Character Concept

Lyra is a friendly and warm person, always willing to help those around her and usually smiling. On the flip side of this, she can be quite stern when the occasion calls for it and will stand her ground if she needs to and stand up for what she believes in. Lyra is not prejudiced with other races, having seen her fair share of them growing up in a city many come to see. She is loyal to those close to her and will run to their aid any time day or night. Lyra has an artistic mindset, seeing the beauty in all things, sometimes in things or in ways others don't. She loves to observe the world around her.
Character History

Lyra was born to average parents, living in a small house in Okomo Estates. When not working, her father tended the property and the few chickens and goats they had, and Lyra's mother tended the garden. As a small child, Lyra helped out wherever she could, even if some of that help was observing and listening. Her parents would explain while she watched and she made sure to pay attention when they spoke. After all, she one day hoped to manage a home of her own so every day was a learning opportunity. Unfortunately her childhood would be interrupted and her lessons put on hold.

Lyra was 6 when Aysel, Talora, and Zintila turned their attentions elsewhere and Lhavit fell to corruption, bringing the dark years upon them. No one escaped the effect of that corruption. Living conditions plummeted, slaves outnumbered the remaining citizens, and the Diamond of Kalea was all but in ruin. The 11 years they were gone utterly became a blur in Lyra's memory. Those years were rough and monotonous to say the least, but Lyra's family's faith never wavered, and she drew strength from them to push on and prevail.

Their faith did pay off though when Aysel and Talora returned to Lhavit and worked to restore the city. Now 17 in a city tentatively back to normal, Lyra finally had time to really explore her interests and figure out what she wanted to do with herself. In those explorations, she discovered her love for art. Having been too young to truly appreciate it before the dark years, art resonated with Lyra in a way she never expected as a teenager. Art moved her, forced her to think, forced her to confront herself and the world around her, and soothed her when she needed it. It was anything and everything she needed it to be. From then on she knew art was her future and she began learning the craft.

For her 18th birthday, Lyra's parents gifted her an Artist's Toolkit and with their full support, she threw herself into the industry, spending her free time studying any piece and type of art she could lay eyes on. She began dabbling with several branches of the field before falling in love with painting. Something about the brush and paint gliding across the canvas just felt like home to her. Felt as right as breathing. Lots of trial and error and practice followed over the years but Lyra's belief in her passion and in herself never ceased. Every mistake was a lesson eagerly learned. To this day it's something she still wholeheartedly believes in, complete with intentions of expanding her craft beyond just the canvas.
