Lily as she appears in her character bio on Twitter.[1]

"On an emotional scale of 1-10, Lily is at a -4. Lily’s perpetually unamused facial expression has one clear message: stay away.
If you check her Spotify, she *might* have Girl in Red on her playlist. Who needs therapy when you can just dye your hair? 🥀
―Lily's official character bio on the Duolingo Instagram[1]

Lily is one of the Duolingo characters who appears in the app. She is a lethargic loner, but is still friendly. She is best friends with Zari, despite their contrasting personalities.
