Could Ilia be the winter maiden? It seems they are setting her up for something big and this could be it, because honestly a maiden Faunus would be interesting. However, as for proof, there was a slight hint towards it the trailer with her and Blake, she said she was originally from Atlas the winter content and when she heard that her parents died she turned blue and winter is portrayed as with the colors of either white or blue. It's just a thought.
