Born and raised on a farm in the south of the Kingdom of the Reach, Lyanna lived a simple life till the age of thirteen, all the while tending to the normal living of a farm girl. Her father was a war veteran and expert bowmen who had later settled down to the farm where he raised his family, and taught what he knew to his three daughters. One summer on the farm, a band of brigands came to raid and pillage the surrounding area, Lyanna's family was not spared. In the course of the raid her father was killed and she and her sisters were raped, only she survived the incident and was rescued and brought to a healer by a band of travelers who happened by at the right time.

For some time after the incident she recovered physically under the care of the travelers, and from there she began her own travels across the land, far from emotionally recovered. Her travels ranged far and wide through much of the Reach, the North, and the Empire. As she wandered with various bands or went out alone she picked up various skills to survive, such as pick pocketing, lock picking, and general thievery. She learned to use her looks as a woman to her advantage, and along the way trusted too much on several occasions. She once spent time with a knight that rescued her from a pair of brigands, but said knight only wanted her for himself and so she ran, taking his prized dirk, she has since been largely distrusting of the intentions of men, but remains infallibly curious about them. During her time going from town to town in the Empire she spent some time as part of a dance troop as a dancer, it was there she learned that her looks as a woman went a long way into stealing both valuables and secrets from the men she enticed.

Though she has been injured, hurt, and torn inside a number of times she still tries to survive, tries to find purpose in a world that seems to move all around her. She has no one to seek revenge on, as she knows nothing about the men who killed her family and raped her. She has no family to find, she is just alone in a large world, trying to survive, and she still is too young to make sense of its chaos.
