the Lyrus Herd


One of the "Original Three" herds founded in the Genesis Era of Year One, the Lyrus is a herd of power and pride and founded by the formidable Syrilth. It was created beneath the ideals of War and Battle being necessary evils but only when properly wielded, and the horses of Lyrus are no exception. They are hardened, strong horses and due to the herdlands being the volatile Red Waste, they are also able to survive in a climate that many others could not. While they tread a neutral line it isn't uncommon for those of Lyrus to sway to either side of that line, making them a powerful cornerstone of Elysium's herds and often the tipping point of any alliance or stronghold.

Firstborn Vega
"I am Vega: the lyre, the strong, the bright one. I beat the drums of battle and soothe the hurts of warriors past. Look to me for strength and blessing in battle."

The third of the Firstborn to rise from the Creation Pool, Vega is a warrior goddess above all else. Every facet of her exudes power and strength and she is reputed to be the fiercest of all the Firstborns. Those who would call her matron do so diligently, for she does not tolerate disloyalty of any sort. Her coat is a rich mahogany that gleams bright red beneath the sun along the Red Waste, and while she bears no mane (it is roached to the crest along her neck) there is still a certain femininity to her appearance. Darker dapples splash her shoulders and hips and, most notably, she is the only Firstborn that has wings.
