Lyre, along with his twin sister Selene, is one of the night class's over achievers. He always strives to be the best at whatever he does and he has considerable magical power for someone so young. Lyre is somewhat more creative and intuitive than his sister whom is somewhat more logical.

Lyre knows little of pop culture like the Magic Space Ducks or Mindy Macabre having come from a traditional family which avoid mass media and as such is considered something of a dork by his class mates. He is highly competitive with his sister and the two frequently spend considerable time and effort to one up each other. Frequently when given assignments both end up going well above and beyond the project requirements in order to try and trump the other.
