Lyude is a major character and party member in Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean.
Lyude is the illegitimate child of Almarde, formerly of Azha, and Lyuvann, an aristocrat from Mintaka. He was born two years into their affair. Although he considers Almarde his mother, he is unaware of their shared blood, having known her as a foster nurse. The affair is among the reasons his siblings, Skeed and Vallye, resent him.
It is unclear if he knew of his mixed heritage prior to Skeed referencing his "stone-carver's blood", as he identifies Camilla as his mother, even reacting with some surprise to Skeed's statement.
Joining the Party
Two years prior to the events of Eternal Wings, Azha reduced ore shipments, resulting in Geldoblame's ire. He ordered a mass execution of Azhani, to which Lyude protested for Almarde's sake. Spared a court martial by his family's history of service, Lyude was demoted and exiled to Diadem as ambassador.
Lyude first appears in Nashira, where he bemoans the poor relationship between the two countries. Later, when the empire attacks Castle Elnath, he protests both the assertion that Diadem was readying an assault and the attempted assassination of Ladekahn. He joins the party to fend off the Iron Beetle V.
At the Shrine of the Winds, he gives the Le End Magnus to Ayme while "under a powerful form of hypnosis". This furthers his misgivings with regards to his homeland, leading to his permanent addition to the party.
Lyude is often the first to come to conclusions regarding the empire, such as identifying Savyna as an imperial soldier and naming Folon. He is highly cognizant of his social standing within the context of his background and environment, particularly where it concerns the perceptions of his allies.
Upon returning to Alfard, he takes the party to his family's house to rest and gather information, whereupon Almarde dies defending him from Skeed and Vallye. All three would later show up amongst the phantoms conjured by Rampulus to torment Lyude.
At the Victory Banquet, Kalas persuades Lyude to rebuild Alfard as one of the leaders of the new world. In the end credits, Lyude is shown aiding in the reconstruction efforts.
Lyude attacks in battle using Sound Shock Guns, modified from various Brass instruments. All of his offensive Magnus fall under either Physical, Light, or Dark elements. Since most bosses and a sizable chunk of monsters fall under either Light or Dark elements, Lyude can be an effective party member for exploiting elemental weaknesses.
As mentioned, Lyude attacks using Brass.
Lyude, like Gibari and Kalas, can use only Armor Magnus, Helmet Magnus, and Shield Magnus, however the number of shields he can use is notably fewer, and he also misses out on a few armors.

Lyude's finishing moves alternate between the Light and Dark elements. Of note is the fact that his Light based Finishing Moves involve Lyude shooting his gun at the enemy, whereas his Dark based Finishing Moves involve Lyude directly striking the enemy. Lyude refers to his Finishing Moves as "Extreme Attacks" and, keeping with the theme with his musical weapons, all of his Finishing Moves are named after musical terms. They are as follows:
|Level I- Overture, a Light elemental attack. Lyude shoots a single laser at the enemy.|
|Level II- Concerto, a Light elemental attack slightly stronger than Overture. Lyude fires machine gun shots at the enemy.|
|Level III- Sforzando, a Dark elemental attack. Lyude punches the enemy several times.|
|Level IV- Diminuendo, a Dark elemental attack. Lyude shoots himself into the enemy.|
|Level V- Intermezzo, a Light elemental attack. Lyude throws a mine at the enemy, then shoots the mine, causing it to explode.|
|Level VI- Crescendo, a Dark elemental attack. Lyude kicks the enemy several times.|
|Level VII- Rhapsody, a Light elemental attack. Lyude traps the enemy inside a holy seal.|
|Level VIII- Presto, a Dark elemental attack. Lyude propels himself into the enemy with his gun, very similar to Diminuendo.|
|Level IX- Finale, Lyude's ultimate finishing move. It is Light elemental. Lyude blasts the enemy several times with a massive turret.|
