Laila is a young witch born to Mother South.


Laila was born to Mother South, before finding her way to Calcedon under the care of Glinda.[1]

After Leith returned to Calcedon, Laila, among others, was introduced to her. Later, while eating food, Gann watched as Laila made Leith's bowl move across the table with her magic. When she physically moved it back, Laila moved it again. Leith attempted to move it herself with magic, but just turned it to stone, causing all of the girls to laugh. At another meal, Gann watched on as Laila did the same thing again, but this time Leith was able to move it with magic, causing all of the girls to applaud her. Later that night, when Dorothy Gale came to collect Leith, Laila and Gann stood in front of her, protecting her.[1]
