Ovarian cancer in , resulted in a hysterectomy and chemotherapy Hospitalized for smoke inhalation after explosion at Genevieve's estate Crimes Committed Aiding and abetting a fugitive Daniel Romalotti ; charges were probated after she was sent away to boarding school and was to have no contact with Daniel Brief Character History One night when Drucilla Winters had taken a double dose of her cold medication which left her groggy, and Neil's brother Malcolm was asked to stop by and check on her, she mistook him for her husband Neil, and invited him to her bed.
His secret desires for Dru got the best of him that night when he thought she really wanted him. After their love-making Malcolm realized he had made a terrible mistake and confided in Dru's sister Olivia. Dru made Malcolm swear that he would never mention what happened between them to anyone else, especially Neil. Dru soon found herself pregnant, and not knowing which Winters brother was the father, considered abortion.
But when the doctor told Dru she had a condition that made it lucky she had conceived, let alone ever would again, she reconsidered. Dru and Malcolm decided the baby would remain Neil's no matter what, and only they and her sister Olivia would know the incident had ever happened. Lily's best friend was always her cousin Nate, son of Dru's sister Olivia and the deceased Nathan Hastings. After the birth of her baby Lily, Dru signed a contract and returned to modeling, which took her away from home and infuriated Neil.
Neil felt that unless a wife had a meaningful job like being a doctor like Liv , her place was in the home. In his loneliness he turned to the recently widowed Liv, who agreed with his Neanderthal ideas. When Dru told a reporter that she owed her career to her wonderful understanding husband, Neil caved in and they reconciled. When Dru realized that Neil was actually bent on keeping Dru pregnant and unable to model she started on the pill behind his back.
Meanwhile, thanks mainly to Malcolm's bond with Nate since the death of his father, Malcolm now a successful photographer fell in love with Olivia and proposed. Neil discovered Dru's deception and moved out, determined to stay out of his wife and daughter's lives. Time passed and Dru and Neil reunited and split again and again thanks to Neil's beliefs conflicting with Dru's dreams. Dru finally took off with Lily for the runways of Paris and filed for divorce.
Dru showed up at Neil's apartment in the summer of with the now 14 year old Lily in tow, claiming Lily needs her father to change her smart-mouth attitude. But Dru was surprised to find that Neil had quit his job, become an alcoholic, and was living with barmaid Serena in a seedy part of town. Dru was followed soon by her current boyfriend and Lily's best friend, Psychiatrist Wesley Carter.
After hitting bottom, Neil, with the help of Serena, decided to dry out for his daughter's sake. Lily wanted Wesley, so it didn't really help their relationship. Colleen made friends with Lily Winters after finding they had a lot in common, both being transplanted to GC against their will.
Local girl Sierra completes this trio of close friends. Kevin took revenge by trashing the loft where J. Kevin then went to go meet Colleen in the park where he knew she waiting for JT. Kevin scared her with threats and pushed her down on the bench, but J. Kevin talked Lily into sex to "prove their love, and another night Lily sneaked out and Kevin gave her some sexy lingerie, which Lily uncomfortably refused to wear.
Kevin got mad and told her he wasn't sure this was going to work, but Lily assured him that she wanted to be with him. The next day, Lily skipped school to go to Kevin's all day.
For Colleen and Sierra, that was the final straw, and they told her parents. When Neil showed up at Kevin's, and Lily disappeared down the fire escape. Neil threatened Kevin with arrest since Lily was underage, and told him to never see Lily again. In his ranting at Kevin, he mentioned that Lily's friends told them about Kevin.
As Kevin sat at the bar at Gina's, angrily writing the words "bitch" on a napkin, he overheard that Gina was closing up early. Kevin hid until the place was locked up. When Colleen showed up at Gina's, Kevin lured her into the walk-in refrigerator, and locked the door. He poured a drum of floor cleaner plus alcohol all over the restaurant and started it on fire. Extremely pleased with himself, he went to Marsino's and pretended he had been working there all night when Bobby and Brittany showed up after the Gala.
Kevin leered at Britt as she looked for her sheet music in Bobby's desk, then came onto her. After Britt rebuffed him and walked out, he threatened her and her singing career "going up in smoke.
Police Detective Weber had no reason to hold him, so he let him go. Further investigation found no evidence, even Kevin's computer was wiped clean. Kevin continues to lure young girls on the Internet, while Lily had to confess all to her parents, though luckily not pregnant or HIV-positive, she was diagnosed with Chlamydia.
At least it all brought her close to her parents again and she lost her attitude. After Kevin cornered Colleen in the ruins of Gina's, and scared her once again, JT went to his apartment and beat Kevin up. JT was arrested for assault, and Kevin now had two fathers gunning for him in Brad and Neil.
Kevin showed up at long lost half-brother Michael Baldwin's office expecting legal help. Lily decided to file charges and testify against Kevin after she returned from the remarriage of her parents in Japan, but the police advised there was not enough evidence since Kevin's VD had been cured prior to testing.
Lily met troubled teen Devon, who was belligerent and just hung around watching and resenting the rich kids helping the neighborhood kids fix up the new Market Street Recreation Center. Lily's attempts to befriend him were rebuffed at every turn as Devon did not trust anyone - especially an obviously rich kid.
To get her off his back, he made up answers to her questions, telling her how he went to a school in the rich part of town and was part of a big happy family.
Later when Lily realized he was lying, Devon told her how he'd been shuttled from one group home to another since he was taken from his crack-head mother, and that his father was dead.
He was currently living in a foster home, but was about to be kicked out for his behavior. Just as the bubbly and sweet Lily was finally getting through to Devon, and he started helping out and treating everyone better, he was told by his social worker, Lorena Davis, that there was no group home available so he'd have to be sent to a Level 12 facility which sounded more like jail.
Lily's mother Drucilla got to know the boy and saw herself at that age. Remembering how she had gone down the wrong road until Nathan had rescued her and taught her to read, she wanted to give back by helping Devon in the same way.
So Dru convinced Neil and Ms. Davis to allow them to be temporary foster parents. Devon was blossoming once he knew someone cared, and he and Lily became very close. During this time, Devon told Lily he'd once seen his father only once hanging out in front of a convenience store. Devon became part of the family, learning table manners, reading books, and such. Neil was hesitant, but Dru plotted to make the arrangement permanent, and was lying to Ms.
Davis that Neil was on board with permanent fostering of Devon. When it was discovered that Neil knew nothing about it, Devon was to be sent to a Level 12 facility, but he ran away with Lily instead. Devon was found and Victor Newman, whose probation officer was also Ms. Davis, volunteered to take him until a group home could be found.
Victor and Devon bunked together at the Rec Center in sleeping bags for a few weeks. The day he was to leave, Neil finally gave in and agreed to permanent foster care of Devon. Three years after he was declared dead, Malcolm showed up in Genoa City, very much alive, sporting cornrows and a bad attitude.
Malcolm explained that a family took him in and nursed him back to health, then he ended up having to take care of them. But he had returned mostly to see Nate again. Olivia was resentful that Malcolm didn't make himself known to Nate as soon as possible, sparing him the devastation of his death, and was making Malcolm wait to reveal himself until Nate returned from boarding school at the end of semester.
Until then, Malcolm took a job as a waiter, and was later named Manager at Crimson Lights, and Olivia convinced him to stay in her extra bedroom. Malcolm hadn't forgotten the possibility that Lily might be his daughter, so Dru had a paternity test done. Although Lily knew that Dru and Uncle Malcolm had once been an item and wondered, when it turned out Malcolm really was Lily's father, they decided not to tell her or Neil the truth. Devon's birthday came around, but no one remembered it.
Disappointed, but unwilling to tell anyone but his friend Sierra, he skipped school and headed for the zoo. Later that night when he was discovered missing, Sierra tipped them to check the zoo. Dru, Neil, Lily and Malcolm found a terrified Devon marooned in the lion habitat, eye to eye with a lion! Malcolm climbed down into the pit and used skills apparently learned in Africa to distract the lion while Devon climbed out with the help of Neil, followed by Malcolm.
Lily and Devon brought around the SUV to pick them up, but she lost control when it skidded on the ice and struck Neil. Neil made up with Malcolm, asking him to take care of his family in case he didn't make it through surgery. He relieved guilt from Devon and Lily, and said goodbye to Dru. In the waiting room, Lily blamed Devon, so when Mrs. Davis arrived, he asked be put into a group home. Dru intervened and assured Devon that families were all about love and forgiveness.
Neil needed blood, and Lily wanted to donate, but Malcolm insisted he be the one. Devon helped Lily see that Malcolm needed to give back to his brother to mend the relationship, but Malcolm was really more interested in the possibility that Neil was not Lily's father. Neil came through the surgery fine. Malcolm agreed to become the Jabot Photographer on the condition that Lily become the new Jabot teen model.
Lily fell for Daniel Romalotti like a ton of bricks! Dru fought it at every turn because her nemesis Phyllis Abbott was his mother. But through a tragic turn of events, [see Daniel Romalotti profile] Daniel was charged with vehicular manslaughter in the death of Cassie Newman. Lily couldn't be parted from her new love, so talked Daniel into hiding out in the remote Abbott family playhouse. While the police, his mother, and a vengeful Nick Newman searched for Daniel, Lily was visiting him and bringing him food right under their noses.
Malcolm figured it out, and tried to get Lily to talk Daniel into giving himself up. But instead they ran away together in Lily's car. The fugitives dumped the car in St.
