Means of Getting There

Jason Walker was unlucky enough to be swallowed by a hippopotamus in order to get to Lyrian. Jason was working at Vista Point Zoo when he heard music coming from the hippo tank. Jason leaned over and fell, getting swallowed and transported to Lyrian as a result. A very rare way of getting there. It is possible to reach Lyrian by going through portals in deep caves, natural stone arches, deep wells, and other such places. Rachel Woodruff was transported to Lyrian by walking through a stone arch in Arches National Park while touring with her parents and a guide. She was guided through the arch by a butterfly sent by Erinda. To get back to earth or the Beyond, a portal was required. Such a portal existed near Felrook. Jason used this portal by sink through the pool with Ferrin's hand.
