It is implied in Gone With the Windworks! that Lyra has an interest in Ash. She admires his bravery and wishes Khoury acted more like him. Lyra has even asked Dawn if she and Ash are a couple though Dawn informed her that they are just friends. Perhaps she was interested in Ash's spontaneousness, something that Khoury obviously lacks. In A Rivalry to Gible On!, she attempted to pair Khoury and Dawn together as a couple, despite Dawn's refusal, before eventually realizing she had feelings for the former.
