Expressing 'happen to' dativus?

2. Quomodo Medus praedonibus resistere potest?

b. Medus gladium educit et dicit ut donec vivat nulla mala res Lydiae factus erit.

Not sure how to say 'happen to' as in 'nothing bad will happen to Lydia'...?

ut nil malè / nullum malum ei faciatur / accidat / obtingat / eveniat

Quaestioni rogatae, id mihi videtur, bonum responsum non est. Liber autem non prae manibus.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
