Let's show this green maniac how to save a planet!
Lilac, riding the Holodragon into Battle Glacier


Sash Lilac, who is more commonly known as Lilac, is a Half-Water Dragon[2] of unknown origins, believed to be the last in existence. At a young age, she was trained by the Red Scarves, a underground guild of thieves and assassins.[3] This is where she met Carol, who she became best friends with after having a brief rivalry with her.[4] With Spade, another member of the Red Scarves, they participated in martial arts tournaments to earn the prize money. However, in order to find her place in life, Lilac, along with Carol, left the Scarves to live independently[3]. Since then, they've been living in a treehouse hidden deep in the forests of Dragon Valley, stealing from the rich, since her past affiliations made it difficult to find any other means of survival.

Appearance

Lilac is a purple colored, teenage mixed breed water dragon of slightly over average height with purple colored twin ponytails. She at first wears a blue outfit with a dark blue waist belt, blue gloves with a yellow thong, and blue shoes with bolts of lightning on it.

Personality

Lilac is a good-spirited dragon and is more than willing to help those in trouble or in need.[5] She is very motivated and refuses to give up under any circumstances, even when the rest of the team doubts the success of their mission.[6] Lilac can get very angry, but only when pushed to the extreme.

History

Freedom Planet

One day, on one of their planned raids, a mysterious spaceship attacked by some of Shuigang's choppers, crashes into the Valley. Lilac's heroism gets the best of her, so she decides to investigate the crash site.[5] Upon arriving, she meets and saves Torque from one of Serpentine's rockets. Torque, disguised as a "Shellduck", informs the two girls about Zao's intentions of stealing the Kingdom Stone and both are making their way to the ancient temple.[7] After witnessing the theft of the relic by their old friend, Spade[8], the cave inside the temple collapses and the girls escape, seperated from each other.

They unite again and Carol notices that someone's following them. It is revealed that Milla, an orphan Hound living alone the woods, pulled Carol out of the cave. It doesn't take long for Lilac to befriend her and invite her to live with them in their Treehouse. Later that night, Torque reveals himself as a Chaser and tells the girls about Lord Brevon and his plans to ignite a civil war between the Three Kingdoms to steal the Kingdom Stone to repair his warship, the Dreadnought, so that he and his army can leave Avalice and continue his galactic conquest. Learning of this, Lilac, Carol and Milla volunteers in helping Torque stop Brevon and his army and to save Avalice from the brink of civil war.

Powers & Abilities

Lilac was trained in martial arts by the Red Scarves and is very athletic. At some point, she developed her own fighting style of using her twin ponytails to whip and cut through opponents and obstacles, also often attacking with kicks, but she lacks an attack with a bigger range.

  • Dragon Boost: Lilac's signature move. She charges all her energy and launches herself like a comet, clashing into enemies or to run at high-speed.
  • Boost Breaker: In the middle of using the Dragon Boost, Lilac can cancel it and create an aerial shockwave, damaging any enemy within range.
  • Dragon Cyclone: Lilac spins herself horizontally to hit enemies with her hair and to stay a bit longer mir-air. Also, she'll sometimes says "Cyclone", when using this move.
  • Dive Kick: From mid-air, Lilac kicks multiple times diagonally downwards towards an enemy.
  • Rising Slash: Lilac can use her hair to perform an uppercut.

Relationships

Carol: Lilac once playfully described Carol as "like her tail always right behind her".[7] Although they started out as rivals when they first joined the Red Scarves, the two became the best of friends and usually get along famously. [4] However, Carol has been shown to be more reluctant to go along with Lilac's heroics, often calling her "Little Miss Heropants".[5] During the course of their adventure, this contradiction creates tension[6], but they eventually make up when they need to. When Carol saw Lilac severely injured from Brevon's shock torture, she broke down in tears and blamed herself for running off on her own.[9]

Milla: At first, Lilac was a bit weirded out by Milla's mannerisms, like when she asked if she could touch her hair, but she quickly accepted the young hound as a friend. Lilac eventually becomes a big-sister figure to her, also acting as a protector, like when she told her to stay with Carol while she went off to rescue Torque alone.[6] What's more, when Lord Brevon brainwashed and mutated Milla, Lilac went berserk.[10] As she delivered the final blow to the defeated Warlord, she shouts out "Nobody....Hurts....Milla!!!"[11], this shows how much Lilac cares about her young friend and how personal she took it. When everything was said and done, Lilac tried to comfort Milla in her distress.[12]

Torque: After Torque's ship crash landed, Lilac found and saved him from Serpentine.[7] Later, he tells them that Mayor Zao is about to steal the Kingdom Stone and they make their way to the Ancient Temple[7], just to realize he was right. They agree to help him out after he told him who Brevon was and why he wants the Kingdom Stone.[13] Lilac went to various measures to protect and rescue Torque on multiple occasions. She claimed responsibility for manipulating Torque, painting him as a victim, just to convince the Magister to release him from quarantine[14] and when Brevon abducted him, she rushed off to rescue him on her own, due to doubts from Carol.[6]

Spade: Years ago, Lilac used to be part of the Red Scarves alongside Spade. She feels guilty for something she did to him when she and Carol left the Scarves, stating she was scared and didn't know what she was doing.[15] Any other part of Lilac's history with Spade is currently unknown.

Other Appearances

Runbow

Trivia

  • Lilac's first name, Sash, is a variant of the Russian name Sasha and means "Defender of the people" or "Protector of men".
  • The Lilac is a purple flower that is often a symbol for love.
  • Ziyo Ling's version of Lilac likes ghost movies and hip hop, but hates onions. [16]
  • Lilac's earpieces are hearing aids. She has fish fins underneath them (like seen on Merga), but a genetic defect renders them useless and she's extremely hard-of-hearing, if not deaf without her earpieces. [2]
  • During early development of Freedom Planet, Lilac was a hedgehog, much like the game's original inspiration: Sonic the Hedgehog. She was eventually changed to a dragon after people complained about her looking too similar to Sonic.
  • Also, it was planned that Lilac was supposed to have a living father. He was supposed to be an NPC and he looked similar to Lilac in design. His existence was eventually scrapped with the hub worlds all together and with Freedom Planet 2 rewriting Lilac to be the "only water dragon in existence" besides Merga it's clear he never existed in the new canon. Strife also confirmed the character to be considered non-canon. [17]
  • In Time attack, when idling, Lilac will say three lines referring to player's idling:
    • "Hey C'mon".
    • "What's wrong"?
    • "Do you want to get a bad time"?
  • Freedom Planet 2 continues to have idle quotes:
    • "Whenever you're ready".
    • "Hey C'mon".
  • In Freedom Planet 2, Lilac idolizes when being revived:
    • "You won't win that easy!"
