is a fictional character and one of the heroines of the dating sim/ strategy game series Galaxy Angel. She debuts in Galaxy Angel II: Zettai Ryouiki no Tobira (2006), the first of the sequels to the original Galaxy Angel game trilogy.
A serious and dedicated swordswoman, she pilots the Emblem Frame Eagle Gazer. She was originally captain of the Rune Angel Troupe, but as she was unavailable for most of the early stages in the game Kazuya Shiranami was appointed captain instead. She is essentially now second-in-command.
Prior to the release of the Galaxy Angel II game on 22 June 2006, Lily was among the new characters to be announced by Broccoli. Her voice was first heard on 2 CDs released shortly before the game's release date. The first contained her image songs and a short message from Lily herself. The second was a duet CD with her teacher Forte Stollen which featured two duets, two question and answer sessions and a mini-drama.
She is the last of the new Angel Troupe encountered in the game, and acts as second-in-command. Like Forte before her, she is often seen as the big sister of the group despite actually being the second oldest (Kahlua/Tequilla being slightly older).
A female captain being replaced by a male and becoming second-in-command is a fate Lily shares with Maria Tachibana from Sakura Wars. Unlike Maria, however, Lily took her replacement quite well.
Besides the game, she is also a major character of the ongoing Galaxy Angel II manga and in Galaxy Angelrune- Galaxy Angel II, an anime based on GAII.
Like many 'big sister' characters from other anime, Lily maintains a serious, business-like appearance. A trained swordswoman from the planet Celdar (which is also the capital planet of the dimension NEUE), she nearly always carries her sword with her, even on vacation.
She is very loyal, and a strong believer in protocol (as she addresses other characters by name and rank as much as possible, with the exception of Kazuya). She is also somewhat naive when it comes to certain aspects of social interaction due to her training. For example, she wears the skimpiest swimsuit of the Rune Angels (described by a horribly embarrassed Kazuya as little more than cloth and strings) because it offers her the most ease of movement. While this makes sense due to her knight's training, she seems oblivious of the effect the outfit has on Kazuya, who is driven to distraction by her shapely body.
She is perhaps most well-known for her habit of expressing approval with "OK da" and disapproval with "NG da" (NG presumably meaning "No Good"). She is somewhat less well-known for her tendency to burst into tears unexpectedly.
Oddly enough, despite being a swordswoman Lily's Eagle Gazer Emblem Frame is a sniping unit, more similar to Chitose Karasuma's Sharpshooter than a close-combat unit like Ranpha Franboise's Kungfu Fighter.
Serious and attentive, Lily is a strong young woman. She is a strong believer in teamwork and works hard to make sure the Rune Angel Troupe functions as a smooth unit. She occasionally expresses approval of group activities with, "That's good training." She also sometimes uses English words during conversation (e.g. when she was stuck in a costume, she cried out, "Mayday! Mayday! Emergency da!")
She appears to hold her commander Takuto Meyers in high regard, based on her willingness to accept his judgement in putting relative newcomer Kazuya Shiranami in command of the Rune Angel Troupe. Before she could fully accept him, however, Kazuya had to go through some of Tact's experiences with the previous Angel Troupe. These experiences were:
Needless to say, some of these programs went down somewhat poorly with poor Kazuya. For example, Lily simultaneously carried out the Milfie and Ranpha Programs by having Kazuya wear a pink sweater with her name and picture on it and wearing one herself (except with Kazuya's name and face in place of hers), while feeding him a huge cake she forced him to finish. Later, in one of the more humorous scenes in the game to carry out the Mint Program Lily visited Kazuya's room. When Kazuya opened the door, he was confronted with a giant cat and began screaming hysterically. It was only after Lily revealed herself within the costume that he calmed down.
Lily is also a perfectionist. If she fails at a task will keep trying at it until she succeeds. In the GAII game, upon trying to emulate Chitose Karasuma during her Chitose program she attempts to pour green tea for Kazuya. Chitose once did the same for Tact, and a tea stalk from the teapot stood at the center of the teacup (a suspicious sign and suggesting excellent pouring style). Unable to do the same, Lily forced Kazuya to drink cup until cup until she finally succeeded. By that point, however, Kazuya was in no shape to drink her perfectly poured tea.
Despite her generally serious attitude, Lily is a big softy especially during times of great emotion. She is prone to bursting into tears when overwhelmed, much to the shock of both Kazuya and Anise Azeat. It is also hinted she may begin crying when frustrated or extremely disappointed. This was seen when Kazuya refused to take further part in her programs, prompting her to tearfully explain that she'd worked very hard at coming up with them, only to fail at the very end. A guilty Kazuya agreed to continue with the programs.
In the manga, Lily originally acted coldly toward all those who came from EDEN due to EDEN giving Lost Technology to NEUE. Only after a duel with Forte did Lily begin to open to the Rune Angel Troupe. It is also after this duel that she began to hold great respect for Forte.
At a point of the game, while the Luxiole undergoes repairs and resupply the Rune Angel Troupe are given leave on the resort planet Hokkori. Takuto gives Kazuya a specialty pass that gives the bearer free run of the pace. The wily commander, knowing full well the power of an Angel in love, bades him to sort out his feelings for his teammates and decide who the one he loves is.
If the player spent time developing Lily and Kazuya's friendship, she will be one of the three Angel Troupe members to invite Kazuya to the resort planet.
When Kazuya arrives at Lily's room, she appears pleased, but her mood turns sour when she realises Kazuya hasn't prepared for the trip yet. She orders him to get ready and get in touch with her when he's done. Once she reenters her room, Kazuya cheers that he has a date with a beauty like her, but the noise prompts Lily to open the door and bark at him to hurry up, sending him scurrying.
During transport to the resort planet, Forte teases Kazuya about being able to take a vacation with a beautiful girl like Lily before dropping them off and heading on to Celdar for debriefing.
Kazuya is stunned when he catches sight of Lily in a swimsuit, but wryly notes she still carried around a sword. He is then shocked to realise just how skimpy her swimsuit is (her reasoning being that less material means less restriction and maximum mobility). This does little to help Kazuya, who is so distracted by the sight of Lily's scantily clad body from behind that he requests that he be allowed to walk ahead of her. A puzzled Lily agrees, but wonders what is wrong with him.
They encounter an ice cream vendor and, having never seen ice cream before as it is food from EDEN, decide to try some. Being natives of NEUE and unfamiliar with ice cream, they eat quickly when they realised the ice cream was melting. They then begin clutching their heads in pain as the inevitable brain freeze occurred. Not knowing what was happening, Lily wonders if they had been poisoned when the brain freeze wore off. Puzzled, both Kazuya and Lily agree ice cream is a terrifying food and resolve never to eat any unless they are together.
They next encounter a photographer, who offers to take a holograph snap (a holographic 3d photograph) of them. They agree, but Kazuya becomes increasingly more uncomfortable as Lily holds him closer and closer so that both of them will fit in the holograph. After the session is over and the photographer informs them the holograph will be sent to the Luxiole, Kazuya notes that the holograph would help remind them of a memorable time.
Following their encounter with the photographer, Kazuya and Lily next meet a watermelon vendor. Kazuya recalls hearing of a game in EDEN, where people would attempt to split a watermelon in two while blindfolded. Lily has also heard of the game and so they decide to purchase a watermelon to try it themselves. In lieu of a blindfold, they decide to use Lily's swordbelt and take turns attempting to slice the watermelon using Lily's sword. Kazuya tries first, but misses due to being distracted. Lily tries next, but Kazuya is again distracted by her physique and only snaps out of it when Lily asks what is wrong. Lily eventually slices the watermelon cleanly in two. Unfortunately, from force of habit she throws her scabbard away just before striking and the discarded scabbard knocks Kazuya out.
By the time Kazuya recovers, the sun is setting and the watermelon too warm to enjoy. Making the most of the situation, the pair take the watermelon back with them to refrigerate and enjoy later. They are then treated to the majestic sight of the Luxiole appearing over the horizon.
When they return to the ship, Apricot Sakuraba is helping with mail deliveries and hands them a package from the resort planet. Realising it contains the holograph snap, Kazuya accepts it. Lily asks if he really wants the holograph snap, which Kazuya interprets as a request to let her keep it instead. He tells her he doesn't really need it and she can keep it if she wants. While he is distracted by Rico accidentally tripping, Lily walks over to a garbage chute and dumps the package. In shock Kazuya asks what she threw down the chute and she informs him it was the holograph snap. Since he said he didn't need it and she had no use for it, she threw it away.
Later on, Tact notices Kazuya's reactions are rather sluggish and wonders if anything was wrong. As he arrives, Lily makes a suggestion to Kazuya to get the team together for a teamwork building exercise. Kazuya bitterly asks if their trip together to Hokkori was also a teamwork building exercise, which an oblivious Lily confirms. An angry Kazuya then leaves, yelling at Lily when she attempts to go after him. A confused and surprised Lily wonders what happened, as she thought she and Kazuya were getting along rather well. Asking Tact for advice, she is then told to consider things from Kazuya's point of view.
Lily then seeks Rico's advice, who tells her the same thing. Lily attempts to see things from the point of view of someone who hasn't always thought about training the way she has. She realises her constant reference to gatherings as teamwork exercises or training may have made it seem as though she only saw value in social activity as training, and inadvertently hurt Kazuya's feelings. Rico comments that that sort of thing would spoil an otherwise memorable time, prompting Lily to recall a similar thing Kazuya said back on Hokkori.
To her horror, Lily realises that when she threw away the package containing the holograph snap, she was essentially telling Kazuya their time together meant nothing to her. Even Rico, who had thus far been encouraging her teammate, wondered if it were even possible to recover the relationship from such a blow.
Steeling herself, Lily makes her way into the depths of the Luxiole and, with the help of the other Rune Angels (who are likewise disturbed by how depressed Kazuya was), finds the package.
