Lydia is the Magypsy of Snowcap Mountain. She often thinks that she is a horrible Magypsy because she worries too much and a Magypsy shouldn't interfere (or at least opinionate) about the seven needles. In addition, she was wrong in thinking that "The Time" would never come, contributing to her self-criticism.

Lydia's Needle[]

Lydia's needle is placed right behind her house. It's not heavily guarded or hidden very well, making it an easy needle to pull.


Lydia is a compassionate caretaker. No matter who is in trouble she still cares for them. For example, she reveals her needle to a pigmask, takes him in, and cares for him in his incapacitated state. Her nurturing also extends to non-humans, as she also cares for the white bunnies that live in Snowcap Mountain and builds the talking snowmen there.


Lydia is almost completely bald, with the exception of her beard and a ring of hair around the back of her head. She wears a yellow, puffy coat with a white trim. Like all Magypsies, she has pink hair and wears makeup.

Happy Ending[]

When she disappears, she holds out her hands as if hugging, and he says "Byebee!♥ Send hugs and kisses for the next Magypsy for meeee!♥".

Before she does leave, she says "Oh, and ask that man what he wants to do now." If you do, he says he will take care of the bunnies. And if you run, he tells you to stop, for the sake of accidentally stepping on a bunny.

After Lydia's needle is pulled, she advises Lucas and company to seek a white box to get back to Tazmily. This white box is actually a white refrigerator that falls off the mountain, but it does successfully transport the party to the Graveyard.
