Lilian Voss is a recently "recovered" undead, first uncovered by the player from a coffin inside the Shadow Grave of Deathknell. The player, while leveling in Tirisfal Glades, will often either encounter or hear about Lilian up until the player helps her kill her father High Priest Benedictus Voss.
Later on she infiltrated the Scarlet Monastery and enlisted the aid of adventurers in order to retrieve the and finish off High Inquisitor Whitemane by stabbing her with them. She then took the blades and went to Scholomance to take revenge on Darkmaster Gandling, the headmaster of the necromancy school.

Before her death
She was raised by her father High Priest Voss as a weapon against the plague as a member of the Scarlet Crusade, giving up her childhood. She studied stealth, sorcery, martial arts and anything else that would make herself stronger.
Raised in Tirisfal Glades
After she died Lilian was raised as an undead by the Forsaken's Val'kyr. When Forsaken adventurers approached her to recruit her into the Forsaken's ranks, she ran away in denial of her undeath, claiming that her father would protect her. She instantly cried for her father and ran away screaming for her life, pleading to be taken back home. Later she is found by Novice Elreth in Deathknell. To show her what she really is and to join the Forsaken, Novice Elreth gave the Forsaken adventurer a hand mirror. When Lilian saw her own face in the mirror she runs away, again calling for her father and denying her life as an undead.
Later on she is captured by the Scarlet Crusade and is imprisoned. She finds out her father has disowned her and has ordered Lilian's execution. Enraged by this, Lilian passes through the bars of her cage, ignites herself in purple flames and instantly kills her former comrade.
Later on in the zone, dozens of Scarlet Crusaders were found that had been killed in the same fashion, until Lilian was encountered again by a Horde adventurer. She was escorted to her father, a Priest of the Scarlet Crusade. Lilian grabbed Benedictus and climbed up the walls of the towers, strangling and killing him in the process. She then ran off, and hadn't been seen since then.

Lilian appeared again in revamped Scarlet Monastery instances as a Hooded Crusader, directing adventurers to clear up any rebuilding Scarlet forces inside the Monastery and to retrieve the , the only weapon that is able to permanently kill High Inquisitor Whitemane. After the deed was done, Lilian finally revealed herself and took the blades, venturing to eradicate the Scourge remnant in Scholomance, including Darkmaster Gandling.
Later High Executor Derrington at the Bulwark received reports of Scarlet Crusade activity at a small camp east of Felstone Field, now known as the Charred Outpost. He sends Horde adventurers to the Western Plaguelands to inspect the encroaching Scarlets, but when they reached their camp they were all dead and engulfed in purple flames, implying that Lilian had passed through the area.
Lilian fought her way through Gandling's domain, only to be subdued by the darkmaster himself. Now turned against her allies, she had to be freed from the necromancer's control by defeating her in combat. After the Necromancer fled, Lilian pleaded the adventurers to leave her to die alone.

- Although Lilian does not have a completely unique model, it's unusual for a non-death knight with the Forsaken model to have glowing blue eyes (rather than yellow ones). Another notable example is Lord Godfrey.
- Many of Lilian's attacks cause her victims to erupt in purple flames, leaving her mark throughout Scarlet encampments in Tirisfal Glades and the Western Plaguelands. These kinds of attacks also appear in the fight against Lilian in Scholomance.
