She relates to the world unlike anyone else. And she's now "infected" with the memories of not only Fred, but those who loved her. A creature with no previous frame of reference for emotions, let alone guilt.

Double Dutchess wrote:What fascinates me most about Illyria is her utter displacement. She is from another time, another race, stuck in a world of humans in a body that's not hers and robbed of much of her powers... She came to this world expecting to be worshipped, but the raw reality was much different. Then she lost the only person who was really important to her. How does she cope with all that? She must be incredibly lonely, and I think that's the main reason she sticks around the Angel crew. She has no connection to anything or anyone else. I'd like to know more about what is going on in her head. That's what I missed in Only Human, which was strictly from Gunn's POV. I hope that in the upcoming Illyria mini-series we will get (more than) a glimpse of the "inner Illyria".
