Lyra and her daemon companion, Pantalaimon, happen upon a witch's daemon named Ragi, who has sought out Lyra's help to find an alchemist named Sebastian Makepeace, who may be able to help his witch, Yelena Pazhets, who has been struck by a mysterious illness.

The sturdy Lyra is a handsome device: its silver case is adorned by a shallow, circular inset with a decent-size five-line LCD in its center.
The fastest is the Lyra's simple desktop application, but since that (as well as the included version of Musicmatch) is PC-only, Mac users have to rely on the poky, battery-sapping onboard profiler, which can handle a maximum of just 3,500 files.
However, the Lyra is good for only playing music and storing data; you don't get an FM tuner, voice capture, or line-in recording.
