Lela is a minor character in the Jem animated series. She is one of the Starlight Girls.
Lela is the eldest Starlight Girl and the first foster child taken in by the Bentons after Aja and Shana. Kimber liked her since the beginning because she was younger than her.
She is an avid drums practitioner and practices and performs with Ashley, Deirdre and Becky in their own band called Ashley and The Starlights.
Like the rest of the girls, she helps out at Starlight Foundation's functions, such as serving at press conferences, passing out brochures or posting flyers.
