Drawing, camping outside, counting stars, finding constellations, if things go wrong blaming it on her mom
Being a Camper (duhhhhh ;-;)
Deliah favours to be called 'Lila' which means night, which is a perfect name for a child of night. She's secretive and likes to be alone, but she's a star (pun not intended; sorry) when you get to meet her. She's really talkative if she can help it, and she is great at storytelling. Sometimes she might be overconfident or too proud, but she can normally tone down these flaws. Lila also likes to read those old and musty books of spells, potions and incantations, and she has infinite patience when she's doing or waiting for something she likes, aside from being ADHD.
Leon Starleigh was an actor for horror and thriller movies. He was surprisingly single, because he thought that "no mortal woman would capture his heart, only a worthy goddess would be enough". After a long night of working at the set, Leon settled at a bar, drinking with his buddies, when a slender woman walked up to them and bought Leon a drink, for no reason at all. Leon thought the lady was quite hot, and they chatted all night before Leon had to go. They exchanged numbers, and over a few weeks, they started dating. Leon learnt that the mysterious lady loved to watch horrors and thrillers as well, and that they shared a lot of things in common. The lady introduced herself as Lylah. Lylah continued to hang around with Leon until she got an 'emergency call' from her boss and that she needed to leave right away. Leon was, of course, heartbroken, but he let her go anyway, afraid she would get in trouble. As a last gift, Lylah gave him a daughter to take care of.
Born on December 28th, Deliah 'Lila' Starleigh was born to superstar Leon Starleigh. She was a pretty much down to earth girl for a person whose father acted in movies and had a entire fandom of fans. She tried to keep her info about her dad down, but with one accidental leak, she is now known at school as the 'superstar girl'. Many students who loved her dad's movies basically worshipped her, and within a few weeks after the leak, Lila was granted a fandom of her own.
Her first monster attack was 3 days before she arrived at camp, so it wasn't long. Lila was fleeing from her 'fans' when a harpy smelled the cafeteria food and decided to invade. Lila was terrified, but she snatched her Celestial Bronze sword-a last gift from her mother that Lila never knew what to do with-and pulled a chocolate bar out of her pocket. It was a hard sacrifice, because it was such a waste of her favourite food, but she did it nevertheless, and the harpy, still hungry, dived in for the food. With a yell, Lila swung her sword blindly, unaware where she was aiming at because the harpy was too fast, and dust rained down. She had successfully killed the monster. Her 'fandom' was probably going to see what the commotion was about, so Lila fled.
Lila stumbled into a nymph-quite literally, she bumped her head against a tree- and she learnt about the truth of her mother. Her mother was a Greek goddess, her father was right, the Greek gods are running rampant in Manhattan, and her life was about to be wrecked. Lila followed the nymph, because the nymph worked for Camp Half-Blood and she was just taking a vacation, but the nymph was happy there was a demigod in need. She led Lila all the way to Camp Half-Blood, since it wasn't very far-Lila lived in New York-and Lila waited to be claimed.
Lila was claimed by the night goddess not too long ago, and she has already settled in, not seeming to mind that she only arrived three days earlier.
Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure weapon out of pure shadows which can be used for combat; however, only one weapon can be conjured at a time and it cannot be bigger than the one who conjured it. This can also be used for other non-combative objects, but within reason, something might be shaped like an iPod, but as shadows do not have any working parts and source of electricity, such as batteries, they would not actually play music.
Children of Nyx can create solid bullets out of shadows and fire them from their fingertips. The bullets fly fast enough to possibly tear into an opponent’s skin.
Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure a dome of solid shadows around them which will defend against attacks for a short time.

3 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx can cause true night in an area for a short time, blocking sunlight over a battlefield. Their passive boosts and the abilities of other demigods are affected accordingly. This effect lasts for at most a minute before fading back, and can only be used once a day. They can also create a pair of shadow wings to fly with (which drains less energy than shadow travel).
6 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx are able to create up to seven nocturnal animals, no larger than their normal sizes, to serve them for a short time. While the animals are summoned the user is slower, and they are drained whenever one of the animals is harmed or when the animals are released.
9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx have the ability to shed their flesh and turn into a state of pure night. While in this state, the user is granted flight and their existing abilities become stronger. They are intangible in this state and anyone they touch has their vision stripped away for the rest of the transformation; however, once the user changes back they will be extremely drained and immobile for a long time. They would possibly pass out.
