Lyrica Trevelyan, born in the winter of 9:19, is the third child (and second triplet) born to Bann Elric and Lady Eloise Trevelyan.

Overview Edit

Physical Appearance Edit

Like many Trevelyans, Lyrica has pale skin that has the tendency to burn with long exposure to sunlight. A scar runs from her left eyebrow down to her cheekbone, a souvenir from an encounter with men sent by her father to capture her. Her most notable feature, however, is the shoulder-length silver hair that she pulls back into a short ponytail.

Her lavender-grey eyes, inherited from her mother, are lined with a thick layer of kohl. This was a trick she learned during her time in Kirkwall's underground; sharp words and a fierce gaze accentuated by intimidating makeup does wonders keeping the thugs away. When that failed, an arrow in the jugular proved to be an excellent alternative. 

From her father, she inherited high cheekbones and a strong jaw. She stands approximately 5'8" tall, with powerful thighs and a toned upperbody that she developed through the acrobatics that were necessary to quickly navigate through Kirkwall's alleys and sewers.

Early Life Edit

Much to her family's dismay, Lyrica was born with silver hair. While it was simply a genetic quirk in the Trevelyan bloodline that appears every few generations, in family lore it marked her as one forsaken by Andraste.

After Lady Eloise's death in 9:21, Bann Elric Trevelyan was left to care for their children alone. As head of a prominent noble household however, he was an important man and had many other matters to attend to. As long as the children were well-behaved, obedient and regularly attended the Chants, he mostly did not involve himself in their day-to-day care. As a result, the Trevelyan children were mostly raised by an assortment of nannies and tutors. Eldest brother Astor was a special case; as he was the heir, once he turned eleven Bann Trevelyan took a more direct role in his upbringing.

The paths their other three children should take in life were still carefully planned out - the Trevelyan name was well-respected and the Bann would not have it besmirched. Lyrica and Ellery were promised to the Chantry, while Weston was to be given to the Templar Order. 

Lyrica was a restless child though, and Ostwick's Revered Mother quickly learned that cleric work did not suit her temperament. She persuaded her father to send her to join her brother with the templars.  

Kirkwall Edit

Kirkwall was in a vulnerable state after the resolution of the Qunari situation. Bann Trevelyan hoped to expand his influence in the Free Marches and gain Knight-Commander Meredith's favour by sending her a small unit of Ostwick's best, led by Knight-Commander Ivon Trevelyan. 16-year-old Lyrica was among those he sent - she was a promising templar recruit with leadership capabilities, and he believed Meredith would recognize that and keep her at Kirkwall, where she would eventually rise in the ranks (therefore extending the reach of the Trevelyan name).

Lyrica had other plans. Though she went through training without any outward complaints, she had no desire to become a templar nor live under her father's thumb, and the rumours she heard of the Gallows horrified her. Shortly after their arrival at Kirkwall, she saw an opportunity to escape and took it, disappearing into Kirkwall's underground. There, she would meet Mistress Selby and begin working for the Underground Railroad, smuggling mages out of the city.
