Dear WHI's,

Today I wanted to write another article about a character. Lydia Martin was suggested by @secretlyagranger, make sure to check out her account!

It has been a while since I've watched Teen Wolf but I loved it when I was watching and I think Lydia is a wonderful character.

PS. There can be spoilers in here!

Lydia is a banshee. Her paternal grandmother, Lorraine, was one too, but never knew. Therefore people thought she was insane. Lydia and Lorraine had a close relationship and Lorraine would call Lydia "Ariel" and would read 'the little mermaid' to her.

After Lorraine is committed to Eichen House, a hospital which turned into a mental health facility, Lydia's parents got divorced while Lydia was still hearing her grandmother.

Lydia goes to the Beacon Hills High School, where she is very populair. She doesn't show that she is very smart because she believes it will take away her popularity. She also has a relation with Jackson Whittemore, the local hunk. First she, and the audience, believe that she is only with him for the popularity, but later, when they break up, we learn that she really loved him.

But her "normal" life disappears when Peter Hale attacks her. She is controlled and possessed by him, all so he could come back from the death.

Jackson moves to London and leaves Lydia. This leaves her very emotional and therefore she returns to her superficial ways, and has different loves during the summer.

But she soon learns that her life won't go back to "normal". She is involved in multiple murders because she can sense then. She learns to master this with the help of Peter, her grandmother and Meredith Walker.

She fall in love again and gets heartbroken when her love, Aiden, dies.

Later she fall in love and forms maybe the best serie-couple ever: Stydia.

When we first meet Lydia she looks like a spoiled and kind of superficial person. But when we get more information about her, we learn that Lydia is extremely smart. Her best subjects are chemistry and Latin (classical as well as archaic). Lydia is a very sweet person and gives more about people than she would sometimes like to admit, especially in the first seasons.

Physical appearance

Lydia is played by the wonderful Holland Roden. She has gorgeous red/strawberry blond hair and green eyes. All and all, she is very pretty, as Stiles would say:

"you are beautiful when you cry."

She is 1, 60 meters and born in 1986, while the character Lydia is born in 1994.

It looks like Lydia almost always looks good. She dresses quit girly and you could suspect to see her in something cute, classic and floral (or some other kind of print).

If you would like to dress like Lydia, I would recommend the following:

- Wear a short skirt, or dress
- Pair this with a classic (printed) blouse, with maybe a collar
- Put on some heels or flats and you're good to go
