Introduction of Assistant
Afterwards, Lyle became overwhelmed with treating the many wounded sailors of the Aquila following the Battle of the Chesapeake, to which he requested Connor to find someone with steady hands to assist him as a nurse and apprentice. Rushing to find someone, Connor located Diana, who he brought back to the medical station.
As Connor performed minor medical help nearby, such as realigning dislocated joints and treating cuts and burns, Lyle and Diana worked together on the more serious injuries. When all was done, Lyle was so impressed with Diana that he mentioned that she was more capable than any previous assistants he had worked with prior. He then took her on as his apprentice and nurse.
Following this, Lyle attended the wedding of Norris and Myriam, and celebrated afterwards in the Mile's End tavern as part of the reception. He also was present at Achilles Davenport's funeral, and laid a rose on his coffin.
