Lyndsay has the ability to turn in a cat-like humanoid, giving her sharp teeth, glowing yellow eyes, and sharp finger nails. Her branded mark on her face also comes out when this happens. She can turn into this form only if she really has to, since it takes up a lot of energy and can make her weary once she returns to her normal form. She becomes faster and stronger in her cat form, but her defense drops by half to balance it out.Swords Name:

Lyndsay is a kind-hearted and funloving young adult who enjoys being with the people she loves. She has a tough outer shell and tends to keep her guard up all the time, even though you can't really notice it. Lyndsay is very loyal to her father and is willing to do anything to see him happy. She even took up piano to help calm him down whenever he was mad. She is very stubborn and knows how to manipulate people quite well. She is often hated because of this.Fighting/Battling:
On the battlefield, Lyndsay changes into a whole new person. She becomes all serious and never lets her enemy trick or smooth talk her. No one can really tell what is going through her mind when she's confronting an enemy. Lyndsay never attacks the enemy first, due to her kinder nature. She will sacrifice herself for her allies if necessary.Personality Towards the Following People:King Ashnard:
Lyndsay's adoptive father and 13th King of Daein, Lyndsay looks up to him as a real father. She is loyal to him and does whatever it takes to make him happy and out of his foul moods. Even though he treats Lyndsay as his real daughter, he just uses her for his dirty work. She never realizes Ashnard's plans until she is told of them from the Greil Mercenaries. After that, she completely turns against him and sets out to stop his madness.King Phillip:
Lyndsay biological father, someone she despises with a burning passion. She wishes for one day to find her real father and confront him on why he abandoned her and left her with a mad man. She never really meets her father, but she does receive letters from him, asking for her forgiveness. Lyndsay, as stubborn as an ox, disregards the letters as if they were nothing. Deep down, Lyndsay truly loves Phillip and wishes he was a better father for her.Mist Greil:
Lyndsay met Mist when she was brought into the mercenary camp, and became quite fond of her. Mist likes to be around Lyndsay and they both share stories quite often before going to bed. Lyndsay, like Ike of Mist, is very overprotective of her. She would give up her life to save Mist, along with Rolf. Mist sees Lyndsay as the older sister she never had.Ike Greil:
Like an old married couple, Ike and Lyndsay are constantly at each other's throats. They both have similar personalities and they tend to collide from time to time, resulting in a terrible fight. Since they fight so much, they are hardly ever seen together. Oscar:
When they first met, Lyndsay didn't really like him and tended not to speak much to him. Even so, Oscar was still nice and polite to her, hoping that she would talk to him using more than just a few words. She became more open to him when he, unintentionally, cooked one of Lyndsay's favorite meals. Ever since, Lyndsay would train with Oscar and he would tell her stories about when he was a Crimean knight. It was only after defeating Ashnard that Lyndsay realized she was in love with Oscar. At the end of Radiant Dawn
, Oscar went to be a knight for Queen Elincia, and having a hatred towards Elincia and her country, Lyndsay chose to stay behind with the mercenaries. They see each other often, at least four or more times a week. Boyd:
Just like Ike, Boyd and Lyndsay rarely ever get along. Boyd doesn't trust her, and wants her to leave the camp. He sees her as a time bomb, waiting to lure in more Daein soldiers to kill them. Lyndsay tries to reason with him, telling him that she is not a spy, but he doesn't believe her and always puts up a wall of ice between him and her when they are together. Oscar constantly scolds his brother for his childish ways, but Boyd's reaction would always be the same: He would roll his eyes and say that Lyndsay had him wrapped around her pinky.Background Information:
Lyndsay was born in Simbodia, a country north of Crimean high in the mountains. Since Simbodia and Daein are/were allies, King Ashnard came to visit the newborn and immediately saw potential in her. Since Simbodia had just gotten out of a war with Galiea, they were quite weak, so Ashnard so this as his advantage. He told Phillip to give up his child to him or war would begin. Shocked and terrified to sacrifice more of his people, he agreed and handed Lyndsay over without telling Shiva, Lyndsay's mother. She was brought back to Daein and raised there. Worried that she might run away, Ashnard kept Lyndsay in the castle and warned her to never leave. She kept this promise and stayed inside the castle, reading or drawing to her hearts content. She has no memory of her real parents until, one day when was 11 she finds a picture of them in a book in the castle library. She sees the resemblence and confronts her "father" with the picture, asking him if they are her parents. Ashnard is ready to lie, but knows he can't because he knows Lyndsay would escape the castle and run away to find the truth for herself. So, he tells her the truth. Leaving out the part where he practically gave Phillip an ultimatum.
At first, Lyndsay avoids talking to Ashnard, not wanting to have anything to do with him, until at the age of 13, she realizes that Ashnard has been a better father to her than her biological one.
