Before Haven: Sole daughter of an Hawaiian couple, Leilani was the name chosen by her mother, a woman she never met, as she died during birth. That was one of several changes in Leilani's father life that led him to decide to move to Boston, where Leilani lived all her life.
Not a particular bright student, Leilani still managed to carry on her studies along with a regular childhood and adolescence without ever failing an year. In fact, she did (barely) managed to get the necessary grades to enroll in dental school, and, by the end of 2018 school year, she graduated from it.
Now qualified to practice dentistry and start "adult life", Leilani has everything needed to do so, but decided to, before giving that next step into her life, enjoy the rest of the summer and engage on a road trip. Not that it took her far...
Arrival in Haven: Leilani didn't remember stopping in Haven - so close to Boston, but she didn't remember leaving Boston either... or much of anything else. Afflicted with an amnesia that seems to have affected her and everyone else, she didn't even know she didn't belong in the town. After recovering her memory, she decided to stay in Haven a bit longer - seeking for answers about what the hell happened to her and all the others in this strange town.
