Lyris was apprenticed to Marthell, an arcane spellcaster who lived in a tower not far from the village of Hawksbridge. After Marthell was captured or killed, Lyris fled with only a few of her possessions. She traveled north and met an adventuring company, led by the half-elf bard, Stravo Vangelis. They helped her and she in turn aided them. When Stravo’s companions were killed, Lyris agreed to join the bard in his quests.
Lyris is a youthful, attractive half-elf with short, dark hair. She is from Westreach.
