[[folder: ''Yewbeam / Bone Family'']]







!! Lyell Bone
Charlie's father, and Amy's husband. He is an organist who disappeared in 1994 while trying to stop the abduction of Emma Tolly. [[spoiler: He is hypnotized by Manfred Bloor into forgetting who he is and spends the next ten years disguised as a teacher at Bloor's Academy. He is eventually woken up and is reunited with his wife and son. During the last three books, he and Amy pretend to go on a second honeymoon while Lyell roams the city as the Red Knight]].
* ActionDad: [[spoiler: Rides around the Red King's city disguised as the Red Knight, protecting the Red King's children, including his own son. At the very end he battles Count Harken in a duel during the final battle and is able to hold his own very well against him.]]
* {{Brainwashed}}: By Manfred Bloor, eight years before the beginning of the series, for trying to prevent the abduction of Emma Tolly (and also because he knocked Ezekiel Bloor to the ground, crippling him permanently).
* BrainwashResidue: It's said that Lyell did not immediately fully recover from his long ordeal by the time of the events of book six. [[spoiler: He is implied to be all better at the end of ''Red Knight'', though]].
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler: He's Mr. Pilgrim, the strange piano teacher at Bloor's Academy. He's also the Red Knight in books six, seven, and eight]].
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not including his probably troubled childhood (and with a mother like Grizelda Bone, one can't expect his childhood to be a completely happy one) he's hypnotized in 1994 and spends ten years in a state of dazed forgetfulness, lost to his wife and child.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[spoiler: Lyell defeats and kills Count Harken, a powerful enchanter, in the final book, being only armed with armour, an enchanted sword and the mare that is Queen Berenice. He isn't even endowed]].
* DisappearedDad: His dad, Monty Bone, was killed in 1963 when his plane crashed in a desert.
* {{Elopement}}: Lyell eloped to Mexico with Amy Jones and married her there.
* FakeTheDead: The Bloors faked Lyell's death by making him crash his car into a quarry.
* FightingFromTheInside: While hypnotised, he's aware that something is wrong with him. It's implied that he tries to break through the hypnosis and regain his lost memories when the cathedral bells toll at midday and midnight.
* HappilyMarried: To Amy, before his disappearance. And after he is woken up.
* HaveWeMet: When Amy and Charlie meet him in the chapel in book five, Lyell has no idea who they are, though he seems to know that he should recognize them.
* HopeBringer: Lyell fulfills this role in the last three books as he [[spoiler: acts as the Red Knight, the only person said to be able to save the city from Harken]].
* IdentityAmnesia: During his trance he has no memories of his old life.
* IOweYouMyLife: Lyell practically says this to Charlie after the battle on the heath.
* KickedUpstairs: At the end of the last book, [[spoiler: Lyell becomes the owner of Bloor's Academy as he is the true heir to Maybelle's will]].
* LossOfIdentity: The result of his hypnotization.
* MarryForLove: He married Amy for love, something that earned him the ire of most of his family.
* MessyHair: When Charlie first sees him, he is described as having unkempt hair that Charlie at first thinks he forgot to comb.
* MysteriousPast: While he's hypnotized, he's frequently thought of as mysterious. No one knows where he came from, or how he came to Bloor's Academy.
* [[spoiler: MysteriousProtector: Lyell is this in the last three books. The children and adults in the city (except for a chosen few) have no idea he is the Red Knight]].
* NeverFoundTheBody: Even though his car crashed into a quarry, his body was never found. [[spoiler: This is because the Bloors and Yewbeams dragged him out of the car just before it went over the edge of the quarry]].
* NiceGuy: He's certainly nicer than the rest of the Yewbeams, excluding Paton.
* NotHimself: When he came back from the cathedral after being hypnotized. Amy tells Charlie in the first book that it was as if he were under a spell.
* OnlyFriend: Lyell was most likely Paton's only friend before his disappearance.
* ScrewtheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: This seems to be his attitude for most of the series.
* SecretKeeper: He's the keeper of the box containing Maybelle's will.
* SecretLegacy: [[spoiler: he's the true heir to Maybelle's will]].
* TheConfidant: To Rufus Raven.
* TheDeterminator: And ''how''. Even after ten years of spellbound silence, he's still determined to bring the Bloors down.
* TheOnlyOneITrust: Lyell was (presumably) the only one Rufus trusted to guard the box containing Maybelle's will.
* ThePianoPlayer: Lyell is a gifted pianist and organist. According to Gabriel, he is absolutely brilliant.
%%* ThePowerOfLove:
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: In the last three books. Though he is still recovering from his ten-year-long trance, Lyell chooses to roam around the city as the Red Knight, protecting the endowed children, including his own son. With a mare that used to be the Queen, an unbeatable sword, and the Red King's cloak, he kills a fair amount of enemies during very dramatic battles. He even kills ''Count Harken Badlock'', a powerful enchanter and the BigBad of the series]].
* WistfulAmnesia: During his spellbound years, Lyell has no memories of his past life but senses that something is wrong with him. At midnight and midday, when the cathedral clock chimes, the hypnotism weakens briefly and he can sense hidden memories. When Amy and Charlie meet him in the Academy chapel, he doesn't recognize them but realizes that he should.
