The Golden Compass
Character Role Analysis
Lyra and Iorek's journeys are deeply intertwined – their fates are connected. Lyra helps restore Iorek to the throne in Svalbard, and Iorek accompanies Lyra to find her father's laboratory. Lyra often compares Iorek to Lord Asriel (see 13.93), and he becomes a kind of stand-in father figure for her.
