"Let me be a fever from which you never recover, and our nights an anarchy of pleasure."

Lyndisty, to her fiance, Vir

Lyndisty Drusella was a Centauri female of a noble House who was briefly engaged to Vir Cotto in 2260.[1]


Lyndisty was born into a noble House of the Centauri Republic. Well educated and trained in self-defense, she was brought up to be a traditional Centauri woman. She was also brought up to regard the Narn as nothing more than animals, personally responsible for all the troubles of the universe.

Her father was a military officer assigned to Narn during the Second Centauri Occupation of Narn. One of his duties was "culling the herds," a eugenics program intended to weed out aggression by killing the local population. Lyndisty stayed with for a time and personally put to death hundreds of Narns. Two Narns managed to escape, taking the Narn blood oath to avenge their fallen family and neighbors.

In 2260, Lyndisty's family arranged for her to marry Vir Cotto, at the time the Centauri envoy on Minbar. The engagement was handled by her mother and his uncle. Lyndisty committed herself completely to the place of a good Centauri wife for Vir, going so far as to tell him she believed he could do no wrong. They met for the first time when she came aboard Babylon 5. Vir was overwhelmed by Lyndisty's affection and devotion to him, though being a "radical" he told her he was uneasy about marrying someone he had never met before (or heard of). Lyndisty promised he would love her if he gave her the chance. As Lyndisty herself put it, their nights together "would be a fever from which Vir would never recover."

While on the station, one of the two Narns caught up to Lyndisty and attacked while she was with Vir. They both assumed the attack had been directed at Vir himself, until the other Narn strikes at Lyndisty in her quarters and she is able to subdue him. She offers him to her future husband for him to kill, but Vir refuses. At the same time, Vir's role in illegally smuggling Narn civilians off their homeworld is discovered by Londo Mollari. Not wishing to impact his own position, Londo does not reveal the entire story, but does arrange for Vir to be recalled from Minbar. With Vir's position now not as prominent because of some "terrible misunderstanding," Lyndisty's family decides to delay the marriage indefinitely. Lyndisty leaves the station, hopeful that one day she and Vir will be together.


  • Lyndisty's sole appearance was in "Sic Transit Vir."
  • Lyndisty's last name was not specifically said, but she did refer to her mother as "the Lady Drusella."
