- “Hey, how else was I supposed to sustain my antique coin hobby? With a JOB??”
- ―Ilana, Groundhog Daze
Ilana is a brown-furred shrew with thick dark hair pinned up in a bun. She wears a white top and a purple vest with a silver name tag. Her eyes are green.
Role in the Game
After talking to Marie, Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, who was hiding from Marie, talk to Ilana about why was she at Phil's pawn shop. Sarcastically, Ilana tells them she was looking to buy/pawn something and dismisses it as a dumb question. Nick, annoyed by her unfriendliness, wishes he was talking to Detective Oates instead.
Later, near the counter of the pawn shop, Judy and Nick find some stained paper. After wiping it off, it's revealed to be guitar music for a song called "Lament of a Broken Temp". Judy finds it catchy but can't read sheet music, so they send it to Officer Clawhauser in the lab to analyze. Clawhauser tells them that the sheet totally rocks. Nick realizes that Ilana is a temp and the song is about a temp. Judy asks Ilana if the sheet is hers, and Ilana sassily says "What if it is?". She says the only upside of being a broke temp is it gives her lots of depressing material to write songs about. She also says it's better than writing songs about her interest in antique coins and her bad allergies, because no one wants to hear those. Nick says they're very interested.
With the pieces fallen into place, the suspect has short fur, short, bad allergies, an interest in antique coins, and plays guitar, Judy and Nick arrest Ilana for the repeated robberies of Phil's pawn shop. Ilana admits that she knew she did it once too much. She says that when she found out that Phil is afraid of his own shadow, she bought a black bodysuit and made sure he saw his "shadow" several times a day. When he got scared and fainted, Ilana robbed the store. Ilana asks how else was she supposed to sustain her antique coin hobby other than a job. Nick knows that would be scary.
- Ilana and Alice share the same character model.
- Ilana's happy/idle model is never used for when she speaks.
