Lyra and Nyx Penumbra fled from their homeland with only one goal in mind: to find some place where they could live that would be free of the turmoil and strife they experienced in their natal pack. Lyra did not set out to be a leader, but the need to protect her sister from the dangers they had faced in their life as rogues spurred her to become one. She wanted to protect those who needed her protection, and bring together those lost souls who needed some place to call home.
That dream became a reality when she met with other like-minded wolves- Kestrel, a young she-wolf seeking her own path in life, and Finn, who was searching for companions he had met in the valley and come to care about. Lyra helped bring them all together, forging a family in this new valley, and in late autumn of Year One, Lyra, Nyx, Kestrel, Finn, and Gerrik formed the Starfall Cadre on the shores of Cloudmirror Lake.
