Lily Bobtail is one of the three main protagonists in the Peter Rabbit (TV Series). She is Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny's quick witted best friend and travel companion who always carries many useful objects in her dress pocket, always has a pet ladybug named "Florence" and always claims to know a thing or two "for a fact". She is also Peter's potential love interest. Unlike Peter and Benjamin who were originally created by Beatrix Potter, Lily is a newcomer who was created by the production team for the series.
This practical, quirky bunny is most at home following her passion of reading and finding stuff out. Her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and an innate curiosity leads her to be more methodical, cautious, and logical in her approach to adventures than the impulsive rascal Peter. Her logical approach and patient attention to detail can help her friends see something vital others might have missed.
Lily's personality is nothing short of a book smart scientist, nerd and detective. The smart girl, she is the intellectual brains of the group who solves to learn, and is logical. This is supported by the fact that she sticks to science, evidence and facts from books rather than use her senses impulsively and rashly like Peter, who despite being adventurous, selfless and brave like her, is a street smart but mischievous rascal.
Lily also has a cool headed detective mind, as she uses her magnifying glass closely and carefully looking for and examining clues while going exploring and detective hunting having a much more scientific approach. She rants and rambles about scientific facts, much to the annoyance and boredom of Peter in addition to ranting about previous events (such as being chased by Mr. Tod) to other protagonists. She also knows certain tips and tricks by the book to liberate from danger. For example, she knows how to unlock locks (especially old rusty steel padlocks) with her hair pin (a bobby pin), tie and untie knots, and more.
In addition to being book smart and scientific, Lily is also very friendly, gentle, kind, welcoming, well mannered, compassionate, and attractive. She truly, romantically, sympathetically and affectionately cares about Peter and gets along with him very well, although the two of them are very shy about their love affair.
Lily is very book smart rabbit, due to her passion for reading books, and has a thirst for knowledge, and curiosity. She is very adventurous, brave, kind, caring and loyal just like Peter but pays attention to details that others miss, and always is prepare for whatever is to come Lily her way in her "just in case pocket". In the first episode Lily said that she had a photographic memory, which has also helped the three on adventures.
Lily is an extremely cute and adorable light gray, and white bunny of the light-gray variety with sweet innocent blue eyes, and is always wearing a pink and red dress that has her "Just in case pocket" which is lighter pink with a pink flower on it. Over her dress she has a pink sweater with purple flower buttons on the right side of her dress. Over her head she has a pink flower headband on.
