Story[edit]

Cyra does not appear in the story text of any campaign levels.

Specialty[edit]

Cyra's specialty gives in addition to normal Haste speed bonuses
    +3 to creatures on level 1–2
    +2 to creatures on level 3–4
    +1 to creatures on level 5–6
    No additional bonus for creatures on level 7.

Although the in-game description of the specialty states, "based on hero level compared to the level of the target unit", the hero's level has no effect on the specialty.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

This specialty is especially useful in early game. With Expert Haste, Cyra's Master Gremlins will be faster than any creature below level 7 (and be tied with the Dragon Fly and the Efreet Sultan). This means at least two shots without distance penalty which can reduce losses significantly. Haste also make slow and defensive units like stone golem better in attacking and controling the more important hexes on the battlefield.

As Haste is one of the most useful spells, starting with it along with the ability to boost low-level creatures (which tend to have lower speed) further, makes her a powerful starting hero.
