Crytum Lydian is a secondary troll in Vast Error. His associated alchemic sigil is Electrum.

He was first revealed in the February 24th Trollodex reveal, alongside Rypite Koldan. His bullet points were:

  • a technological genius
  • body is now 70% soda, 0% sleep
  • just like one of his Repitonian animes!

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Crytum comes from a combination of the Latin words for gold and silver, chryseum and argentum. Lydian comes from the Lydians, the people of the Iron Age of Lydia, who were some of the first people to use gold and silver currency, tying back to Crytum's sigil, Electrum (an alloy of gold and silver).

Biography[edit | edit source]

Before Snowbound Blood[edit | edit source]

Prior to the events of Snowbound Blood, Crytum was in an abusive moiraillegiance with an unnamed troll. During a fight, his ex-moirail fell into the ocean and never resurfaced leaving Crytum unsure of his fate. After that event he began transitioning, gained an emotional support lusus and met The Boys. Aumtzi would later attempt to blackmail Crytum over his ex-moirail but was unsuccessful.

During Snowbound Blood[edit | edit source]

Crytum's skill with computers leads Secily to his apartment, beginning the events of his Snowbound Blood route. He tries to track Aumtzi's location by tracking his IP address, but only succeeds in doing so shortly before the start of Volume 11. During Necron and Secily's attempt to confront Aumtzi, he acts as their information handler under the codename 'Lettuce'.

During Vast Error[edit | edit source]

Crytum stays in contact with Necron and Oricka to keep track of the cultist's activities and the fallout of the Snowbound Blood case DCRC icon.png. When Necron discovers that the Harbingers of the Alpocalypse are planning an attack during Sestro's inauguration ceremony, he and The Boys race to Stronghold 21 to try and prevent the massacre. After the battle, they retreat to Eidolic Acres DCRC icon.png.

Personality and Traits[edit | edit source]

Crytum is a meek, polite troll with great interest in anime and videogames, particularly the show Revolutionary Girl Outena for inspiring him to fight back against his ex-moirail, and feels hurt when others look down on his interests. He is trying to move on from his abusive moiraillegiance, and when others ask if he is searching for another, he is annoyed at the assumption that he needs one. Crytum questions whether he's actually ever felt pale attraction towards anyone and expresses disinterest in finding another.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Glomer Hicner[edit | edit source]

The two are matespirits. When Crytum first moved to the Stronghold he found himself lost and attempted to fill the emptiness with work and hobbies and he credits Glomer for being able to anchor him. In addition, both had previously troubled moirallegiances.

Sabine Berare[edit | edit source]

Sabine is Crytum's upstairs neighbor, a goldblood that tends to make a lot of racket and bother Crytum.
