Lysander also known as Ly prefers to live in Florence, Italy with his brother Plum. Lysander is a composer who in his mid-thirties impetuously flung his bachelorhood aside and married Violante a month after meeting her at the opera. Ly and Violante have a passionate relationship filled with bouts of temper where things are often thrown to make a point.

Lysander travels with Violante to Bellmont Abbey during Christmas 1888 because his father demanded it.

He and Violante presently have two children.
