Lillian Worth worked as the headmistress of a Bordello in the Siem Pang Wat in Cambodia during the time of the Khmer Rouge. She was the subject of a search-and-rescue operation led by Colonel Slade Wilson to bring her safely across the border into Thailand. During the operation, all of Slade's men were brutally gunned down by Khmer Rouge soldiers.

It took him two weeks to get Lili through the jungles to Thailand. During that time, the two fell in love and Lili became pregnant with Slade's child. She gave birth to a baby girl named Rose. It would be years before Slade saw Lili again and learn of the existence of his daughter.
