BIOGRAPHY (to be expanded)

Lydia Stevens is the oldest of the Stevens quadruplets by 5 minutes. When she, Karen and Andrew are summoned to the other world she’s the first of them to meet her heart friend and find her bracelet and weapon. For reasons as yet unrevealed she seem to have more knowledge of her pyrokinetic abilities than anyone, including herself, can account for.

As of the start of the story she and her siblings had not long finished their GCSE exams.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE

Lydia has red-blonde hair, pale skin and grey eyes. The combination of her mesomorphic body type and her hobbies have granted her an athletic build. She has a tendancy to forget to brush her hair uness Karen reminds her.

PERSONALITY & TRAITS

When Lydia has an opinion she doesn’t hesitate to speak it. Indeed she is so forthright that at times it borders on the tactless or preachy. She’s also stubborn as hell, though not quite as inflexible in the face of evidence as Andrew.

Her favourite subjects at school are science and geography.

For some reason she has an inordinate dislike of the word magic.

ABILITIES & SKILLS

Outdoor Survival, Fencing, Cooking, Pyrokinesis and Telepathy.

•Daniel: Brother. Second of the quadruplets. Not currently with his siblings.

•Bennu: Heart Friend.  A phoenix.

BEHIND THE SCENES

• Etymology : According to Baby Names World, Lydia is a Germanic name meaning ‘Noble kind; of the noble sort’, and is a form of the name Adelheid. Behind the Name, however, says it ‘Means “from Lydia” in Greek. Lydia was a region on the west coast of Asia Minor. In the New Testament this was the name of a woman converted to Christianity by Saint Paul.’
