Lilian 'Lily' Gray is a protagonist and one of the few leading females in the TV Show, Supernatural. Lilian or 'Lily' (as she is known), is a hybrid - being half-demon half-human . Lily has a split-personality, which shifts between the caring, compassionate, seemingly-ordinary 'human' personality that is known to everyone as Lily and the demonic, sadistic, bitter demon-being that identifies itself as 'Lilian'.
Lilian is revealed to be one of the daughters of Lucifer. Alike Lilith (who was the first), she was created so that he could show God how warped humans really were. Although Lilith was imprisoned in Hell, Lilian went from generation to generation using her descendants as vessels.
After hearing from Castiel about an 'Anti-Christ' and having met the child, Jesse, who was also a hybrid of the same nature, Dean and Sam Winchester decide to find Lily so that she is not used as a weapon by Lucifer. Lily is kept in 'Bobby's panic room' until Bobby's house is attacked by demons, looking for her. After this, Bobby suggests that they train Lily to be a hunter so that she can defend herself. Lily is found to be likeable, as she is quick-witted and compassionate and soon develops a friendship with Bobby and Dean. Sam however, refuses to trust Lily after being tricked by the demon, Ruby .
As the Seasons continue, although on numerous occasions Lily battles with Lilian, she becomes a dominant part of 'Team Free Will' and she and Dean start developing feels for one another.
In The BeginningEdit
- "He killed them. My entire family. Just to get back at me for running. Whatever you do to escape Lucifer, he will get his vengeance. Your friends, your family and anyone that you've ever loved."
- —Lilian talking about her original family to Sam Winchester
She and Epharim managed to survive living by thereselves for seven weeks with Lilian cooking the animals that Epharim had hunted alongside herbs she had gathered in the forest. However one night Lilian had a precognitive dream which featured her family burning alive. She awoke and told Epharim immediately, who agreed to check on their family to make sure they were safe.
Upon reaching the hill above their village, the pair looked down to find the entire village alight with flames, including the house they used to live. Rushing down to their house, they attempted to put out the fire but to no avail, the house was burnt to the ground, along with their family. Distraught, Lilian, was certain that it was the work of their evil 'grandfather' and so seeking vengeance for her dead family, confront him. Filled with anger, Lilian's eyes turned a bottom-less black which is alike the black modern-day demons have when possessing their vessels. Whilst attacking her 'granfather', she lost control of her powers and causes the accidental death of her last surving family member, Epharim, who dies in her arms. After Epharim dies, Lilian finds her 'granfather' to have vanished and be relplaced by a mob of villagers who arrest, and later burn, Lilian for witchcraft.
"Nothing satisfies me but my soul."Edit
Having previously given into darkness to try and attack Lucifer, Lilian is sent to Hell . Here, she is extensively tortured and her soul is ripped apart, and she becomes one of the first demons. Having lost all of her previous family, Lilian looked at her new demon 'brothers' and 'sisters', including Lilith and Azazel , to be her new family.
However when God found out about the creation of demons, he was disgusted and cast Lucifer from the Heavens. He locked the majority of the orginal demons, including Lilith in Hell but Azazel and Lilian managed to escape to Earth. Parting ways, as Arazel is on a mission to create 'special children' for Lucifer, and Lilian wanting to go into hiding, Lilian choses to possess her sister Feya's daughter, Elizabeth. Lilian then continues to use her female descendants as vessels from Elizabeth's daughter, Mary, and so on.
However God is aware of Lilian's escape and so fashions himself a child, a half-angel half-human hybrid by the name of Thiel . Various phrophecies have been written over time concerning Thiel and Lilian which boil down to the phrase used over and over again:
"Neither can live while the other survives."
On the 25th December 1992, Lily Jane Gray is born to Richard 'Ric' Gray and Jenna Sommers and is a descendant of Lilian Greywood from her father's side. She is completely identical to Lilian in appearance and is later revaled to be Lilian's doppleganger . She is raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and is the middle child of the family as she has three sisters - Phoebe and Candice who are older than her and Grace who is younger.
Personality-wise, Lily was a polite, gentle child and because of this, is adored by all around her. However, since Lily could remember, she had always encountered pregonitive dreams (alike Lilian) where she would have visions of things happening that would be proven true in the future. For example, Lily had a dream that the family dog 'Herbert' had died and two weeks later he was hit by a car.
At the age of seven however, Lily began to black out for large amounts of time and would not remember what had happened or how she had gotten where she was. Scared that their daughter had a brain tumour or memory malfunction, Richard and Jenna sought help from various doctors, as well as psychiatrists, but none could identify her condition. Aged twelve, things started to get progressively worse and Lily would blank out for hours, even days, on end and would sometimes wake to find her hands covered in blood or dead animals by her feet.
Grace, alike Lilian, was gifted with witchcraft - being the youngest in the family. Grace had the special gift of being able to identify a person's aura by touch. When Grace hugged Lily after Herbert's death, she wouldn't stop screaming and claimed that Lily was 'evil'. Everyone believed Grace to be mentally ill as Lily was kind and compassionate, not evil, and Grace was enrolled into psychotherapy.
When Lily was sixteen, she blanked out for no longer than a couple of hours but woke to find her house covered in smears of blood and and the furniture to be trashed. At first Lily believed it to be a buglary but when she went from room to room and identified the dead bodies, she realised her family had been murdered and callled the police.Lily was sent to stay with a foster family in Austin, Texas, whilst the police investigated the deaths of her family. After they found Lily's DNA on a blood-covered knife stashed in the airing cupboard, they identified Lily as being responsible for the murder and drove to Texas to arrest her.
However when they reached the house of Lily's foster parents, they found that house too to be covered in smears of blood and her foster parents with, what was later found by the medics to be, 666 knife wounds in each of them. Lily was found in her room, doing her homework, oblivious to what had gone on. Lily was then arrested, and upon finding her DNA on that knife too, was found guilty for seven murders and sent to a mental asylum.
Lily spends the next six years in the mental asylum, believing she has gone insane. She has no visitors and no contact from the outside world at all. She is believed to be twenty-four when the Winchester brothers find her, but no one is certain.
