During the attack on Umbra, Captain Adama crashes into the Thorn forest and is saved by a young orphan boy. It is after this event that Adama names the boy "Starbuck," as the amnesiac boy's identity could not be ascertained (Battlestar Galactica: Starbuck 1).
Yahrens following her death on Caprica, Adama is continually plagued with fantastic dreams of Ila's last moments, which include his attempt to intervene in her death, only to beg for death himself when he fails to stop it (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #1).
In the Marvel comic adaptation, she is named Ilya and is killed during the Cylon attack (Battlestar Galactica).
During Serena's funeral, he recalls how much Serena reminds him of Ilya (The Memory Machine). Later, while inside the memory inducer, Adama relives a memory of a picnic he has with Ilya before Eurayle manages to help free Adama from the machine (The Trap!).
