Lydia loves reading. Especially other people's fanfic of supernatural TV shows. This kind of thing has been her passion for a long time.

All in all, Lydia is pretty chill about her life. She isn't particularly bothered by her mutation, or by the fact that she can't turn it off. She doesn't get upset all that easily and she has the patience of a saint. Really good teacher material.

Lydia is a practicing Jew, and has come from an extended Jewish family. She goes to temple, celebrates the holidays, and is Kosher.

Lydia is a kind and gentle soul. She cares deeply about people, and about children. She wouldn't hesitate to stand up for somebody being pushed around or threatened.

Supernatural Wonk:
Lydia devours supernatural media like a fiend. She's watched *all* the shows, and has read all the popular books and then some. She's even delved into the real life supernatural and picked up some practical knowledge about ghosts.

Character Sheet

Ectoplasmic Constructs:
By coalescing and solidifying her ectoplasmic mist, she's able to create solid constructs. The smaller the construct the more detailed she's able to make it. Something about softball sized she can make very detailed, like a lifelike looking bird. Her limit though are things about two meters in diameter, where she can only make basic shapes. The constructs are about as sturdy as steel, and strong enough to lift a small car.

Ectoplasmic Enhancement:
By visualizing her ectoplasm as an exoskeleton or armor, she's able to enhance her natural abilities. She can create claws that could rend steel, wings that allow her to fly, and enhance her strength and (somewhat) her speed. Like with her constructs, her armor is about as strong as steel, allowing her to deflect small arms bullets, and lift a small car. And, like her constructs, the more she uses her abilities at the higher end of things the more tiring it is.

Ectoplasmic Generation:
Lydia's skin is constantly generating an ectoplasmic mist that is always surrounding her. Generally speaking it creates a field around two feet off her skin. The ectoplasm itself is pretty harmless, passing through thin materials such as clothes without leaving much of a mark. It's kind of tingly at the touch, like if you were to dip a finger in menthol. She's able to generate much more of the ectoplasm at whim, though, enough to fill a small room. However, she can't turn it down for longer than a couple of minutes before she tires out.

Because of her connection with Ectoplasm, she's able to detect when ghosts are in the same room as she is. She's currently unable to communicate with them unless they decide to manifest, but she can tell where they are.

Basic Self Defense:
When her mother finally realized that Lydia wasn't ever going to be cured of being a mutant, she insisted that she take some basic self defense courses. It's not much, but she knows how to throw a punch without hurting herself.

Lydia is fluent in Hebrew and Polish, due to her background.

Since Lydia has a minor in education, she has been licensed and is qualified to teach in New York. Her patience and kindness lends itself well to this profession so she would make an excellent teacher.

Lydia is an experience author. While she hasn't made it big publishing novels, she is on the path to being able to make a living out of it. She has an extensive fan fiction catalogue, though, going back from the cringeworthy 14 year old to more refined work from her college years.

Nice Apartment:
Lydia is currently living in a nice, one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. It's spacious enough and is fully furnished.

The Toaster:
This is what she calls her silver Vespa Primavera 150. It's perfect for getting around New York traffic, and is good enough to travel outside of New York for a little bit.

Trust Fund:
Since her parents are rather wealthy, they set up a trust fund for her to use for going to college and afterwards when she's looking for work. Between this and what little she gets from her book royalties, she has enough to live comfortably for about a year before it all runs out.

It's not really a weakness, but anything that prevents you from eating bacon belongs in this category.

Much like ghosts, salt is able to break up Lydia's ectoplasm. It's not painful or anything to her, but throwing a handful of salt will dissolve her ectoplasm like acid. She won't be able to recover what was dissolved until about fifteen minutes later when she's able to start slowly regenerating her ectoplasmic field again.

Lydia is something of a Jewish American Princess. All her life she's pretty much gotten all she ever wanted, and her parents have always had a hard time saying no to her. Likewise, Lydia has always had a hard time saying no to her parents. This means that she hasn't been too well prepared for real life which won't always go her way, so she gets easily frustrated when things go wrong.
