"Victory is MINE Baldy!
And if you had any hair I'd take that too!"
And if you had any hair I'd take that too!"
Hair: Lilith often wears her hair loose, it is wavy with curls, which are more obvious when it is cut short. However she prefers to have it long and left natural. She'll brush it in the morning and after a busy day and wash it every two to three weeks. Other than that it is ginger.
Eyes: Green blue, although on cloudy days they can take on a shade of grey. Often the exact colour depends on the day and what she is wearing. Other than that, her eyes do appear to be perfectly normal.
Distinguishing Marks: Lilith has a scar on her left little finger from where she had fallen off a bicycle, although it has been useful for her to figure out which is her left hand (when she was younger). She also has a fading scar on her right arm. It has almost disappeared but was once more prominent.
Appearance: Lilith isn't your normal girl, she often dresses in waistcoats and guy clothes, unless she's trying to save the world, performing or worshiping the old gods. Lilith has the body of a dancer, thin and not much in the female department However she has strong arms and legs from her work. There is nothing to amazing in her appearance, nothing that would even turn heads, which is just fine for Lilith. Often she prefers to wear whites and browns on casual days, although when she's dressing up, any colours are fine with her.

I don’t even like the ones I have”
I don’t even like the ones I have”
- Dancing and singing
- Helping (although this can be argued to not really be helping as others as it keeps her from being bored)
- Everyone being cheerful (including herself)
- Star Trek The Original Series
- War of the Worlds (the musical version)
- Being Bored
- People being unhappy (it gets on her nerves and makes her bored)
- When things go wrong (Then there is generally less cheerfulness)
- People finding bad food good, especially if they later complain about it when they get a stomach ache from it.
Personality: Lilith is a cheerful, optimistic teenager. Despite her grades at University (which aren't too good), she tries to become an astrophysicist and to keep up with her social life. However she is not very good with getting on with others as her cheerfulness can appear to be fake. This is because in Primary school she was unable to make any friends for a year and missed out on learning how to make friends. She also went through a time when she rejected emotions because she decided that she should become a Vulcan (after watching too much Star Trek). The emotionless period lasted for one and a half years during Secondary School and meant that in an effort to catch up with emotions she took everything she could from books and movies.
Despite her difficulty to fit in, Lilith is hopeful that one day she may be able to figure out a way and has moved onto more sources to try and get her an idea of how to interact with others. She has even tried by praying to the old gods (Lilith is a Pagan), although she doesn't know what help they can offer. Being optimistic and cheerful all the time used to be draining, though and sometimes Lilith got emotionally exhausted and returned back to emotionless. However, since moving to America and taking on the power ring, Lilith has been able to remain cheerful, keeping her emotions even. Lilith assumes that it is because she has found a balance and understands things better, although her cheerfulness still worries some people, especially if they know what happened to her father (see history).

History: Lilith is from Scotland, although she has some Irish blood within the mixture. Recently her family has moved to America because of her Dad's job, which suits Lilith perfectly as there is generally more crime within America to deal with.
But to start at the beginning. There was nothing amazing about Lilith during Pre-school, or most of Primary school. However when she moved schools (and to England). Her new school had many cliches and this lead to her struggling to get into any social groups. Instead Lilith played by herself, often pretending to patrol the borders of the playground, protecting them from any enemies. But Lilith continued to hope to get on with people and eventually she made friends with some of the guys who welcomed her into their games. But this left her slightly segregated from the rest of the humans (especially girls), she didn't exactly understand things and acted slightly more guy like, despite the fact that she took plenty of dance lessons and singing lessons.
Then when it came to Secondary School, Lilith moved to one which was small and none of her sort of friends were going to. She hoped to be able to make a clean start. However, at this point she was unaware that she had missed learning some social skills and the fresh start was not as useful as she had hoped. Still, Lilith did manage to socialise with more boys and actually managed to build up a friendship after about a year. Then, she watched Star Trek and took Mr Spock to be a role model. This lead her to become emotionless for one and a half years. Most of her friends grew worried about her at this point, although Lilith was un-aware of evnything being wrong. It wasn't until a friend pointed out her fears (one of Lilith's few female friends) did the girl realise the problems and began to read and watch as many things as possible to understand how to fit in. During this period she also developed an interest in super heroes (from watching movies about them and the news), so she started taking some starter lessons in fencing and tae-kwondo. She wondered if she could be someone like Batman, as she had no powers.
During Secondary School, Lilith lost her Grandmother and cat, she also gained a scar on her right arm. This was from a contest one of her friends wanted. He asked to see who had the sharpest nails and Lilith was against the idea, but had given in. Her friend had scratched her arm and it had bleed. Lilith was unable to try and see how sharp her nails where, she didn't want to hurt her friend. But the scar remained there on her, despite the years that pass, although it began to fade once she reached college. Another fact that may be mentioned about her time at Secondary School was was that she fell in love with a boy, but she never told him and after this she became asexual, refusing to let herself like any other guy.
After Secondary School, Lilith started College. She had found GCSE easy, but A Levels were a struggle for her, it left her with a crumbling social life and grades as well as a struggle for having fun. But Lilith knew that she would be able to manage to balance things and while she has managed to work on the social and fun aspect, she is still hoping to get her grades up to A* level. It was then that the family moved to America and everything was up-rooted for Lilith, everything she had worked on. But Lilith decided that she could work from scratch again and she already had an idea for half the things. So eternally cheerful and hopeful, Lilith went off to the American equivalent of College.
When she left and went to university (just managing the grades), Lilith had to face a larger problem than she imagined. Her mother had been caught in some sort of attack from a Super Villain. It hadn't been aimed at Lilith's mother, but she still ended up in hospital. As an only sibling, she denied university to help look after her father who was devastated by the events that had happened. For once, Lilith did not let her cheerfulness disappear and she cleaned the house (without argument), cooking meals and checking on her mother every day. It was straining, especially as Lilith had to take up two jobs to keep a good income. Her father had stopped work and they were threatening to fire him.
In a sad twist of events, her father gave in to despair and hung himself while Lilith was out working. It had been herself who had found the body, which was already cold and stiff. Weeks later her mother's health began to improve and Lilith has always wondered whether her father had given his life so that her mother may live (based on the idea of a life for a life). Sometimes Lilith wonders whether it should have been her, but she prefers not to dwell on the past. When her mother was released from hospital, Lilith looked after her Mum, who wanted Lilith to try and get back into University. But Lilith discovered she could not let her mother stay by herself. Coming back from work one day she found her mother trying to go the same way as her father.
From that point on, Lilith tried to do the minimum hours to support her Mum and herself. She tried to talk to her Mum and help her realise that everything was going to be fine. Lilith promised that things would be fine. Eventually she managed to calm her mother down and no longer need to spend as little time as possible away. With her mother's condition improving rapidly, Lilith again applied for University and was accepted. It was during this point that she was approached by a Blue Lantern. Lilith was approached because she showed great hope. When her mother was ill she continued to hope that things would be fine and when her father died, she hoped that her mother would be able to cope. And still she hoped that she would be able to become an astrophyscist. In fact, she was approached when working on her working on her thesis. The girl had been shocked at first, but then became really hopeful that she might be able to get some help for her work. After some talking (Lilith was fascinated by how she actually had a converstaion). Then she went through 3 days on a place that wasn't earth (Which was the thing that she registered most, although she also remembers it is called Odym) although she paid attention to the talking. It was about hope, something that Lilith did not often consider but often had. She was told of the responsibility (taking this part seriously) and was deemed worthy. So Lilith was accepted into the Blue Lantern Corps.
Then Lilith went back to earth and thought over everything again. It had been very interesting. So Lilith had started attempting to help hope within the people she knew and then spreading it out. Often, Lilith found it good to help people who had just gone through bad situations and she tried to help prevent crimes, although she was not very good at that. Often she just tried to make sure the situations didn't happen. As a result, she isn't really known at all, but Lilith is fine with that. She volunteers at several charity shops and gets her income from working in a local Fair Trade shop.
"Next time guys, we should just
rebuild this place outta Lego."

Lilith smiled as she looked at the homework. Finally something that she could do! It was always a delight when it was easier. The girl leaned back on the chair, holding a pen in one hand as she thought about how to respond to the question. The important thing was to get all the marks, to make enough points. The gods knew that she struggled with that. Still, it was a subject she understood so hopefully she could make one or two points more. Grinning, she began to write, turning on some fast Irish music on the computer. The pen flickered across the paper in her usual messy scrawl. People always told her that it she should try to make it neater, Lilith hoped that it would get better, preferable with age and not too much effort on her account.
Five points made and she frowned. Boredom was beginning to settle in. Why did this always happen? Getting up, Lilith walked to the window and stared out, wondering what was happening in England. Probably nothing too much fun. There was a lot more crime around this area, although Lilith often had to expand out, calling herself Liath, as she tried to stop crime. "I'll do it later." Lilith decided as she stared back at the homework, before turning the computer off. Then, dressed in a casual waistcoat the ginger haired woman walked out of her student accommodation and started to check up on everything, talking to people. Although they often found this strange, her cheerfulness and willing to help anyone who seemed to be a little depressed.
