|First game||Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken|
Lady Lyndis, who was named after her maternal grandmother, is one of the three protagonists of Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken, the other two are Eliwood and Hector. She is the second female lord in the Fire Emblem series, but the first actual lord to appear internationally in a Fire Emblem game. Lady Lyndis can use both swords and bows. She was born in the Sacean Plains, and is usually called Lyn instead of her whole name. Her father is Hassar; who is the chief of the Lorca tribe, and he mother is Madelyn; who is the daughter of the Lord Hausen of Caelin.
Before the game Madelyn marries Hassar, which makes her father so blinded with rage that he disowned his only daughter. However he regreted disowning her after Madelyn wrote a letter to him, so he sent Sain and Kent to look for them and apologize. However Lyn's parents were killed, by bandits. After her parent's death, Lyn lived alone until she met "the Tactician" (which is the player). Later on she meets two knights of Caelin (Kent and Sain; were commanded by Hausen to find Lyn) that inform her she has a living grandfather named "Hausen" that has been wanting to meet her and welcome her into his home.
On her way she notices an old priest being attacked by mercenaries, she rescues him from them. As a sign of gratitude the old man allowed her to try and draw the Mani Katti (a sacred weapon that can only be drawn by one person), it turns out she is that person that can draw the legendary sword.
When she gets to Caelin she finds out that her grandfather's brother, the cruel and ambitions Lundgren, is poisoning Hausen; in order to succeed his power. Lyndis recruits companions in hopes of saving Hausen. Then Lundgren commands his soldiers to kill Lyndis, as she is higher in line to inheriting Hausen's power.
It is up to Lyndis and her recruits to defeat Lundgren's forces, as well as defeating Lundgren. It is after Lundgren's defeat that she meets her grandfather for the first time. They decide to live together, but it was only for a year since Caelin was ivaded by enemies. It is here that Lyn decides to join Hector and Eliwood to try and defeat the Black Fang.
Super Smash Bros. series
Lyn was made into an assist trophy in the very anticipated Nintendo fighting game Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Many fans were displeased since they had wanted her playable in that title, as she would have been the "perfect" female choice for Fire Emblem. Lyn appears and kneels down on the ground at the ready for a few moments. Then, all of a sudden she speeds at an opponent and delivers one devastating slash, with high knockback.
A interesting point is that she shares a quote "Prepare yourself" with the playable character Ike.
In the game Lyndis has both a trophy and a sticker. When the player places a Lyn sticker on a character's trophy, the food effect will be raised by seven.
