Lila has short, brown hair, brown eyes and tan skin. She wears a yellow collared T-shirt with a blue logo.
Lila is a cheerful and bubbly person. She seems desperate to get on Everett Rourke's good side (likely for romantic reasons, job opportunities, or both). It is revealed despite her bubbly, innocent personality, she is really dangerous. She is highly skilled in martial arts, as seen when she brutally beat up a Watcher in the bonus scene of Book 1, Chapter 16. When she discovered that that Watcher knew nothing about Everett's location, she coldly murdered him by kicking him to his death. Despite these things, she appears to like every student.
Lila apparently likes every student, and (at least on the beginning of story) it's pretty clear that Your Character is on her very good side. In Chapter 14, it's implied that she possibly has a crush on Everett Rourke (because she gets jealous when Iris says that Rourke has a girl type). In Chapter 15, if your relationship with her is good enough, she will wait for Diego and Your Character before activate the electrocuting trap against the Watchers. In Book 2 Chapter 9, it is revealed that she is slightly depressed over the fact that the group has had several run-ins with danger and blames herself. Your Character can choose to cheer her up. As of Book 2 Chapter 10, they are aware of Lila's criminal past and learn the dark secret that she murdered Olivia Montoya. In Book 2 Chapter 11, you can chose to ask her if she would kill your group if Rourke ordered her to. She doesn't answer, but you correctly guess that she would kill you, much to your disgust.
IRIS bears a strong resemblance to Lila, and was likely modeled after her. When you ask Lila and Iris about it in Chapter 14, Lila seems to be jealous of her. They get along very well, as seen in Chapter 14, when you hear them speaking. They seem to share some secrets.
Everett Rourke is Lila's boss at Rourke International, and probably her love interest. In Book 2 Chapter 10 it is revealed that she murdered Dr. Olivia Montoya, Estela's mother, on Rourke's orders. She revealed to him that she lost her family when she was very young and was found by a Rourke International recruiter when she was 18.
- As of Book 2, several fans on social media believe that she might be a robot/artificial intelligence similar to IRIS. Examples being:
- Talking in the third person, as if she's malfunctioning.
- Acting in an almost robotic trance when taking orders from Rourke.
- Showing surprising displays of strength such as carrying Aleister (even though he is twice her size) and knocking out a Vaanti (even though they have Superhuman strength and durability).
- Lila was only 4 years old when her family was killed by a drunk driver who plowed into their minivan.
