Emilia is one of the main protagonists of the Candy Series and a member of Candy JEM. She is regarded as one of Sacred Hearts Primary School's "princesses". She used to be very vain who looked down on the less wealthy along with Sofia, Zara and Qistina before becoming close friends with Joni and Mia.
Emilia was an obese girl in kindergarten. She had no other friends except for Robert, another obese schoolmate. They were often bullied by their schoolmates because of their obesity.
Emilia liked to eat sugary and unhealthy food while she was little which caused her obesity. Because of the constant bullying, she started eating less and developed a fear of sugary things as she thought that eating sugar would instantly make her fat.
She has now overcome her phobia and is able to eat healthily with the help of her friends after the events of Healthy Pretty Girls.
Emilia bears a striking resemblance to her mother. She has greyish mauve bobbed hair and teal eyes. In covers, her hair is coloured grayish mauve while her eyes are blue. Like the rest of the characters, her outfit changes throughout the comics regularly.
