I can’t believe it’s come to this. I must inform Lord Hector of these events... If I hurry, I may be in time. What!?
— Leila, before she is startled by Ephidel
...This can’t be. She was one of our best spies. Leila...
— Hector in Chapter18E/19H: Thre Dread Isle
...Why do you apologize, my lord? Leila blundered. ...That’s all.
— Matthew to Hector in Chapter18E/19H: The Dread Isle
After this mission, I was going to ask her to put this life behind her... Waited too long, didn’t I? Ha... ...My lord, might I...rejoin you later? She has to be buried...
— Matthew to Hector in Chapter18E/19H: The Dread Isle

  • Her battle animations are fully sprited: despite having the map sprite that resembles an Assassin, she is a Thief, and fights like one. However, her critical hit, dodge, and magic sword animations go semi-unused while her unarmed animation goes unused. She does have her normal animation play when she gets killed by Jaffar.
