~ Lilly Burns

We used to work together, she was a gorgeous fashion model, while I made her the most beautiful clothes I could give her. Me and her always used to choose things together, and the name is one of them.
~ Arthur Burns talking about Lilly.

Lilly Burns is a supporting character in the cartoon series Doll Eye appearing in comics and story-based animations. She is the mother of the now vicious Mystery Burns and the wife of Arthur Burns. She has been known to support the young Mystery Burns before he had become evil until she has gone through the constant abuse from Arthur and died for an intended reason that is supposed to be unknown for time being. In Mystery's mind being depicted as a flower head.


Lilly Burns is the polar opposite of Mystery's abusive father. Lilly is a loving caring mother and would cheer up and lighten up Mystery when he felt down. She is the kindest towards Mystery Burns which was the reason for her being constantly looked upon by him and the reason why Mystery Burns' sexuality change with him being non-binary all the way to pansexual/gay. She eventually has a tragic ending with her death for a "mysterious circumstance" that may have been caused by Arthur Burns abusive behavior with yelling and shouting insulting remarks towards her being verbally and possibly physically abusive towards her that may have led to her starving herself as fans implied and seen throughout the past comics and retellings of her.


Lilly Burns appears to be a cat with bright magenta and a black dress. She has blue eyes and her hair bangs, tail, and ears appears to be smooth than Arthur Burns much like the past younger Mystery Burns who now appears to have more spikey wild hair like his father Arthur Burns. She wears net stocking and black high heels.

Through various flashbacks in Doll Eye, Lilly now appears to be depicted now with a black dress, with black high heels, net stockings, with her head being replaced with a spikey flower which seems to symbolize her, especially in other varieties of drawings depicting her.

Early Life

Lilly Burns and Arthur Burns had worked on an organization for the Burns Fashion Company that Arthur Burns was the CEO of. Arthur would make certain dresses for Lilly Burns to dress. They eventually had a child named Jeremy Burns and ever since then things have gotten worse. Arthur Burns had been through war during the Fashion Company giving him Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which led to his abusive ways towards Lilly and their son. Eventually, Lilly died for "mysterious circumstances" that are not revealed and it is theorized and rumored that she died from starving herself due to the problems with Jeremy and her husband Arthur Burns.


Arthur Burns

Lilly Burns and Arthur used to love each other a lot until Arthur's post-traumatic stress disorder got the better of him causing him to become more abusive verbally insulting Lilly which led to her starving (possibly intentionally) more and more until she would die. Later after her death, Arthur would eventually regret his every single aggressive actions with blaming her for a lot of things as he mentioned through various webcomics and media.

Mystery Burns

Mystery Burns becomes somewhat of the problem with Lilly and her maintaining the Burns Fashion Company but wished for freedom for Mystery. She was looked up to a lot by Jeremy to the point of Jeremy changing their sexuality/orientation numerous times and having a terribly messed up mental state from the grief of the death of Lilly Burns. Mystery would often imagine her in numerous drawings imagining her but with a flower on her head either as from the hallucinations knowing that Mystery suffers from some sort of mental illness with some type of psychotic trauma or just with trying to make memories out of her through numerous drawings.
