From the manual:
- "While the war between the White Mantle and the Shining Blade tears apart her Krytan homeland, Livia risks everything to keep her people safe. She joined the Shining Blade to protect them; she killed to defend them. Now freed from the control of the deadly Mursaat, Kryta struggles to survive, its leaders destroyed and its population beset by civil disorder.
- Tasked by her superiors with finding a way to end the civil war, Livia has traveled into the Depths. She seeks a weapon of power—anything that will keep Kryta safe. And she is willing to give her life for it... as well as the lives of those around her."
Missions and Quests
Quests Involved In
Livia starts with basic Necromancer armor, labeled as Shining Blade Armor but with its own unique appearance. The headpiece provides +1 in the attribute of the rune applied to it. Her armor rating ranges from 3 to 60, depending on her level, but is effectively 60 as you acquire her at level 20.
See the armor gallery for details on her armor art.

"The importance of this mission to the Shining Blade cannot be stressed enough. We must all make sacrifices."

"We meet again, under dire circumstances and against impossible odds. Just as I like it."
"Good to see you again, Livia. Always in the thick of things, aren't you?"
"You could say that, but in this case, it is my love of Kryta that brings me here and not my need to be "in the thick of things". Princess Salma has my undying devotion."
