Gillian (ジリアン, Jirian?) is a former orphan from the Grand Valley orphanage who was a member of the Goldy Pond Resistance who was in charge of the provisions in Goldy Pond.

Appearance

Gillian has shoulder-length blonde hair and green eyes. She wears a knit cap covered in pins. She has more handmade pins on her coat.

Personality

Gillian is a high-spirited and outgoing teenage girl, which thus made her stood out from the rest of the members of the Goldy Pond Resistance, whom are mostly serious in nature. This was evident when she and Sandy are the liveliest among the team members when Violet introduced them to Emma.[1]

The vengeful seven

Gillian was equally as vengeful as the other six towards the demons who killed their love ones.

What lies behind Gillian's positive nature is a sad and tragic past: When Gillian and her sister were sent to Goldy Pond as potential preys for the demons to poach, her sister was eventually killed by Luce,[2] which greatly traumatized the girl and later stemmed to her now vengeful nature and thirst for (demon) blood, albeit she only showed it in times of seriousness such as hunting and killing the demons, or when Oliver told Emma of how him, Gillian and all the members of the resistance are aiming for their goal which is to kill all demons in Goldy Pond.[3] Nevertheless, Gillian would still display her usual high-spirited and outgoing demeanor under normal circumstances.

Nigel and Gillian killing demons

Without a second thought, Gillian proceeded to kill all of the demons within her sight.

When Gillian finally got her opportunity to get her revenge on Luce and his servants for killing her sister years back, the former did not hesitate the slightest as she proceeded to kill all the demons within her sight. This demostrated how violent, ruthless and bloodthirsty she can get, at least towards the demons since they are responsible for numerous deaths of innocent lives, including her sister.

Despite the previously mentioned cons of her personality, Gillian did display good ones also. One noticeable one is her fierce love and loyalty towards her teammates and allies, particularly Nigel and Lucas. Gillian was willing to go to the extent of sacrificing her life to rescue Nigel so he and the others can be safe.[4] Gillian showed deep respect and admiration towards Lucas, and was thus greatly saddened and cried miserably when him and Mister sacrificed their lives when rescuing her and the other orphans from Andrew and his team.

History

Nigel and Gillian's past

Gillian crying next to the corpse of her dead sister.

Years ago, when Gillian and her sister were sent to Goldy Pond as potential preys for the demons to poach, her sister was eventually killed by Luce and his servants. A flashback of Gillian kneeling next to the corpse of her dead sister was shown, as the former was desperately calling out the latter.[5] Gillian somehow managed to flee from Luce and his servants' claws, and later joined the Goldy Pond Resistance sometime later. Gillian was equally as vengeful as the other six members of the team; all of them sharing the same goal and criteria, which is to seek revenge and kill the demons who had murdered and eaten their love ones earlier on during their initial days in Goldy Pond. For Gillian, the demon she sought to kill is Luce.

Plot

Search For Minerva Arc

Upon meeting Emma, Oliver introduced her to the members of the Goldy Pond Resistance. Gillian cheerfully introduced herself to Emma and showed Emma her Farm Identifier code that was implemented right below the center of her collarbone. She recalled how her sister was killed and went on to kill Luce's attendants and later Luce himself. Later, she is wounded due to a surprise attack from Bayon, rescued by Pepe and Nigel, and taken back to where Lucas and the younger kids are hiding out to receive medical care.
