|“||You make me feel hopeful, too.||”|
Li'Ella is a female Lion introduced in the summer of 2014.
She is also a friend of Laval and his friends.
The adopted daughter of Tormak, Li-Ella is a member of the guards who watch over the hidden city of the Phoenix. She is tough and smart and more than able to take care of herself. But her world gets turned upside down when she meets Laval and discovers that there are lions living someplace besides the hidden city, and some of them are cute. What neither she nor Laval knows is that the evil Sir Fangar is also interested in Li’Ella and wants her to be his queen when he conquers Chima. Laval, Li’Ella and Fangar are heading for a showdown …
Li'Ella was first seen after the Blazing Phoenix Bastion landed on Crescent Hill. She caught Laval's attention, but to a lesser extent, Tormak's as well, and he knocked the Lion down onto his back. The Lioness told her father to stop, Fluminox saying they are here to protect. Tormak told him he was simply protecting Li'Ella, in this case from Laval, who she laughed at.
Laval later thanked her personally for saving the heroes and making him feel 'hopeful'. She herself felt hopeful as well, and she laughed again, guarding the Temple. When Laval mentioned he was in love with her to Lagravis, he himself, for the first time in a very long while, laughed at his so-called love.
- Li'Ella and Laval have a mutual crush on each other.
- Li'Ella was found in the tunnels, abandoned as a young, possibly newborn cub. It is unknown how she wound up there and who her birth parents were/are.
- In Wings of Fire, Li'Ella may have some connection to Tormak. Whenever Tormak feels pain, Li'Ella will feel pain too.
- Sir Fangar claims he burned her village.
- Li'Ella appears to be sensitive to loud noises, this is best shown at Cool and Collected, where she covered her ears as the Flying Phoenix Flame Bastion flew over her, even after it passed. Another episode is The Phoenix has Landed, where she covers her ears and yells as Mungus is playing his trunk.
