N is for Necromancer


When I think of iconic villains, they are one of the first to come to mind. In some ways they are some of the most frightening villains. Demons and devils corrupt and torment because it's their nature. Dragons have an innate need to subjugate those around them and amass treasure. Necromancers however are mortals who willing traffic with the dead. The willingly expose themselves to rot, disease, and the antithesis of life itself. That's scary enough, but then you have to deal with their undead servants.

Grab you're holy symbol and prepare your blades and spells, because N is for Necromancer...

Lydia, the Slaymate

"Will you play with me?"

The horrifying undead abomination known as Lydia is the creation of the insane necromancer, Strixus the Purtrid. A child tortured and corrupted by the necromancers spells, she eternally roams as a macabre undead child. He small frame hides horrifying strength, which a deadly combination with her ghoul-like touch. She roams the country side looking for playmates. If suitable corpses can't be found, she will make new ones. Unfortunately, mindless undead bore her, so she is always searching for a new friends.

Lydia would be a pitiable creature, if not for her terrible temper and bloodlust. She envies and hates the child assassin, Valérie. The undead pair always clash when in the same area.
