Lyra found out the truth of their relationship and came to see Asriel, but he doesn’t want her there. Lyra is hurt, and she asks him why he withheld the information. She said that she was proud to have a father like him. Asriel asks her if she knew about her mother. To which she replied, “Your choice in women is almost as bad as your choice in bears.”
Then she realizes that her father was a monster as well. He tells her that Lyra Belacqua is too strong to cry to which she responds that she goes by the name Lyra Silvertongue as it was given to her by someone who loved her.
She is saddened by her behavior and tries to hand over the alethiometer, which he said he didn’t want. Lyra is angered and talks about everything she had to go through to attain it and asks him how he could call himself a father to which he responded,” “I’ve never called myself a father.”
