Lystra was one of the five children from Hariko village that survived Ryazan's raid. She has since become a powerful practitioner of arts and has become renowned for her raw power on the battlefield.
Lystra is very tall, yet slim. She has long, dark brown hair that reaches to the middle of her back. She wears a loose short sleeve t-shirt that has white and blue stripes on it, with the front of the shirt tucked into light blue jean shorts, and white sneakers. She has two small pearls embedded in her chest, one is between her collar bones directly at the base of her neck and the other is about an inch below it.
Obtaining the Blessing of Nydry
After her training from Harvel Hariko, Lystra traveled to seek more power in order to defeat Ryazan like the rest of the surviving Hariko children. She heard from a traveling merchant that there is a Sassagiran champion who wields a powerful water-based art and travels to Marrow in hopes of finding them and convincing them to be her new teacher. However, when she found her way to Restoria, the Sassagiran capital, she found that the champion had been killed while protecting the outer isles in the serpent sea from Ryazan's raids.
Ryazan had been raiding small remote islands belonging to the Sassagira out in the serpent sea. The Sassagiran champion, who is blessed with powerful water techniques by the water dragon Nydry, had been protecting the islands until a hybrid by the name of Gemini, a servant of Ryazan's 9th Lock Europa, had come along and defeated them in battle. Lystra decided to help protect these outlying islands from the raids, as they had become almost a monthly event. She stayed within Marrow for months, continually protecting from small raids. Then one day Gemini was sent again to the islands. Lystra defeated the servant, which gained her the trust of the Sassagirans and they asked her to be the new champion of the Sassagira and protect the islands of the serpent sea from further raids. She accepted and was lead to a sacred place, where the previous champion had communed with Nydry.
The only land entrance is located on a tiny remote island in the Serpent Sea. Within the Coral Caves she met Nydry, a powerful dragon spirit labeled as one of the Exalted. She petitioned Nydry to be her champion and, after hearing her story, the dragon agreed. She returned to Marrow where she stayed the Sassagiran champion in case the raids ever began again, until she was called back to her home country for the war.
Having special training from Harvel Hariko at a young age, Lystra is adept in her use of the water affinity. She practiced mostly in enhancer style techniques that allowed her to create powerful attacks by using strong jets of pressurized water. Lystra's techniques are created using highly pressurized water formed into thin, elegant streams. This style requires that she maintains a high amount of control over her art, which she has achieved due to her special training in Hariko.
Nydry, The Coral Mother
Lystra, being championed by Nydry, is able to access some of the water dragon's great powers. She is able to both partially and fully invoke her possession-like connection to gain an amazing boost in battle as well as utilize the various techniques of the dragon herself. When invoking Nydry, Lystra gains a long finned tail and dragon horns and parts of her skin becomes scaly and her hands and forearms turn dragon-like. Her horns, tail, and arms all are a greenish, sea blue in the pattern of a koi fish.
