Each time she allowed the voices to rise inside her head, Lydia was transported back to her childhood. Always there, the whispers in the wind and the murmurings. There was no hiding from them. They were so loud during the hours of darkness. Being a young girl, she told her playmates, who told their parents who talked and eventually the entire village concluded she was cursed and stopped their children playing with her. Now left alone, she listened more to the voices, growing ever louder and louder.
At the age of eight, her family came to the Oakesgate for the Festival of Light. A popular celebration in the Talarian calendar where the streets are line with lanterns, street vendors pedal sweet and savoury treats and fireworks are set off to celebrate the Godess of light. Because of this, the city was packed tightly with revellers. Was it the claustrophobic feeling caused by the bodies around her or the choir of voices inside her head, so loud and so numerous, that caused her to break down in the street? Of this, Lydia did not know. All she remembers of that day was the fire that exploded in her brain. As uncontrollable tears poured from her eyes, an angel appeared, soothing her, quietening the voices and speaking to her, helping her.
That angel was Lilly, who used her magic to sooth the crying child, and when told the reason for the episode, the archmage believed that the young girl was one known as a caller and resolved herself to help.
Lydia was enrolled into the college of magic, and her family were moved to the capital by order of the King. With Lilly's help, and with guidance from Grand High Mage Toller, she learned to silence the voices inside her head and ultimately to command those around her. Lilly also discovered that Lydia had a particularly rare talent and was able to speak directly to the souls contained within Esper crystals and can call them into a physical form if needed.
Many callers can summon smaller creatures like wolves, goblins, drakes and sometimes even humanoids, ogres and trolls. But Lydia is exceptional. She has a true gift and can speak to the Therions, mighty creatures of legend whose souls are so powerful as to be responsible for maintaining the continent afloat. She has a particular fondness for the Mist Dragon and her friend Ifrit, with whom she spends most of her free time.
