Character description[]

"Lydia is Quinn’s first wife and is both his fiercest critic and most devoted follower. Without her astute counsel, he wouldn’t have ascended so far. While Lydia never doubted Quinn possessed the makings of a Baron, she is less sure about their son, Ryder. As much as she loves her only child and wants to see him succeed Quinn, she is well aware of his flaws. Ryder’s fortunes will undoubtedly have implications for Lydia, particularly given Quinn’s upcoming marriage to a beautiful young Cog, Jade. Lydia puts on an excellent show of indifference, while making it abundantly clear that she is still The Fort’s true Baroness and always will be."[1]


  • Lydia one of only two seen marital spouses to a Baron, with the other being Jade.
  • According to Gaius Chau in "Dragonfly’s Last Dance," Lydia's treachery as a Baroness was so well-known that even his mother feared her and his mother feared no one.
