Lyude is a major character and party member in Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean.
Lyude is the illegitimate child of Almarde and Lyuvann. He looks much more like his mother and little like his siblings, and Skeed insults him by saying he has "stone-carver's blood" in his veins as a result of him being part Azhani. His siblings Skeed and Vallye resent him for this as they are purebred Empire citizens.
Lyude, even though his father Lyuvan and Almarde hid the truth from him, still thinks of Almarde as his mother.
His Mother's Son
Lyude, enters the story as an imperial officer and ambassador of the empire in Diadem. He is forced by his own moral convictions to betray his country during the invasion of Diadem; this was, however, not entirely unexpected. Lyude was a member of an aristocratic family in the empire and had already expressed displeasure with the empire's methods. He protested a genocidal operation against a small mining village, Azha, which rose up against the hard work which was pressed on them. The Empire used him, by controlling him through magical hypnosis, to get the End Magnus of Diadem. This left Lyude an outcast, a traitor to his own country who didn't feel he was worth the trust of others. In many instances he thought himself to be the main suspect when matters of trust were involved.
Lyude is faced with a bigger dilemma as the party infiltrated the Empire, where he is forced to take up arms against his fellow countrymen and his family. He is unable to do this, but his surrogate mother sacrifices herself to save him. Lyude was then a total emotional wreck, but suppresses his inner conflict on whether he should leave his past behind him or not for now. He started looking to other cultures for answers to his question on what to do, as is apparent from his continuous interest in how others live. Once the empire had fallen, he was faced with ghosts portraying to be his dead comrades and family, as they attempt to persuade him to join them in death, as a redemption for the fall of his country which he had caused. Lyude almost agreed to this, but was pulled from the brink of despair by the memory of his surrogate mother, who had taught him that answers were only found by oneself, never bestowed. And so he stands up against his inner ghosts, still not certain on what to do, but confident to look for answers himself.
At the party celebrating the end of the war against Malpercio, Lyude lets himself be persuaded by Kalas to help rebuild a new empire, and perhaps lead it himself. The fact that he follows up on this advice appears to imply that Lyude has found his answer, and also laid his inner conflict to rest.
Lyude attacks in battle using 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 (Sforzando, Intermezzo, Overture, Rhapsody, etc). 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.|
