Lyla is the main character in Mako: Island of Secrets. There are rumors that Lyla will be the rebel mermaid, much like Rikki  in H2O: Just Add Water. She's a fiery mermaid, and she's very determined and passionate. Over time, Lyla develops feelings for merman, Zac.

Background

Personality

A loner and a bit of a rebel, Lyla loves her life as a mermaid and is perfectly content swimming alone all day. She has her own fin in her own way, and she isn't used to having to rely on others, or even cooperating, so she can be a little prickly at times.

When the three mermaids decide to venture onto land to rectify their mistake, Lyla takes a mercenary approach- get legs, sort out the problem, get back to the ocean. But things don't quite go as smoothly as she planned, and Lyla has to accept that she might be on land for a while, but she doesn't have to like it!

As a general rule, Lyla doesn't like mingling with land dwellers but as the series progresses, despite her best efforts, she is drawn to Zac. She becomes Zac's go to confidant, but conflict arises when Zac learns she hid her secret from him and means to take his powers away. Will Lyla's feelings for Zac win out over her desire to go back to the ocean?

By the series end, aloof Lyla will have learned the importance of friendship and after starting out as the most reluctant to go ashore, it will be Lyla who's the most reluctant to return to the sea.

Appearance

Lyla is a very pretty teenage girl, and has  blonde hair and blue eyes. Her hair is long and straight, but actually sometimes her hair is also a little bit curly. She is not the tallest person, but she is medium height, and she is very slim. Her skin is smooth and gently fair.

In a human form she usually has her hair let down, but sometimes she has two ponytails or only one side ponytail. As a mermaid, her hair is let down and she has an orange-scaled tail with a matching orange-scaled top.

Mermaid Powers

Lyla possesses the ability to transform into a mermaid ten seconds after the touch of water. Once her body is completely dry, she turns back into a human along with the outfit she was wearing before she transformed. As a mermaid, she has the ability to swim at super speed of 600km/h, hold her breath for more than fifteen minutes, and dive at a depth lower than any ordinary human being is capable of.

Hydrokinesis

In "Meeting Rita", Lyla uses this power to make the water fountain at Suncoast High explode so Zac would get wet.

Telekinesis

She uses it to increase the boat's speed in "Dolphin Tale" and to move a photo cube in "Getting Legs". She also uses it in "Lyla Alone" to turn off the fan in the cool room so she could dry her tail using Hydro-Thermokinesis.  She also used this power to try to make the Trident come to her in "Nowhere To Hide"

Hydro-Thermokinesis

In "Lyla Alone", after the waitress spilled the drink on her and turned into a mermaid in the cool room, she was using this power to dry her tail.

Invisibility

To avoid anyone finding out she's a mermaid in "Lyla Alone" after a waitress spilled a drink on her and she turned into a mermaid in the cool room she turned herself invisible, and to protect their secret from Zac in "Close Call" Lyla turns Sirena and herself invisible.

Hydro-Cryokinesis

In "Lyla Alone", Lyla uses this power to freeze the water droplets falling from the ceiling of the cool room. In "Blizzard", Lyla accidentally also uses this power in the pool, in Grotto.

Aerokinesis

Lyla uses this power in "Getting Legs" to knock over the lifeguard tower that Zac was in, hoping to take away his powers.

Volume Reduction

Lyla used this power to shrink a lemon in "Sirena's Secret".
