Lyssa is the eldest child of Roman Delaney, Sr. and Jetta Havich Delaney. She has a fraternal twin named Dahlia, two younger brothers named Vesper and Roman Jr., and a younger sister named Morrigan. She is one of 14 grandchildren of Sigurd and Agneta Havich.
Lyssa was born in Boston, Massachusetts, USA by demand of her paternal grandparents, but she spent most all of her life in Oslo, Norway and considers that her home. Being the first born grandchild on the Havich side, and the first girl grandchild on the Delaney side, meant that Lyssa has had a lot of expectations placed upon her. Though he parents are very loving and relatively permissive, the rest of her family is not always so. Lyssa is closer to her father who had a less demanding job than her mother, but she loves and had a good relationship with both parents. Now that Jetta is the Muggle Studies Professor at Hogwarts, Lyssa hopes she’ll be able to get closer to her mother.
Asides from expectations, Lyssa has lived a relatively charmed life. Her family is wealthy from running Havich Industries and well known for it; she’s also quite pretty, and she’s very intelligent. This has not spared her from depression and anxiety, however. While she is kind and friendly on the outside, inside she has a bad case of self-loathing, as well as other traits she tries to push down. She tries to not let it affect how she treats others though. Only herself.
Until her mother became a Hogwarts professor, Lyssa attended the Gammla Uppsala School of Sei∂r in Gammla Uppsala, Sweden. She was a top student there, and expects to remain as such at Hogwarts. She attended with all of her siblings and various cousins. While Lyssa loves her siblings, she is rather standoffish with them, including with her own twin. She is very independent, and she’s actually rather glad she was the only one sorted into Gryffindor.
Unbeknownst to most, Lyssa cannot stand her two cousins Bjørn and Cana. She hates that she is expected to get along and eventually run a company with them. They are both evil, Dark, and vindictive compared to Lyssa who’s worst qualities are far more mundane. She will never admit it to herself though, that she is just as capable of being as manipulative as they are, and she has been in the past.
Lyssa has never had much time for boys. She rather thinks most of them are after her for her family’s money, so she automatically distrusts any boy who flirts with her. She has been known to manipulate boys for her amusement, though she would never admit it.
Overall, Lyssa tries to be a good person. She is fighting a lot of darkness, and she is generally succeeding. She is mostly kind and compassionate, intelligent, bold, and precise. She is also (to a lesser extent) manipulative, cruel, and vindictive. Lyssa tries to control the latter for favor of the former, but it doesn’t always work out.
