Lily Seven was the birth mother of Detective Frieda Frisk. Lily had sold Frieda to the baby broker Clair Howell shortly after Frieda was born.

Years later, Howell contacted Lily and offered her money to re-connect with Frisk and try to get Frisk to stop her investigation into Howell's activities. Lily established a relationship with Frisk, spending time with her in social situations. Eventually, Lily drugged Frisk during a performance at the Patterson Playhouse, enabling Clair and her accomplice Frank to leave Frisk in a death-trap.

Frisk was rescued and the Howells are presumed to have been killed while attempting to flee the city. It was implied that Lily Seven would face legal consequences for her involvement in Frisk's abduction, but the exact nature of the charges against her was not made clear.
