Hope can be dangerous, her father told her during those nights under starlight, when he taught her the names of those that reigned in the sky. They ranged from the Winter’s Breath of Odhrán to the three corners of the Winged Triangle. Lyra’s namesake flanked the southeast corner, brightening a pocket of the sky with its light.
