|Chronological and political information|
Ryll was a male, wingless lyrinx who was originally ostracised by his people, due to his deformity. It was Ryll who originally captured Tiaan Liise-Mar and her ampliment and later allowed her to escape, due to her having saved his life. He was very strong in the Secret Art, especially in regards to flesh-forming.
Due to his talents, Ryll rose in station among the lyrinx, though he had a deformity. He worked closely with Liett, who he loved and even gained the ear of Matriarch Gyrull, using his abilities to create a flisnadr on her orders.
Before Gyrull's death, she named Ryll her successor as leader of the lyrinx, making him the first Patriarch in three thousand years. Later, the lyrinx were defeated by the old humans at the Battle of Ashmode and were helped to flee to Tallallame by Tiaan. Ryll and Liett ruled the lyrinx on Tallallame and married; though Liett was killed when they led a force of lyrinx to Santhenar to aid Cryl-Nish Hlar.
