Goddess Ilias, also known as The Divine Light Goddess or the Goddess that Created the World, is one of the main characters in Monster Girl Quest: Paradox.
When Luka is climbing the mountain to save Hans, Ilias falls from the sky and makes a crater right in front of him. She proclaims herself the Goddess of Creation but Luka brushes her off due to her tiny form. She tries to punish him with Thunder of Retribution, but ends up only giving Luka a tiny static shock. She realizes she has been sealed but has no memory of how it happened, and runs off on her own.
Luka saves Hans and returns to Iliasville for his baptism despite Goddess Ilias having disappeared since the Great Disaster, thirty years ago. However, another version of the goddess appear in front of the trio and gives Luka the mission to save the world which risks to be covered in darkness, repeating her warning.
Sonya warns Luka of a fight going on his house between two little girls. He arrives to find Alice and Ilias in a childish quarrel which he puts a stop to. They force Luka to choose one of them to go along with him. If Luka choose Ilias, she joins the party but is shocked to learn that Luka just came from his baptism where she, allegedly, showed up. Now, Luka's dad is still alive and he has a new childhood friend and Ilias doesn't understand any of it, only that this world is not supposed to be this way.
Ilias tells she doesn't remember appearing in front of Luka. It is also one of the mistery she wants to solve, as she think the other one might be an impostor. Ilias accompanies Luka to Iliasburg but before that.
Ilias meets Nero, a mysterious man with a scythe claiming to be just a traveler passing by. Ilias doesn't know him and mistrust his appaering at Iliasville. Luka later helps a Slime Girl but Ilias is known to hate monsters but due to their condition to travel, she reluctantly agree to take a slime with them.
Upon leaving Iliasville Ilias managed to steal Pocket Castle from Alice when they were fighting, she approves of Luka using this for their adventure and explores the interior of the castle. She explains the functions of the castle and the maid.
On their first camp, Ilias warns Luka not to trust her childhood friend Sonya, as she knows she doesn't exist in her eyes but Luka knows her as friend. Ilias just tells Luka to be on his guard. Ilias teaches Luka a new skill based on Angels called Angel Dance, Luka may not be on the level of Micaela but she commends him for learning the skill faster.
Arriving in Iliasburg, a new presence appears and she calls herself "The White Rabbit", a mysterious character jumping out of nowhere and she says that they thought to meet Granberia. Ilias gets annoyed at her for not explaining the circumstances as her "role" is to guide Alice. If Luka asked the White Rabbit about Granberia he will have a flash moment of Granberia. Ilias demands to know what was Luka's vision is all about, but the White Rabbit doesn't explain well enough except that she claims that the space and time is interacting with Luka's mind. The White Rabbit explains that Chaos is not the same as darkness like Ilias thought. The White Rabbit explains that with both Holy and Dark can create chaos. Ilias was puzzled that she wants the power of Chaos as the latter said. If Luka chooses to force the information out of the White Rabbit. Ilias is shocked that a Rabbit like herself has the power of Space and TIme after she summoned a copy and paste version of Bunny Slime and two Slime Girls from another dimension. The White Rabbit was going to eliminate Ilias but if that happens the Chaos would spread and speed up the process. After the fight Luka picks up a Key that only he can see.
If Luka opens up the door to Hades and returns, Ilias says that the Hades realm doesn't exist. Rumors of 4 bandits and Amira is missing has spread to Iliasburg. On the Inn Ilias stumbles onto Alice wanting Ama-Dangos and leaves upon being insulted for not having any companions. Ilias didn't wanna leave to Sentora until the White Rabbit is caught.
Entering the caves where the 4 bandits are, Ilias wants to execute the 4 bandits but Luka doesn't want that and instead asked them to apologize to the town. The rumors about Amira being kidnapped was a lie according to Ilias, she is enraged by the fact that Amira was never kidnapped and Amira has some valuable information about the White Rabbit for a price, there are rumors of Phoenix Tails being sold out by someone called Don Dahlia, Ilias says that Phoenix don't normally involve in human affairs.
Mithra Sealed Castle
When Luka and the party arrive on a ruined castle, Ilias is familar with the place as it called Mithra Sealed Castle as she and the Dark Goddess Alipheese I used the weapons on the pedestals during the Great Monsters War but its now an empty place and had no use for it .
Ilias helped in on the secret business behind Don Dahlia and the Phoenix Tail Scam. She stole a key to Don Dahlia's house to confront the Culprit as she discovers that Don Dahlia was just lying to the Phoenix about the feathers and defeated the Phoenix.
Entering the Pornof Town she heard rumors about a rabbit staying at the inn only to find out it was different Rabbit but the Rabbit Girl mentions that another Rabbit was heading to a Tartarus Rift where the investigation team are located. Ilias wants to gear up before heading to Tartarus.

Ilias Temple Ruins
Ilias in her sealed form finally meet the so-called fake Ilias in the Ilias Temple Ruins in part 2. She's informed that she's a shard of her original self who got created as a side effect of her death at the end of the true story combined with the use of the Six Ancestors Great Seal, and later got brought in the Paradox world in hope of solving the Paradox here.
"Luka, just slice her head off and be done with it. We'll bury her in the field and let her blood fertilize the strawberries." - Ilias advising Luka on how to help out a farmer with an Imp in their field.
If chosen as Luka's companion, Ilias teaches Luka the Angel Dance skill in the first campfire scene, the Holy Light and Meditation skills in the second, the Blade of Healing skill on the boat to Nataliaport, and the High Charge skill in the third and last campfire scene of part 1.
If not chosen to be Luka's companion, Luka and Alice will find Ilias at set locations in the world, gathering allies and trying to figure out what happened to her on her own, or eating lunch.
Her first appearance is in the Irina Mountains South Cave , where she recruits the Slime Girl, Puruko. She's next seen in the village, Rostrum, resting in one of the abandoned houses. Her third appearance is at the pier in Iliasport, where she is joined by the Dog Girl, Wanko. Afterwards, she appears again at Mt. Saint Amos halfway up the mountain. She appears once again in Grandeur , where she can be seen enjoying the free samples at one of the food stalls along with her new companions.
In part 2, she's also regularly encountered in the first half of the game. She's first seen in the caves leading to Port Marle as she also wants to reach the Noah region. She (somehow) found an alternative way to reach the region, as she can be encountered once again in Grand Noah as Luka joins the Queen's cup. She did not pass the first rounds. She eventually makes her way to Yamatai Village where she's seen eating with her companions. Luka's group encounter her once more in Gold Fort where she got imprisonned for trying to sneak in, and again in Grangold Castle, in the same circumstances. She still ends up invited to the feast after the peace between the kingdoms is established, and assists to the following declaration of war. She's later seen with her companions seen aboard the Ghost Ship, completely terrified by the gloomy ambiance.

...Wait, that's not even a real skill!
Promestein: "What's wrong? You're staring at me."
Ilias: (This time I will have you re-educated. Locked away somewhere, you will be forced to listen to my teachings.)
Promestein: "Hmm, can I have one of your feathers? I want to perform a small chemical experiment using the holy element."
Ilias: "And then you'll become my loyal pawn. Fufufu ....." (Use your own.)
Ilias: "How rude. Now my words and thoughts are mixed up. You shouldn't speak while I'm in the middle of thinking."
Nuruko: "Kyukyuu, kyuu. ♪"
Ilias: "What a strange creature... Your composition is similar to that of an apoptosis, yet somehow different."
Ilias: "Speaking of resembling things... An octopus wiener?"
Ilias: "... Now I'm hungry."
With King of San Ilia:
King of San Ilia: "I must say, I absolutely did not expect the Goddess Ilias to be reduced to such an appearance..."
Ilias: "I'm surprised by your appearance as well..."
King of San Ilia: "Well, no matter what forms we take, I shall dedicate my flesh and blood to your service."
Ilias: "Even though your flesh is mechanical and your blood is oil? Well, no matter. I expect great things from you."
Torture: "I punish sinners..."
Ilias: "A monster magically created to mete out punishment is itself a sin."
Ilias: "Hey, what are you going to do to me?! Ahhhhh!!"
With Micaela-chan :
Micaela-chan: “Ilias... I've finished reading the Gospels of Seria. What's my next assignment?”
Ilias: “That's right, I'll give you these books to read next.”
Micaela-chan: “"Three Lost Letters of Betrayal", "How to Calm Your Anger", "Advice for Loyalty"... What are these books...?”
Ilias: “Well, they're for the sake of the future...”
Lucifina-chan: “Ilias! Let's play! ♪”
Ilias: “It's good to enjoy yourself, but... Like your older sister Micaela, you need to study.”
Ilias: “I-I understand... The rebellion...I can't let her rebel...”
“My children, you must never turn your backs on God. Faith is not something that comes only from within, it is something that...” Ilias starts preaching! But no one is listening.
“Mwahaha, taste the wrath of God! Evil creatures, return to the abyss from which you came!" Ilias digs a pit… And clumsily falls into it! (Ilias takes damage)
“Mwahaha, taste the wrath of God! Evil creatures, return to the abyss from which you came!" Ilias digs a pit… And (Enemy) carelessly falls into it! (Enemy takes damage)
“Mmm, I'm tired. Do not awaken me for a while." Ilias takes a nap! (Ilias falls asleep)
“As a special treat, I will allow you to witness the noble dance of a Goddess." Ilias dances a happy little dance! But nothing happens...
“I'll be standing here... I mean watching over you all. Keep your spirits high!" Ilias cheers on the others! But no one is listening...
“I'll be standing here... I mean watching over you all. Keep your spirits high!" Ilias cheers on the others! Their morale rises! (Increeases parties attack and magic)
“You've found your way here again? You really are a pathetic hero." Ilias jumps the gun and starts an evaluation! But no one is listening...
“I am the all-knowing, and all-powerful Goddess, Ilias… Hmm, if I come straight down like this you could look up and see my panties. I should probably descend from the heavens at an angle to prevent that…" Ilias is practicing her descent to Earth.
“Taste my Lightning of Judgment, Alispheese! You foul incarnation of evil! Boom! Gwah! Ilias you are too powerful for me! I stand no chance! Bweh." Ilias is playing out The Great Monster War by herself.
Ilias: Just as good as I'd expect from someone who learned how to cook from Lucifina. That really hit the spot
Ilias: First off, we need to bolster and equip our forces at Iliasburg. It be a suicide to head to the north the way we are now
Ilias: That's because i given countless evaluations to disappointing heroes over the years. You could say I wrote the standard practices myself...
Ilias: Never mind those. Alas, why did this cruel fate befall me .
Ilias: To be precise, to escape from that seal, I had to reduce myself to this size.
Ilias: The Six Ancestors' Great Seal maintains itself by drwing on the sealed person's own power. The stronger the power, the stronger the seal. As a result, the spell isn't effective against the weak. Knowing that, I must have been able to escape by reducing my power. It took a considerable amount of time to split off most of it apparently, and in addition, i couldn't keep my normal size or all my memories either.
Ilias: Black Alice is the most likely culprit. Or it could have been the work of Promestein. It's also possible the Dark Goddess herself is behind it all. If that's the case, that kitsune becomes very conspicious...
Ilias: There are many points around the world that are especially close to Heaven, one of which was nearby. However...
Ilias: I'm not crying...
Ilias: I need to get somewhere closer to Heaven where my voice is more likely to reach them. The Holy Mountain Amos in North Sentora would be ideal. Once we get there, I'll make another attempt to summon them, but we'll have to travel through heavily monster-infested lands first.
Ilias: Yes, much to my delight, she is the current Monster Lord. Seeing her look so pathetic made me feel a lot better about my own situation. Ilias: No, I think she's affected by something else. She was blabbering about a rabbit doing something to her or something. A white rabbit leading Alice... That seems like something important... It's no use, something is screwing with my memory. I'm going to be limited until I can deal with that.
Ilias: Using the bathroom? Take your time.
Ilias: While she's gone, I want to warn you, Luka. You shouldn't trust that girl.
Ilias: As creator of the world, I know every living person in it. Even with my memory loss, I can still remember every man and woman. So keeping that in mind... I don't know this Sonya person. In other words, she's someone who shouldn't exist. The girl Sonya does not belong in this world.
Ilias: If don't know her, she doesn't exist. We've met one other person who fits that description too. Nero, the black-clothed man we ran into this afternoon. I have no recollection of him either.
Ilias: I don't think she's trying to deceive us though. It's possible she isn't aware of it. Just what is going on with the world... I'm this world's Goddess. There shouldn't be things I don't understand.
Ilias: Don't let your guard down, Luka.
Ilias: I'll be keeping my eyes on her. ...anyway, I think it's about time to sleep.
- As of Part 2, Ilias is the only companion who has a request scene requiring more than 100 affection
- Ilias' normal pocket castle greeting is a reference to, ironically enough, the theme song for the Devilman anime
- She and Nero are the only ones who managed to know who the Armored Berserker really is due to its desire to kill angels.
