Early life

Mila at a younger age
Mila was born in Russia. She grew up with her father and mother, both young immigrants. She had a very difficult relation with her parents, because they were highly religious and Mila would rather play outside then go to church. At the age of 6 they send her to America because they wanted her to get a good education to solve their money problems. Mila lived with a host-family in a Seattle suburb until she was sent to SJBS where she met Pierre, another foreign student. She subsequently also met Payton and math class, and Katie in her AP science classes.

Season oneEdit

In season one we meet Mila for the first time when she is a good friend to Payton and Claire Silverstone. She supports them with the new strange boys that show interest in them, but at the same time she is interested in them too. Where do they come from and why are they here? She doesn't want her friends to get hurt, so she does some research. None of it really mattering. But when Payton gets involved with Jason and Claire with Seth she is delighted. She couldn't find anything strange on them, unless you count the fact that they don't have any social media, so she blessed their relationships.

At the end of Junior year, Mila attends prom with Mike, who she has grown closer to in the past few weeks. After prom, her life gets shaken up when Claire ends up in a coma after an attack. Mila and Mike get informed about witches, magic and vampires and from that point on Mila's life is forever changed.

Season TwoEdit

In the summer Mila gets bitten by, then an unknown vampire, Liam Miller, she suffers from severe nightmares. When she finds out he is actually Claire and Payton's half-brother she doesn't want anything to do with him.

. When Claire and Payton decide that they want him in their lifes, Mila is hurt and mad. She doesn't understand why they would pick someone they don't know over her and their relationship gets a little harder. With Payton moving to Portland and Claire being constantly with Seth or Liam, Mila looses touch with her friends. During senior year, she decides to emerge herself in extracuricular activities and her relationship with Mike, while she tries to discover herself. During that journey, she ends up sleeping with Pierre Ambroise on his visit.

At the end of Senior Year Mila graduates, and she restores her friendship with Payton and Claire when she realises why they chose to accept Liam, because he is their family after all. She also reunites with Mike, and the two of them go to Europe together for the summer.

In the late summer they return to the USA so Mike can look at colleges. Mila meets up with Payton but then she suddenly dissapears, and Payton thinks she has decided to break contact so it would be harder when she permanently returns to Italy. In reality, Mila is kidnapped by Liam.

Season ThreeEdit

Mila spends a total of 4 months being held in a house by Liam. Although he seems not to have any intend of hurting her, she is not allowed to go outside and he keeps a very close eye on her. He also feeds off of her repeatedly, causing her to get very low blood pressure and a general bad health condition. That winter, the Silverstones find out and they come to save Mila. After the traumatizing experience, Mila is very wary of any human contact. She leaves the Dawson house unannounced, only leaving behind a note saying she can no longer stay because all of them remind her of the verbal abuse from the past few months. She moves back to Italy after that. For Mila's sake, Claire and Payton claim to be done with Liam forever.

Season FourEdit

Season SixEdit

Mila returns to Waterfall Creek in Season Six after she hears about Mike's mom. She soon signs on to work with Claire at the store. She agrees with Mike on her staying over at the appartment, but shortly after moving in there she gets told by Alyssa that she will become roommates with Jade, Alyssa's sister, and Pierre, Mila's former friend. This is when Mila finds out about Jade's secret identity, and Pierre's true name when he reveals to her he is a wizard.

Mila then decides she doesn't want anymore lies, and she pushes Pierre to tell Payton and Claire about who he is at the 4th of July party which they attend as a couple to get Pierre into the door. Mila is also shown to work out a lot and when Jade leaves back to the Anconi she encourages Pierre to train with her to distract him.

When Mike returns home, Mila welcomes him home and cooks for the three of them. They note at the awkwardness the three of them are in. During the same dinner, Mike asks Mila about Liam to which she admits seeing him around is painful for her, but she has moved on. Mike later discovers medication for panic attacks in Mila's stuff as he is moving his stuff back into the bathroom.

Mike and Mila talk about this, and he also apologises for accidentally snooping in her stuff. Mila forgives him, and she offers to pay part of the rent, which Mike is due to Alyssa. The following day she goes and drops off the money at the Miller Motel, where she bumps into Emilia.

Mila and Emilia get talking and Mila grows an admiration for her when Emilia recalls about feminism back when she was still human. They then discover they also share their sexuality, and the two talk untill Alyssa walks in and Mila hands off the money. Alyssa then talks to Mila in private, saying Jade will be sent back to Waterfall Creek soon, on a kill mission this time. Mila informs Pierre of this, and she worries of her friends being unprepared for an attack from the Anconi. The next morning Mila and Mike find a note from Pierre, stating he has gone to the Anconi to offer himself as a double agent in hopes of staliling the kill mission.

When Jade and Pierre make it back and go into hiding being presumed dead, Mila struggles being on top of their relationship and she frequently goes out clubbing. There she slowly gets used to the idea of Liam no longer being a threat. Shortly after she finds out what happened with Liam when he kidnapped her, she spends an afternoon distracting herself with old photo albums. In one of them, she finds a photo of her and Katie. Jade then reveals she knows the girl in the picture, and even explains how Katie is alive and at The Anconi. Following the reveal of this shocking news, Jade explains Katie has been part of her personal entourage and she is protected by the vampires there because she does valueable work. Jade then explains how Alyssa brought Katie to Jade, to which Mila reacts in shock, because she knows Alyssa was aware of what Katie meant to her. Mila then goes to confront Alyssa about keeping Katie a secret from her, but she just ends up crying after processing the fact that a person she thought was missing was now revealed to still be alive. Jade then calls in a favor of Elliot, one of her trustees in the Anconi, to transport Katie to Waterfall Creek. Mila and Katie are then reunited at the motel near the end of the season.

Season 7Edit

When Mila tells him about her plans to adopt her niece and nephew, Liam is curious as to why Mila feels so guilty towards them and her sister. He later finds papers from the Romanov family, where Mila's name is filled in as Milena Romanov. When Liam approaches the situation to her, Mila admits she is from Russian descent, and apologizes in her native language. Liam replies in Russian, saying he doesn't care where she came from, only where she's going.

They buy a house together after a while and adopt Mila's niece and nephew, after Mila finds out about their terrible fate. They also concieve their own daughter a few years later on their weddingnight.


Mila is very kind, and values her friends and friendship in general. She has a reputation of being very strong-willed and determined. Some people unrightfully describe her as a bitch and a boyfriend-stealer, but she's none of those.
