In 50 AC, Lyra was one of three women sent to Queen Alysanne Targaryen on Dragonstone by Dowager Queen Alyssa Velaryon, to see to Queen Alysanne's religious instruction. Her companions were Septa Ysabel, the novice Edyth, and the famously pious Lady Lucinda Tully.

An aurochs is a type of large wild cattle that once dwelled in the majority of Westeros. However, because of hunting and domestication they have dwindled in the wild and are not often seen. One place reportedly still inhabited by wild aurochs is near the juncture of the kingsroad and the Green Fork of the Trident in the riverlands. They still dwell beyond the Wall, where the Free Folk employ them to drag sledges.
Aurochs are frequently used as a symbol of size, strength, stubbornness, and stupidity. They have shaggy hair.
