fight.[5]

Quotations Edit

Lyra:  "(running into the room) Oh my gosh I'm so sorry I'm late, I'm so sorry–" (trips, spilling papaya onto the floor) "Oh my gosh, that is disappointing. That is just disappointing. Oh my gosh, you are so impressive, how lovely. Murtin, I brought you some papaya. I'm sorry. It's all over the floor right now. I– you know what, I will go get a broom, I'll clean it up right now–"
Murtin:  "No, no, don’t worry about it, I insist–"
Lyra:  "Somebody might slip–"
Murtin:  "Stay. With your group. We have important business to discuss. I appreciate the papaya."
Grog:  (under his breath) "She's the leader?"
Lyra:  "Well I just wanted to– this is my group. Yay! So nice to meet all of you." (to Grog) "You are large." (to Scanlan) "You are not." (to Vex) "You are so pretty."
Vex'ahlia:  "Oh, you are too."
Lyra:  (to Zahra Hydris) "Oh my gosh, I've heard about her, she is something."
Vex'ahlia:  "She is... yeah."
Lyra:  "Anyway. Nice to meet you, nice to meet you, nice to meet you."

Lyra's first impressions of Vox Machina. [13]
[!h]
Well, I just want to thank you. Thank you, Vanessa. Thank you for entrusting me with this group. I have been reading up a lot, lately. I'm very excited to (as if reciting) "Use the commanding presence of a guild leader," and prove my membership of the guild.
– 
Lyra [14]
Lyra:  "Listen, missy. I am a leader of this, and the fact that you pulled out a spell and did not say– and it is just– it's just not even the way I want to conduct my team. So. You. If you're going to use underhanded tactics you need to clear them with me first because I am the leader."
Zahra:  "My spellcasting is actually overhand, but..."
Lyra:  "Wha–?"
Zahra:  "I understand. And I shall keep that in mind, and I do apologize."
Lyra:  "Really?"
Zahra:  "Yes, I apologize very deeply. Very, very sincerely."
Lyra:  "I was just a leader! I did it."
Percy:  "Oh, well done!"
Lyra:  "Yay! We're going to have a great journey!"

[!h]
Can I use a Fire Bolt? That would be good, a Fire Bolt. [...] Is that okay? I mean, I'm the leader. I'm going to say I'm going to.
