Lyra was captured by the evil forces of the Dark Sorceress and imprisoned along with her sisters. Somehow, Lyra managed to escape and steal away to Ravenswood but not unscathed as she was drenched in Black Fire, leaving her horribly scarred and burned. Discovered by Adriane, she was taken to Dr. Carolyn Fletcher, the local vet, where Emily comforted her throughout her recovery. Lyra gave a fond thank-you and farewell to Emily before leaving as she knew she was destined to bond with another (Kara). Meeting Kara, and through some magical events, Lyra's fur was restored to reveal her leapord fur and beauty. Lyra can form magic wings and she is empathetic to others' emotions.
Lyra has two sisters, Rynda and Olinde and an unnamed brother. She was trapped in the Dark Sorceress's dungeon, along with her sisters, but managed to find a way to escape, even though it meant leaving Rynda and Olinde behind.
