Lilia Merriman was the adopted daughter of Joshua Merriman, a member of the Cult of Vor. Lilia herself is not considered a member of the Cult, although she does play a major role in Hymns to the Sun.

Joshua and his wife Eiko found Lilia as an orphan living in the streets of Hiberia. Not wanting her to suffer the fate of many orphans in the city, they took her in and raised her as their own.

Lilia was a teenager when Eiko died, and not long after her father joined the Cult. As his child, she was forced to follow their customs and rituals by Joshua, even though she did not personally follow the faith. Her frustrations grew until she turned sixteen, at which point she began to plan her escape.

At around the same time, Lilia became romantically involved with Athanasi, another Cult member. She began pressuring him to leave with her and start a new life in his native Hiberia, but he was reluctant. Seeing no other choice, Lilia prepared to go on her own.
