During their journey, Lyra and Dawn become good friends, despite Lyra consistently calling Dawn, "Dane" (Dawn eventually gives up trying to correct her). On a few occasions, she has asked Dawn embarrassing questions about her love life (such as when she asked Dawn if Ash was her boyfriend). She also tried to play matchmaker between her friend Khoury and Dawn in A Rivalry to Gible On.
Marill first appeared in An Egg Scramble! and is seen by her side most of the time.
