gracefully curving ebonwood lyra viol with silver-gilded tuning keys
Look: The lyra viol resembles a cross between a violin and a lute, having a large body with a sharply concave waist to allow the player to brace it over his thigh, and a narrow neck with gut frets. While the musician holds it as he would a lute, the lyra viol is played with a bow rather than a pick. It is considered a sophisticated instrument, associated in literature with the court of Queen Morganae of the Mountain Elves.

Recall

An instrument from Elven culture, the lyra viol is favored particularly by Mountain Elves. Resembling a cross between a violin and a lute, the lyra viol has a large body with a sharply concave waist to allow the player to brace it over his thigh, and a narrow neck with gut frets. While the musician holds it as one would a lute, the lyra viol is played with a bow rather than a pick. It is considered a sophisticated instrument, and is associated in literature with the court of Queen Morganae Sunderstone.
