|Occupation:||Owner of an occult shop|
Lirio was the owner of an occult shop as well as a kind and friendly mentor of Sarah Bailey.
Nancy Downs, Bonnie and Rochelle are frequent visitors to Lirio's store, although they usually steal supplies rather than pay for them. Lirio has apparently noticed this and is pleasantly surprised when Sarah first visits her shop and chooses to pay for her items. Lirio stops Sarah from going behind the curtain to her private sanctuary, stating "That's not for you." She senses Sarah's power and also correctly deduces that Sarah's ring belonged to her mother; she also deduces that Sarah's mother was a natural witch herself, but does not reveal this to Sarah until late in the film.
Lirio offers Sarah advice on witchcraft and also gives her a a book titled "Beginners Guide to the Craft". She later tries to dissuade Nancy from buying the book "Invoking the Spirit", saying it is dangerous for an inexperienced witch and also perhaps sensing Nancy's instability and lust for power. Nancy, however, brushes off her warnings. When her coven turns on her, Sarah goes to Lirio for help. Lirio supports Sarah, telling her that she has a light inside her "stronger than she's ever known" and that her mother's spirit watches over her. Lirio finally shows her the sanctuary, which she reveals was built on a place of great magical energy, she attempts to help Sarah to invoke Manon and stand up to the others. Sarah, frightened by an glamour of the shop exploding, runs away in terror, whilst Lirio begs her to return. Sarah later does heed Lirio's words and is able to invoke Manon, defeating Bonnie, Rochelle and Nancy, and binding their power.
Sarah presumably remains good friends with Lirio after the events of the film.
Lirio is shown to be a kind, patient and wise woman, who greatly respects the laws of magic. She tries to steer the girls away from using their magic for dark or selfish purposes; however, it seems that she ultimately allows the girls to make their own choices, probably believing they need to learn from their mistakes and face the consequences of their actions. Lirio does, however, try to help Sarah to overcome her insecurities and tap into her full power. She takes on an almost maternal role towards Sarah, seeing a great deal of potential in her and expressing concern for her well-being.
Lirio is a fair-skinned young woman with long dark hair and almond-brown eyes.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Though it was never revealed as to whether or not Lirio is a natural witch, she was still shown to be a powerful, intuitive, and extremely knowledgeable witch in her own right. Examples of witchcraft powers that were either indicated or hinted to be possessed by her include:
[Psychometry]: From her first meeting with Sarah, Lirio was able to tell that Sarah's ring had been her late mother's, and was even able to sense that Sarah was a natural witch whose powers came from within.
Pyrokinesis: When Lirio blew into a candle, many others lit up by themselves.
Invocation: Lirio tried to guide Sarah in invoking the Spirit with her to defeat Nancy.
Extensive knowledge of magic: Lirio was shown to be the most knowledgeable witch in the film, offering excellent advice to Sarah and her friends, though Sarah is the only one who takes them to heart. For example, she disabuses Sarah of the notion that magic has a colour or morality, and proceeds to warn her and her friends of the Wiccan Rule of Three ("whatever you send out there, you get back times three"). She also tried to warn Nancy about invoking the Spirit as it could be very dangerous for an inexperienced practitioner, but Nancy rebuffed her.
