What am I like?
Physical Description: Lyra is a petite girl with a very childish face. Her sea green eyes are large, and they sparkle in the sunlight. Her small nose is positioned neatly between her eyes. Her thin pink lips are usually in a sweet smile. Though her skin is pale, Lyra’s cheeks always seem rosy and full of life. Lyra likes to keep her pink hair short, as it curls in at the edges when it is. Her bangs are short, but long on the sides. On nice days, Lyra wears her prized headband that her mother from the old village made her. Though it is simple two straps of leather, Lyra treasures it. Lyra likes long clothing, but thin material. Usually, she will wear a long sleeved white shirt, and a colorful skirt. When its cooler out, Lyra may throw a green shawl over her shoulders. Her long, thin fingers are perfect for handling the small seeds she sells. When out gathering seeds, or shopping in the village, Lyra wears a belt, similar to her headband, with a satchel attached to it. Like her headband, the belt is made of a few straps of leather, and the satchel is thin leather as well. If Lyra plans to go shopping for vegetables, she may bring a basket with her instead.
Picture/Face Claim: Lyra Evergreen(original character)
Personality: Lyra is a very sweet girl, with a very open personality. Though she seems childish on the outside, Lyra acts her age, and manages difficult situations well on her own. But, she hates when people think she’s younger than she actually is, or belittle her based on her childish appearance. Though Lyra doesn’t get angry or sad often, when it happens, her emotions are very powerful.
Most things in life make Lyra happy, especially spending time outside with her friends. Whether her friends be other villagers or tamed monsters, it doesn’t matter. This trait also gives her the urge to be helpful to others, as she wasn’t much help during the Orc Attacks in the Gember Mountains. When Lyra fails at being helpful, or someone doesn’t want her help, she may get unhappy. But, this will soon pass, as she always has other things to help people with. Lyra also has a habit of getting herself in over her head when she has a goal to accomplish. She only keeps the goal in mind, and not the danger. Otherwise, she’s very responsible and self-dependent.

Where am I from?
History: Lyra was on of the original settlers of Kamille. She came from the old village that was raided by the Sechs Empire. Back at home, she was the daughter of the general store owner, and was expected to take over when she was of age. Lyra liked the idea, and was always helpful on her parent’s farm. But, when the night to escape the old village came, Lyra was stubborn and didn’t want to leave. Knowing that it was dangerous to stay, she ran off with the other villagers into the night.
While on the move, Lyra kept to herself and just tried to enjoy the scenery, pretending it was just a temporary vacation from home. She wasn’t much help when the other villagers needed it, but she was good at picking edible plants for dinner when provisions were low. During the Orc Attacks in the Gember Mountains, Lyra made sure to stay out of the way and out of sight so she wouldn’t be harmed. Unfortunately, when she had the chance to help, she normally ignored it. By the time she arrived at the Kaneel Meadow, most of her family had either been lost in the forest, or killed by the Orcs. Grieving over the loss, Lyra stepped up and was determined to make up for her mistakes. She helped the other villagers with establishing the town, and took control of the new General Store. This way, she could be helpful, and carry on her family’s legacy.
What do I look for in a person?
Friendship: Lyra is generally friendly and open. She will be friends with just about anyone she comes across. Though, people who are generally gloomy, angry, or disrespectful tend to make Lyra unhappy. As such, she doesn’t like to be around them much. People who tend to be like Lyra in her nature loving ways always attract her interest. She holds great respect for farmers, and monster owners overall, but loves anyone who works hard at what they do best.
Romance: Friendship comes easier for Lyra than Romance. Though she loves people who give her presents (especially edible ones), she likes men who are deep and thoughtful as well. Anyone who likes her help also has some good points with Lyra. Overall though, Lyra doesn’t have much of a preference. Friendship can easily grow into romance. It really just depends on the person. But, as long as they like her company, and don’t mind her overly joyful personality, they’re good.
