Illia was born in Illoran in a small fishing village situated near its border. The country of Aurba had occupied a few territories north of their location and was currently at war with the country of Fraxina. As a result, Illia and her friends grew in a wartorn world during an event that would later be known as the God War. When she was eleven, priests from the Church of Aurba invaded her home and killed everyone there, including her family who had worshipped the Goddess Eltariel, the Church's principal object of faith. Afterward, Illia cut her ties with the church and followed her friend Razdan. She and her friends entered Lexida Academy where they became the most renown students in the history of the school. In their sixth year, Illia and her friends were forced from the school as it came under attack by the Church's forces in a bid to kill the Headmaster.
Over the next several years, Illia and her friends formed the Skywatch, a group dedicated to fighting the Goddess Eltariel and her following. They waged a warpath across all of Etheria, winning and losing battles and overall, gaining the support of the citizens. During the battle of Fraxina, Illia was captured and while under the hold of the church was tortured. When her friends came to rescue her, Razdan was severely injured and beaten in front of her. Illia snapped and achieved a state beyond transcendence known as Primal Transcendence. She began to indiscriminately slaughter every member of the church and sunk the artificial continent that they had erected.
At the war's climax, Skywatch invaded the realm of Prima and tore a pathway to the realm of Clockwork with the help of the Goddess, Akasha. Illia, using her Concept Magic and combined with Creoz's Aion and Samuel's Eye of Umbra Ability, bought Razdan enough time to fight the Goddess Eltariel. However, their efforts were in vain when Arion, Seretaro, and Eterion came to Eltariel's assistance. Forced to fight the Gods, Illia, Creoz, Samuel, and the other members of Skywatch fought Arion, Eterion, and Seretaro while Razdan battled Eltariel. Eventually, they all sensed a drop in Eltariel's energy and Razdan appeared in his Illuminated State with a defeated Eltariel.
With the God War finally over, Illia and Razdan married under the eyes of Serenia, the Goddess of Love, Marriage, and Family. Illia gave birth to her daughter Auralia. However, several years after the end of the God War, Samuel came with the intention of destroying all of Etheria. The former members of the Skywatch all fought against their friend. Razdan and Samuel both died fighting each other. Devastated, Illia stayed strong and raised Auralia and after she had graduated and became a member of the Neo Skywatch, Illia retreated into a dimension she created for herself and remained there until Rosa and her friends sought her out.
Illia is a beautiful woman with long violet hair. She wears white robes with red embroidery. Her right arm is encased in a black and red sleeve. She has soft violet eyes that hide sadness within them. She has been described by Kanna to be a tragic beauty that rivals even the Goddesses of Prima themselves.
Illia was once a very happy girl, living happily with her parents in their small fishing town. She lived and laughed like a normal child. Her kind heart made her loved by the other members of the village. She was responsible, more so than her best friend Razdan. Illia was also very serious and took her job as a seamstress seriously.
However, following the attack of the Church of Aurba on her town, Illia's personality changed drastically. She became more cold and withdrawn, only being herself around her friends. She blamed her weakness for her parents' deaths and threw herself into her studies. This caused her to clash with Razdan who wanted her to live. This put an immense strain on their relationship. With the passing years, Illia became colder and more ruthless, taking pleasure in defeating those who claimed themselves as faithful to the Goddess Eltariel. It wasn't until her match with Razdan that she changed to her former self. She was forced to confront her past and she broke down.
During the climax years of the God War, Illia became dedicated to saving everyone from the grasp of the Church, even those who were faithful to Eltariel but did not agree with the Church. She became a force on the battlefield, ruthless and cold to the members of the Church she fought. Due to the fact that she did not possess an iota of mercy towards any radical members, she became known as the Sage of Slaughter. However, Illia did give those who defected from the Church a second chance.
Following the God War, Illia became the Illia she was back when she was younger. Her kind heart resurfaced once more and Razdan when speaking to Rosa described her as a very loving wife and mother. However, her kind persona became broken when the man she saw as her own brother betrayed them and tried to destroy all of Etheria and Materia. With the death of her husband and her best friend, Illia tried her best to raise her daughter and once deeming that she was ready to stand by herself, retreated into her own personal dimension.

Primal Magic: Apocrypha
Apocrypha is a Primal Magic associated with the Mind and Emotions. Users of this magic can attack others through their minds, twisting their minds to the user's wills, as well as altering and manipulating memories. Another aspect of this magic is the power to control Eldritch Beings under the service of the Lesser Primal Elesia. Illia Merravine uses the Primal Magic: Apocrypha to create guardians for her realm as well as erase the memories of anyone who accidentally stumbles upon it.
An elevated state of being that can only be obtained by powerful mages. Transcendence allows them to "transcend" their limits bolstering their magical and physical powers, boosting their strength, speed, and defense up to twenty times the norm. This allows mages to fight on par with beings much stronger than they are. Illia has a mutated version of Transcendence known as Primal Transcendence which boosts her power more than a normal Transcendence. Everything is boosted to 100 times the norm.
Illia can use Concept Magic and focuses on the use of Magic pertaining to the natural forces of Lower Space. She can control and manipulate the concepts of space, time, entropy, and destruction.
- Concept Magic: Destruction: Illia draws upon the very concept of destruction itself to destroy anything she wishes. This magic can overcome the healing factors of beings such as Gods as she nearly killed Seretaro with such magic. Illia was also able to nearly sunder a large portion of Primus with this magic.
