Equipment: Custom-enchanted light armor and dual-wielded swords of choice.

Shouts: I avoided using shouts; Lyra is from another time and place, and her quest wasn’t really about “being the Dragonborn.” I did use Slow Time, but primarily for late-game roleplay as Lyra began to channel the God of Time. Perhaps most notably, her connection to Akatosh manifests in the Warrior’s Flame ability from the restoration tree; augmented by the Restoration perks listed below, this turns her into a walking holy terror in combat.
