After the events that transpired in the Emerald Canopy, Lyra felt a longing to share her experiences and the lessons she had learned with the people she had left behind. She realized that to truly protect the forest, she needed to expand its circle of protectors beyond just herself.
She reached out to her family, first through letters filled with descriptions of her life in the forest, the wonders she had witnessed, and the bonds she had formed. However, she was careful not to reveal the forest’s exact location or the identities of Mezereon and Nerys, having learned the dangers of such information falling into the wrong hands.
Her family, initially confused and worried about Lyra’s decision to live in a forest, were moved by her passionate letters. They began to understand her connection to the forest and the vital role she had come to play in its preservation.
Eventually, Lyra invited them to visit her, guiding them to her dwelling without revealing the path to the deeper parts of the Emerald Canopy. There, they saw the remarkable work she was doing and met some of the friendlier creatures of the forest.
This visit marked the beginning of a new chapter in Lyra’s relationship with her family. They became involved in her conservation efforts, helping to spread awareness and advocate for legal protections. They became a part of the extended family of the Emerald Canopy, and in doing so, they found a deeper connection with nature and Lyra herself.
Though they were initially taken aback by her new life, they grew to understand and respect her choices. They saw the positive impact she was making and were proud to be part of her efforts. Lyra’s commitment to the forest and its creatures bridged the gap between her and her family, strengthening their bond in an unexpected yet beautiful way.
