Lyra is the deity of those for whom music is a hobby and a pastime. When a village meets for a festival, she will be invoked - and the same for a small group of friends wanting to make music for fun. The few professional musicians who follow her are bards and minstrels, who travel the land carrying their songs and organizational expertise to new places. They can often get a whole town singing along to their latest tune. This wanderlust also makes her the patron of explorers who discover new lands and peoples. An old story tells of her love for a mortal, but the end is missing.
