Lyrica, the Poltergeist Keyboardist is a custom Touhou champion in League of Legends.
Notes and Nonsense
The Prismriver sisters consist of 3 members - Lunasa, Merlin and Lyrica. Lyrica is the youngest of the three. All three of them aren't actually the real sisters, but poltergeists created by the late Layla Prismriver, who is the youngest of the actually four sisters, not three. As poltergeists they are mere images of what they are commanded to imitate as. Despite being the youngest, she is the most talented of the three, with a mischievous personality. She has the ability to generate music that's is heard using the soul, not ears. Her music is the only one where it does not negatively affect the listeners. Perfect, but soulless.
"The soul of this keyboard is already packed with sounds that have passed away."― Lyrica Prismriver
- Passive: Now then, since her music does not affect the soul of listeners, this means it only affects herself, or if she allows it, to affect the holder of the keyboard, giving movement speed. That old man is Edvard Grieg, if you're wondering. His piece, Last Spring, is featured on the background of their spell cards
- Q: Single target soft CC. This ability pushes away champions, meaning it won't affect channeling spells, kinda like how you would put Trundle's Pillar of Filth on top of Katarina's Death Lotus. This ability's name is named after the late Sébastien_Érard, a famous French piano maker favourited by legendary composers such as Beethoven and Chopin.
- W: Skillshot conditional slow. Use this to escape, or chase, etc. This ability only slows enemies who are going in the opposite direction of the skillshot. This ability's name is named after an Italian piano brand Fazioli, producing 110 high-quality pianos annually.
- E: Provides Lyrica an on-hit effect on her attacks and gives her additional attack damage based on enemie's base attack damage. Additionally, she may extend her range by sticking her keyboard to an ally, and abilities will be fired out of the keyboard instead. In addition, both of Lyrica's passives are transferred to the ally instead. This ability is named after Steinway and Sons, a German piano manufacturer which has earned many awards and has the title of "the most expensive pianos".
- R: Damage, heal and gapcloser ultimate. You have to choose your playstyle to make the best use of this ultimate. Risk it and do damage? Or use it to escape? Or use it to heal allies? Choose. This ability is named after Bösendorfer, an Austrian piano manufacturer famous for creating one of the only few models that can withstand Franz Listz's powerful plays.

Lyrica is designed to be a support, while also capable of being a "soft" AD carry if she's fed. This means she hovers between these two roles, and it's up to the player to decide how to play her as. Her performance is boring lorewise, so her kit is kinda "boring" in a sense too. The theme here is being generic.
Oh, this is also the first I'm kinda shaky with a concept's balance, feel free to criticize harshly and point out any sort of overpowered/underpowered stuff if you can. --Mineko Charat Lucky (talk) 12:59, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
