The name Lily refers to more than one character, item or concept. For a list of other meanings, see Lily (disambiguation).

Lily was one of the children who attended the Feast of Good Children when Smith Smithson ate the Fay-star that had been put in the Great Cake. Long after he had retired, the Master Cook at that occasion, Nokes, was trying to figure out who had swallowed the Fay-star and he remembered Lily, the Draper's daughter. Nokes claimed that Lily had swallowed pins as a baby and came to no harm. Alf, who had been Nokes' apprentice at the time, said that Lily had only eaten the paste and the sugar, and gave the inside of her slice of the Cake to another boy.[1]
