Psychology

Likes
Friends, dangerous things, learning new things, rough housing, getting the jump on others (known to ambush them for giggles), books on mythology, hiding behind Destan when she's gotten in trouble (since he's mature enough to get her out), getting Zayne to help her talk Destan into getting into trouble with them, secrets, adventures, pranks, getting her dad to smile, the rare times she can see her mother, Randall (the fun Uncle)
Dislikes
Melchior (she doesn't know a lot about him, but what she does know is he is why her mom can't be with her), getting into serious trouble, when her dad is upset with her (actually upset), when Zayne and Destan _actually_ fight, being excluded for being a girl, people who mock her for not being a noble (her dad makes good money and paid for her to go to school like everyone else!), ballroom dancing (boring)
Personality
Lydia is completely the opposite of her parents in that she is 100% personality. She's out going, cheerful, optimistic and fears almost nothing. If she puts her mind to something there is not stopping her - even if it would probably be better for her to leave the matter be. She's adventurous, loves taking risks and has almost no sense of personal space. She also has a bad habit of forgetting she's in skirts when she runs around playing just as rough as all the boys. She's a very loyal friend, once you've got her trust she will go through Hell for you without a second thought. She is also poor at holding a grudge, especially if someone she cares for starts to cry.
Fears
The only thing Lydia seems to fear is losing the people she loves in her life.
Quirks
Lydia has a strange power to go from trouble making hellion to sweet girl with the bink in about 3 seconds.

History

Year 1855: Lydia was born from the unexpected recognition of Celith (a wanted warlock) and Sheldon (a knight). Carrying her to term was a hardship for Celith, who was desperate to keep her child far from Melchior's grasp. As a result, she had to call in a favor from Balor to make her a cover story for the nine months.

Once the child was born, Celith left her in Sheldon's care but was granted secret visitations with the girl now and then. As a result, Lydia grew up aware of only two things about her mother: 1) Her mother was sad and needed to have a reason to smile. 2) Melchior was the reason she was sad.

Lydia could not stop Melchior but she could get her parents to smile. So she began to goof off and act up to make them chuckle - even at her expense. As a result, she grew into being quite the loud and audacious personality.

Year 1859: Lydia is sent to Legacy Institute thanks to her father's money. While not the only child of a knight who was not a noble, often her kind were looked down on as lessers by the other students. She never let it bother her, always eager to tell them off or prove them wrong. Her boisterous personality caught the attention of two boys her age: Zayne and Destan. Zayne was a distant cousin she'd only just become acquainted with but he loved trouble just about as much as her so they were fast friends. Destan seemed boring at first, but he quickly turned into their keeper and getting him into trouble along with them was rewarding - especially when his boring facade cracked and he started laughing it up with them.
