Lydia Devin, the Goddess


One day, a lackadasical lady in her twenties had a rather bad headache, and then things got weird. The journey involved a superhero career, a secret government agency, and the entire universe exploding and being put back together before Lydia could find out the truth about herself.

Since then, she's been exploring time, space, possibility and existence, seeing what's out there, getting her divine head together, and helping people along the way.

During the Spoon of Destiny Saga, she gave Doc Nostalgia a motivational dressing-down. During the RACCie Awards of 2016, she watched others raise the Doom Bear who had been an awardee. In Just Another Multi-Writer Cascade That Will Probably Never Have an Ending, she showed up to warn the LNH about the power of Kubrik's Kube (and to accidentally push Merissa away from gothdom). It turned out that she was the one who had sent LAN.os to the Friend Zone (because he wouldn't stop hitting on her), and she used her cosmic power to hold off the Crossover Queen long enough for the Legion, the LNH3k, and the Legion of Young.Heroes to defeat her.


Snarky but goodhearted. Easily frustrated. Has immense sympathy for the downtrodden, and is willing to kick your butt to motivate you.

Powers and Abilities

Nigh-infinite. However, they're based in Chaos, and as such, are unpredictable – no omniscience here; as well, Lydia hates running people's lives for them. Therefore, she tends more towards giving advice and alerting heroes about cosmic crises over direct involvement.


Usually manifests as a twentysomething human woman with pale skin and black hair, dressed in something comfortable.


In 2012, Lydia won RACCies:Favorite New Character and RACCies:Favorite Hero/Protagonist.
