Rydia of Mist
|Special Abilites||White Magic, Black Magic, Summon|
Rydia, sometimes referred to as Rydia of Mist, is a playable character in Final Fantasy IV. She is a Summoner from the village of Mist and is one of the most powerful Summoners in the village. This is due to the fact that she is only seven years old, as summoned monsters from the Land of Summons tend to trust innocent, young girls more than they do adults. Her main Eidolon is Whyt, who can be named, trained, and designed by the player.
Rydia was born to one of the few remaining pure-blood Summoner families in Mist. Her mother was known as the protector of Mist using the Mist Dragon to protect her village. Rydia joins the party when Cecil Harvey saves her from the desert after she opens the rift in the ground using Titan. After the death of Anna, Rydia is very comforting towards Edward, telling him that she has stopped crying, and so should he. The party then braves the Antlion’s den to save Rosa from desert fever.
On Mount Hobbs Rydia must face her fear of the Fire magic (From her home burning down) with encouragement from Rosa. Rydia is quick to rush to Yang’s aid during the fight with the Mom Bomb. After the assault on Fabul, during the journey back to Baron, Yang tries to return the favor. Leviathan attacks the boat, throwing Rydia into the air, where Leviathan quickly consumed her. Instead of killing her, Leviathan took her to the Feymarch: The land of Eidolons. Time moved faster in the Feymarch, causing Rydia to age into a woman in a short time (Chronologically she is still seven).
Upon traveling to the Underworld, Rydia quickly runs to everyone’s help while Golbez tried to kill them all. Sadly, because of her time in the Feymarch, she lost all ability to use White Magic.
