|This article is about a/an villain in Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger.|
Messenger of Dawn Lije (黎明の使徒リジェ Reimei no Shito Rije) is Wicked Life God Dezumozorlya's child-like metatron, responsible for linking the two worlds. She is also a host to Dezumozorlya.
When she and Mizuho went to fight the Evoliens at Dezumozorlya's palace, Mahoro didn't know she was pregnant with her and Asuka's child. Dezumozorlya used his power to show Mahoro an illusion that Asuka has abandoned her for another woman and implanted himself into her baby along with brainwashing her and her brother into serving him. By the time the infant was born, Mahoro had long forgotten Asuka as she placed the baby inside a pod where she matured within a year into the girl named "Lije". However, while Dezumozorlya controlled half of Lije's soul, the other became a semi-separate being of her own, who is a mysterious unnamed girl. The mysterious girl persona occasionally leaves Lije's body to stop the fight between Asuka and Mahoro and remind them of their love. When Lije met the mysterious girl, she momentarily dispersed her other self.
Eventually, unaware that he possessed the other half of Dezumozorlya's being, Lije fell in love with Mikoto Nakadai prior to being force grown into Lijewel. This causes the mysterious girl to be permanently separated from her other self and attempts to use Mai Hakua to maintain her existence before eventually befriending her. But when the truth that she and Mikoto must die so a fully awakened Dezumozorlya can become whole again, Lijewel helps the Abaranger convince Mikoto of the truth allowing him to run. She then finds herself being possessed by Dezumozorlya and later he transforms her body into Dezumolijewel to fight the Abarangers before Abare Killer joins them in overpowering Dezumolijewel by combining the power of their Dino Guts.
Taking advantage of Dezumozorlya's moment of weakness, the mysterious girl appears and enters Lijewel to purge the entity. With her and the mysterious girl completely merged back into one, Lijewel regresses back into Lije and then into her original infant form. The infant, is soon named after Mikoto.
During the Final Episode, a couple that resembles Lijewel and Mikoto and a family that resembles Asuka, Mahoro, and Lije entered the Dino Curry much to the Abaranger's surprise.
Mikoto possessed Lije/Lijewel's ability to travel to between Earth and Dino-Earth that enabled her father to aid their friends when needed during the events of Dekaranger Vs. Abaranger, Boukenger Vs. Super Sentai, and the Legend War.

As Dezumolijewel her power is increased even further. She was able to fire powerful electrical attacks and withstand most of the Abaranger's power. After she regressed back to infant she lost most of her abilities when Dezumozorlya was purged from her body but her transportation ability still remains to allow Asuka to come to Earth and fight along with the others when necessary.
