Lyra Silvertongue sneaked into the Retiring Room one evening and saw the Master of Jordan College poisoning a carafe of 1898 Tokay which was destined to Lord Asriel. She warned Asriel, who proceeded to knock over the decanter[1] and went on to give a presentation about Dust in which he managed to raise funding for his next expedition to the north.[2]
