A bizarre issue involving a possessed Lydia was discovered by a gamer of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In part, because she’s the first follower that many players encounter in-game, Housecarl Lydia is one of Skyrim’s most memorable companions. These NPC buddies are usually discovered by the player while exploring the game’s vast open environment.
Once they’ve been summoned, they prove to be rather handy, able to carry more supplies, fight on the Dragonborn’s behalf, and perform a plethora of other functions. With a variety of abilities, each follower in Skyrim has a distinct speciality that ranges from espionage to magic to fighting prowess. One-handed swords are a speciality for some of the Housecarls, including Lydia.
For now, Mercenaries expect to be paid in gold, as is only proper for a service like theirs. Many of the Dragonborn’s followers are capable of marrying the player character, which may be a very profitable option in the long term. Reddit user Cator3 has unearthed an interesting fact about Skyrim’s follower characters (via GameRant). It was recently discovered that Lydia was in an extremely hazardous posture, with her head tilted forward and her legs thrashing back and forth in the air. An exorcism is clearly needed since she appears possessed.
There’s no escaping the suggestive nature of some of Lydia’s gesticulations, as noted by Reddit users in the thread’s comments. The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Anniversary Edition, a release aimed to commemorate Skyrim’s ten-year anniversary, reintroduced Lydia and her fellow followers to the discourse. Fishing mechanisms, Survival Mode, aesthetic improvements, and hundreds of more Creation Club items were all part of the re-imagined experience.
In November 2011, the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released, setting the stage for a slew of open-world RPGs to come. Although it was developed by CD Projekt Red, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild were 2 of the most influential open-world games of the last decade. The next Elder Scrolls game won’t be out for a while, since the company is focusing on its next sci-fi RPG, Starfield, which will be released later this year.
