During the novel The Golden Compass by Phillip Pullman Lyras life follows the quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson to strive to seek to find and not to yield As she matures through her experiences the dimension of this credo changes At the beginning of the novel she lives her life from day to day plays around with other children and all she wants is a new adventure At the same time however she knows that even though the scholars of Jordan College look after her and give her a place to stay at night Jordan College is not her home Even though she tries hard to make it her home she is unsuccessful However as she stays with Mrs Coulter Lyra to finally have found it For the first time someone seems to care for her and her wishes As she realizes her misjudgment one would expect her to give up in disappointment However Lyra keeps going and tries to find another way to accomplish her goal While she stays with the gyptians she finds out that Lord Asriel is her father At this point in her life she cannot imagine someone better to fill in this blank As she searches now for Lord Asriel she does not only hope to find her father the person but also the father figure she has created in her head During this search she finds something she would not have imagined love This love between Iorek and her however is not sexual nature but rather based on the feeling that Iorek will always be there for her and will accept her and her decisions anytime Without realizing it she practically already found what she was looking for As she finally finds Lord Asriel she expects to find the father figure she had imagined ever since she found out she was not an orphan However the father she finds is not what she expected He does not love her
