Physical Description: Miss Lydia is a tall, slim blonde who works her height to her advantage. She frames those big coffee-brown eyes with dark chocolate-rimmed glasses and a pixie smile, sweet and a little mischievous. She keeps her hair up in a bun, but a front lock stays free on both sides of her face, and slight strays continuously escape the knot, sticking up in various directions.
Attire: As a high-ranking employee of the hotel, Miss Lydia is almost constantly in her professional uniform; a long dark skirt and white formal blouse under a rich maroon waistcoat. She carries in her breast pocket an old-fashioned gold pocket watch, and often has a black pen tucked behind her ear.
Personality: In a few words, Lydia is pleasant, but quirky. She has a sweet temperament with a wicked sense of humor, and though that sly, perky smile rarely leaves her face, behind it is a cunning intelligence and the sense to use it. It is not always clear as to the meaning of what she says, and no one can be certain they know all her secrets.
Abilities/Skills: Miss Lydia loves her job, and like the rest of the hotel, she keeps a few tricks up her sleeve. She is something of a magician, though to what extent and of what kind has yet to be revealed. She also keeps an affectionate Siamese cat named Darcy who likes to hang around her shoulder and desk, or stuff himself into one of the vacant guest mail boxes.
Goal: Miss Lydia has decided to host a tournament at Myntion Manor for the simple purpose of drawing a crowd during the traditionally slow summer months, when potential guests often choose a beach or foreign vacation. There does not seem to be an ulterior motive on her part, but the truth of the statement can only be determined by Miss Lydia herself.
Extra: She keeps a full staff at the hotel, including a first-class chef and his assistant, their kitchen crew, a few maids, and several bus boys. She’d have a groundskeeper, too, if the hotel ever needed one. Only the kitchen crew decided to get out of the tournament’s way, so Lydia found temporary, oddly quiet but capable replacements.
