Lynette Bishop, known as Lynne, is one of the main characters of the Strike Witches anime and light novels.
Lynne is a very personable if a bit shaky, sniper from Britannia. Lynette is the middle child of eight siblings and was sometimes overlooked. Because of this, she's domestic and painfully shy. She joined the Strike Witches shortly before Yoshika to help protect her homeland. Lynette is assigned to be Yoshika's roommate, where the two quickly become friends. Her striker unit is based on the Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IX and she lugs around a Boys Anti-Tank Rifle in battle. Her sister is named Wilma Bishop.
In the AWA fics, Lynne is a student at the AWA Academy.
In the XP4 fics, Lynette is part of the Heroes Coalitions as a Solo Hero. She is also a student at the Vanguard Academy.
Lynne is a young girl with a big bust. She has a long, light-brown hair tied in a single braid by a black ribbon, and has light-blue eyes. She wears a black uniform jacket over a light-brown sweater vest, white dress shirt and green necktie, green & red thigh-high socks and black boots.
The middle child of eight siblings, Lynette was sometimes overlooked and developed very domestic and practical habits from helping to take care of them. Because of this, she's very domestic and painfully shy. Plagued by occasional clumsiness and sometimes overlooked, she nevertheless strives to do her best. She's a kind, gentle and obedient girl who still seems a bit helpless at times and finds no joy in fighting, but she joined up recently to protect her homeland when she wanted to be of use to everyone. However, she's strong-willed, obstinate and very reliable.
Apologizing seems to be her first knee-jerk reflex. Also, every time the squadron chips in to help prepare for a difficult mission, her suggestion is tea. She's very good at brewing tea, so she's in charge of tea time. She is also good in cooking, especially candies and sweets.
After she meets Sergeant Miyafuji, the two eventually become best friends. Also, during the Gallia reconstruction, Lynne becomes friends with Flying Officer Clostermann. Her dream had been become a good wife, but her dream change.
Lynette serves as the squadron's sharpshooter and possesses the ability to control the flight of projectiles to a limited extent. It would also appear she can charge magical energy into the shots to increase their effectiveness. These powers Ballistic Stabilization and Grant Magic Power allow her to affect bullets and other objects thrown in flight. Classified in the Telekinesis lineage.
For some veterans's words, 'she has the makings to become a good Commander, with her ability to keep an eye on the whole situation from the rear, and has a good sense of grasping the whole picture'.
Lynette principally uses a Boys Anti-Armor Rifle Mk.I in combat, but switched the muzzle brake to one from a Mk.II, since it's easier to use.
- Her pilot archetype is unclear, but is likely one of the children of famed Canadian WWI pilot Billy Bishop, who is the pilot archetype for Minnie Bishop, Lynette's mother. Lynette also has an older sister, Wilma, who is also a Strike Witch, and likely based on Billy Bishop's son, Arthur.However,her striker unit code based from 610th RAF member,Ellis,John [Ranked as Flight Leutnant],which has DW-N code on his Spitfire mk1a during Battle of Britain.
- In the AWA fics, Lynette is roommates with Yoshika Miyafuji and Chelsea.
