Lila (Lolita Chakrabarti) owns the smithy in Herot, working with her daughter Vishka. She was a widow, her husband having died six summers ago.


Lila - Runs the Herot's Smithy (Lolita Chakrabarti)

Optimistic and warm, Lila runs the Smithy within the heart of the community alongside her blacksmith daughter, Vishka. Lila is a free-spirited widow, who speaks her mind, is comfortable in her own skin and can take care of herself and her own when the need arises. [1]


She is introduced to Breca by Red at the feast in Hrothgar's honour. They wed and bed each other on the same night, leading Vishka to angrily strike Breca on the following morning. When asked by her daughter what she was thinking, Lila told her that "[she] wasn't." She later tends to Breca's injuries, sustained by the mudborn beast, with Elvina. (Episode 1)
