Meet the cast of Three Lilies and Their Ghost Stories!
Lily of the Countryside
In ‘90s China, rumors spread of an “inescapable” abandoned fisherman’s village. A young woman falls into thick fog while searching for it. When she comes to, she finds herself in the village…and she’s not alone.
Protagonist. An unremarkable student at her university and a popular regular at the bars she visits, her hidden passion is exploring abandoned places, a hobby she herself admits is a little reckless.
A strange girl Anna meets in the supposedly abandoned village. Though while at first she seems resourceful and kind, if a bit scatterbrained, it becomes increasingly evident to Anna that there’s something off about her.
A mysterious woman who Anna keeps dreaming of in the village. It seems she visited before Anna came along, but the rumor about the village mentioned a thief coming across it. What really happened on the island when she was there?
Lily of the Suburb
Halloween, 2010s USA. Two college students drive out to pick up the protagonist’s little sister and her friends from a party. While leaving, they get lost, and soon find themselves in an empty copy of the neighborhood…
Protagonist. An aspiring screenwriter. Quiet and very observant…maybe too observant, if her anxiety has anything to say about it. It is very difficult to coax her out of her shell, but when you manage to do it, the passion hiding underneath is revealed.
Aayla’s girlfriend, as well as her roommate and fellow student. While Aayla is the quiet one, Najwa is extroverted with gusto. She’s super into goth subculture and horror; a shared adoration for Halloween brought Aayla and Najwa together in the first place.
Aayla’s little sister, who has a knack for getting dragged into things due to her desire to impress others. She likes to experiment with fashion and tends to be good at any game she plays.
Really wants a cat, but the lease says no.
Lily of the City
In the 2030s, floating cities have been erected due to climate change. One such city suddenly experiences an unusual blackout. Two plant maintenance workers, one’s childhood friend, and the island’s director investigate…
Protagonist. A plant maintenance worker with plenty of grievances, though she hides them under a smile and softens her words when asked. Her bright nature always makes her a light in any room she enters, but her heart holds more weights than one may think.
One of Tara’s girlfriends who also works in the plant. Unlike Tara, she’s swift to deliver her complaints. Make no mistake, though: her passions are presented in the same manner, and while she hates other aspects of her job, she’s genuinely fond of hands-on work.
Tara’s other girlfriend and childhood friend who won the controversial “survivor lottery”. Her expression rarely betrays what she’s feeling. Kiran can be blunt and has a strange sense of humor; you may find she’s laughing on the inside at the oddest things.
