First Appearance

Chapter 1.55 R

Ysara Byres, also known as the Silver Trader, is a member of the Byres Family, and Ylawes and Yvlon's elder sister. She currently works in the north of Izril as an [Armored Merchant], selling armor and investing in rare alchemical ingredients such as silver.[1]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Her most prominent features are her indigo painted hair, long earrings on one ear, and a tattoo on an arm.[2]

After her duel against Comois, she’d lost the tip of one pinkie.[3]

Personality[edit | edit source]

According to Yvlon, she is relaxed compared to the rest of the family.[1] Ysara has something of a wild personality, and enjoys teasing her friends. She deeply cares for her siblings, given that she was willing to leave for Chandrar to help her sister, though she can be exasperated by Ylawes' righteous attitude. She makes good money by knowing what's in stock and being the provider for a number of good [Alchemists], and has become quite successful, to the point of earning the Silver Trader nickname.

Background[edit | edit source]

From a young age, Ysara and her siblings were taught swordsmanship. It became apparent that she was a prodigy with a sword. After a brief career as an adventurer, she became a respected [Merchant] in northern Izril. After years of hiding her sexuality for her family's sake, one day Ysara snapped, dying her hair indigo and shipped out to sea for three months, during which she had sexual encounters with multiple women. Afterwards, in southern Izril, she met and befriended Qwera, a fellow [Merchant] known as the Golden Gnoll.[2]

Chronology[edit | edit source]

While Yvlon and her teammates were scouting in the Bloodfields, she ventured into wondering how she’d do as a [Merchant], and so she started talking about Ysara.

Yvlon told them how gifted with a sword Ysara is, but instead of becoming a [Knight], she had become a [Merchant]. She kept saying that she was a good one, being an [Armored Merchant] that sells mainly armor, and that she works in the north of Izril.[1]

Ysara met with Qwera again in Beithstrel. After they talked, Qwera sought her out again afterwards to get her help smuggling Mrsha past the Plains Gnolls. She "bought" Mrsha from Qwera and then let Vetn steal her.[2]

She arrived at the Meeting of the Tribes with Qwera to deliver Mrsha to the Silverfang Tribe. Ysara had Qwera by some Demas Metal to by from her later, to get around the fact that it was only being sold to Gnolls.[4]

During the group chat about reviving Erin, she had Qwera petition Nerrhavia's Fallen to release her sister. They found out that she had already been freed.[5]

They would be reunited during the Battle of the Great Plains, when Yvlon and her team arrived to help fight the Plain's Eye alliance.[6]

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • (To Qwera) “Have you ever heard of a Wailant Strongheart? I’ve been thinking about killing him because he’s devaluing Sage’s Grass across the south.”
  • (To Mrsha) “Hello, Mrsha. Are you…Mrsha from The Wandering Inn? Of Liscor? My younger sister wrote to me about you.”
  • To Qwera:
    • “Qwera, one second you’re a nurturing, caring individual, the next, you’re a cold-hearted monster of a [Merchant].”
    • “You’re too nervous here, Qwera. You got Mri to safety—and the sky hasn’t fallen! Relax! Here. Have some fruit. Do I need to feed it to you with kisses?”
  • (To Ryoka) “I never felt much joy in victory over monsters or people with the blade. But if you want a warrior, I’d raise a blade and fight for that. Drawing a sword and telling my mother, telling Izril, ‘here I am, come silence me. Try to make me vanish.’ That? I would fight for that.
