|“||Lilac LaRoux, heiress to the LaRoux Industires empire, richest girl in the galaxy.||”|
When she was fourteen, she fell in love with another boy, Simon Marchant. When her father found out, he arranged that Simon was sent to war, where he died.
Since then, Lilac is really careful not to fall in love with anybody - till she meets Tarver.
From the name of the shrub with purple or white flowers. It is derived via Arabic from Persian.
