Wilhelmina Colyns, also know as Miss Willa Colyns, is one of the Council of Elders.


There is little known about Wilhelmina's life, but especially in Solis, she is famous for her scandalous journal - the Diary of Miss Wylla Colyns. Casteel Da'Neer jokes continuously that this is Poppys' favorite book and he brings it with him everywhere they go.

She was the one who sent Poppy to Casteels's room at the The Red Pearl. When confronted about it she admits that she "Simply felt right to do so."

She also shares that Casteel and Poppy were both looking for the same thing that night - to live.


She is an adventurous and fun person, who traveled through Solis following her instincts.
