Lyra is a tall woman with blue eyes with long eyelashes and her waist-length blond hair is noticeably curled at the ends despite being otherwise relatively straight. Her lips are clearly defined and depicted as being rather full. Though slender, Lyra also sports a rather muscular build, which gives off a clear air of command.
She wears the common Marine uniform under a long leather jacket. She also sports white gloves and is always seen with her saber on her person.
Lyra is a severe woman with a fearsome and commanding presence. Harsh with her subordinates and peers and coldly merciless to her enemies, the deceptively beautiful woman's sang-froid has earned her the nickname "Ice Queen" among the Drum soldiers. Sharp-tongued and highly combative, the Ice Queen is no stranger to furious chastisements and bursts of fiery violence, especially toward those who fail to live up to her high standards
Although she is royalty in the eyes of the world government, Lyra does not let this go to her head. Her arrogance is concealed and she often even ignores the fact that she is the daughter of a Gorosei. She is an authority figure to her men first and above all else, often choosing to stay within the fortress rather then stay in the comfort of her own luxorious estate. She takes her commanding role very seriously and has earned the undying loyalty of her men with her hands-on approach to leadership on and off the field of battle. While she cannot be said to have a "soft spot" for anyone in particular, Lyra is a deceptively caring and selfless individual, prone to taking great risks in order to protect the lives and well-being of those who have placed their trust in her.
