Five World War Wikia



As a child Ilia hid her Faunus heritage as a way to blend and avoid discrimination. She used to enjoy blending in with Humans, even playing along with their anti-Faunus beliefs despite the hypocrisy. However this stopped after the massive death of Faunus which included her parents in a mining accident. On which her human friends still laughed at as such she attacked in anger. This event led down a dark path to joining the White Fang.

Her loathing of Humans is not merely because of those who mistreat or segregate Faunus; it is also against Humans or Faunus who stand by and do nothing to help or improve the Faunus' standing outside of Menagerie, herself included, being unable to forgive herself. She also reacted with rage when Blake tried to reach her out and to make her leave the White Fang, accusing her of being a traitor and showing bitterness about Blake not returning or even noticing Ilia's feelings for her and admitted her jealousy of Blake's feelings for Adam during her time in the White Fang.

However during the attack on Belladonna's residence, Blake got through to her as such turned on the White Fang and now seeks redemption for her pasts deeds. As such seeks to help create a better world for both Humans and Faunus. She know works as Ghira Belladonna's bodyguard. Another part of this is her romantic feelings for Blake who even though Blake does not feel the same way back, She stills wants to help protect her and help her allies in anyway.
