Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call Edit


The last summoner of Mist, the one place on Earth closest to the Eidolons. Despite her sorrowful past, she lives on in courage and fights alongside Cecil, the dark knight who brought about her mother's death...

Rydia returns as an unlockable character, and is now obtained by collecting Peach Crystal Shards. Despite still appearing as a child, Rydia's size has not been adjusted, and she stands at the same level as almost all other characters, unlike Shantotto.

Rydia remains a strong mage with a plethora of spells at her disposal, and although she loses several support skills, she also gains more magic to utilise and the ability to boost her Luck, making her useful for obtaining treasures on both field and battle.

World of Final Fantasy Edit


WoFF Rydia
Who's Who
CV: Caroline Macey / Noriko Shitaya
Age in Grymoire: 16
Familiar: Mist Dragon
Notes: Summoner / Researching the Crimson Prophecy / Looks up to Yuna as a role model
Bad Memories
Rydia has a paralyzing fear of fire, brought on by the trauma she experienced when a calamity befell her home village of Mist. She lost her family that day, and even now sees the inferno that consumed them in every spark or flicker of flame. And try as she might, she has yet to overcome her phobia.
Growing Up
The original Rydia from Final Fantasy IV underwent a rather unique aging process during her time in the Feymarch, but here in Grymoire she has grown up at the same pace as any other girl. As a result, she's a little bit more down-to-earth than you might remember.
Rydia's mother was also a summoner, which makes the two of them a rarity in Grymoire, where Lilikin do not generally pass on such powers to their children.
Fighting Fire
Since meeting Reynn and Lann, Rydia has made great progress in overcoming her fear of flames. She's still got a ways to go, but the healing has already begun.
