Lyon Bane (リオン・ベーン, Rion Bein) is a Mage currently working under Xerxes Hohenheim in the Magic Council's Fiore Branch. His extraordinary feats and his previous apprenticeship to former Wizard Saint Harry Houdini has given him much fame across the continent, and thus granted him honors of the same tier as his late mentor.
Underneath the light of fame, Lyon hides an inextinguishable hatred for Dark Guilds and any associated factions. Having lost his younger twin to the allures of evil, Lyon was burdened with the responsibility of his family's defamation within the Council. Although he had found some degree of peace underneath the tutelage of the "Old Escapee", the former Wizard Saint's death by Blood Alliance forced Lyon to revert to his previous self.
Now working with covert agent Raevyn, Lyon's eyes seek only to extinguish Dark Guilds from the face of his country and, in doing so, avenge his master. To this end, he is fearfully regarded as the "White Scourge" (白苦源, Shiro Kugen), whose very presence causes alerts caution and fear among all Dark Guilds that dare to face him.
