About PRAE

Our Mission

The Public Registry of Anomalous Entities (PRAE) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to researching and demythologizing the supernatural. We document anomalous entities and provide useful tips and tricks to survive a world fraught with these beings.

We DO NOT imprison, subdue, or otherwise contain any entities. It is our belief that to do so could potentially create an unpredictable or dangerous situation. We merely provide the knowledge and tools necessary to keep you safe in supernatural situations.

Our Founder

PRAE was founded by Leopold Lyre, the famed revivalist theologian who also founded the Dominionist Denomination of YHWH (DDY). Lyre was burdened all his life by both his great stature and purpose. He founded PRAE with the idea that the individual, if equipped with the proper tools and information, could coexist peacefully with the supernatural elements of the world.

After three decades of service as our Board Chairman, Leopold Lyre passed on peacefully at the age of ninety-eight. He was survived by nine of his twenty-seven children, over two-hundred grandchildren, and close to a thousand great-grandchildren. The Lyre Family has since then continued to grow and remain an integral part of the Registry. Many serve on our Board or as researchers both infield and off.

Our Board

Board Chairman – Leopold Lyre III

Leopold Lyre III was recently voted in as the Board Chairman after the tragic passing of his father and the previous Chairman, Leopold Lyre II. We eagerly look forward to what his vision brings for the Registry.

Head of Research – Andrew Lyre

Andrew Lyre has over two decades of anomalous research experience and a firm resolve to produce results useful to the public. He makes frequent tours of our many research sites and enjoys meeting the public that we help inform.

Head of Security – Julius Lyre

Julius Lyre is largely responsible for the safety of our sites and ensuring the proper management of potentially sensitive information (such as the names of those who wish to remain anonymous).

Head of Public Relations – Samuel Miller

Samuel Miller has an extensive background in public relations. He served as a public relations manager for Lyre Security Contractors for fifteen years before joining us.

Treasurer – Dexter Lyre

Dexter Lyre has always had a keen eye for numbers. He is unparalleled with budgeting our various departments and other pursuits.

Our Researchers

The Public Registry of Anomalous Entities (PRAE) is proud of our various research departments, all under the watchful eye of our Head of Research Andrew Lyre. Our research is divided as such:

Discovery Department

This department is responsible for researching rumors, sightings, and patterns to discover new anomalous occurrences. They are headed by John Lyre.

Field Department

This department goes out to various anomalous sites to do up close research. They collect samples, interview pertinent persons, and in rare cases temporarily acquire the anomalous entity for more detailed analysis. [Note: All acquired entities are returned to their environment of origin] They are headed by Julia Lyre.

Lab Department

This department uses high precision tools in a controlled setting to collect more accurate data on anomalous entities; be it through samples, simulations, or direct analysis the entity itself. They are headed by Dr. Vincent Andrews.

Revaluation Department

This department checks the cumulative work of the other departments and uses the information to compile the entries for the Registry. They headed by Carl Lyre.

Our Partners

Lyre Security Contractors

When an anomalous entity is too dangerous for just our in-organization Security Department to protect our researchers, we contract out the services of Lyre Security Contractors to augment our security measures.

The Dominionist Seminary

All our researchers learn and develop their techniques for handling anomalous entities at the The Dominionist Seminary. As such, our researchers are the best in the field. We are confident in the Seminary’s pursuit of accreditation of its programs and stand by them, in spite of their setbacks and bad press.
