| Lynus Wesselbaum & Edrea Lloryrr |
Since their mentor’s withdrawal from such pursuits, Lynus Wesselbaum and Edrea Lloryrr have taken the lead in cataloging the wonders of Caen in place of the famous professor Viktor Pendrake. With a strong knack for survival and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, they have already pursued countless dangerous expeditions and shared more than a few close calls, forging a strong friendship in the field. Lynus’ book smarts and sharp memory serve as an excellent complement to Edrea’s arcane gifts, and the pair has made a name for themselves in many academic circles.

Thoughts on Lynus Wesselbaum & Edrea Lloryrr
Lynus Wesselbaum & Edrea Lloryrr in a nutshell
Lynus and Edrea are a strange pair of utility models. Edrea provides cloud removal. Lynus has a weak heal and a lousy ranged or melee attack, but Applied Knowledge can help a caster or solo take out an aspect or system. Edrea makes them resistant to non-magical shooting but blasts or sprays can still do them in.
Combos & Synergies
- Since you can't target models behind clouds for ranged attacks they benefit just about any caster with a ranged focus.
- Any model with Grievous Wounds, especially Alten Ashley. If you can use Applied Knowledge on him, you can easily take out a warbeast's Spirit and deny it the ability to do anything useful for at least a turn.
- Any non battle engine War-noun would love Applied Knowledge, especially ones like Captain Kara Sloan with access to multiple attacks per activation.
- They were tailor made for Crosse2. Applied Knowledge makes his gun that much more effective and Wind Burst solves his cloud problem.
- Lukas di Morray really appreciates healing from Lynus and Dr. Morely so he can leverage his juice abilities. Wind barrier can help prevent Dr. Morely from getting shot off the table during his minifeat, and Lukas can use applied knowledge quite effectively.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- They are a support unit and only useful in certain situations or with a select few casters. They probably won't make their points back in terms of damage output.
Tricks & Tips
- Bring the pair if you are worried about cloud walls - Edrea is very good at clearing them. The pair are adequate if the enemy doesn't have a cloud wall (Edrea especially) but are as much anti-cloud-wall tech as anything.
