–Milla to Raz about his fear of water.

Camilla "Milla" Vodello is a famous Brazilian Psychonaut agent, who is partnered with Sasha Nein. She is also part of the staff at Whispering Rock. She is known as the Mental Minx, and is known for her Levitation prowess and psychedelic 1960's mod style and fashion sense. She is very laid-back and enjoys partying and dancing. Being that she is the only female staff member at Whispering Rock, she is the most motherly, very big on rules and keeping her kids safe at all costs.

Appearance

Milla has brown hair, light brown skin, large eyelashes, and green eyes. Milla wears a red dress with circles patterns, white boots, white gloves, and large earrings in Psychonauts and in Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin.

In Psychonauts 2, she wears a layered outfit composed of a striped pink and yellow skirt with a blue blouse. She additionally wears pink and blue hoop earrings and blue boots decorated with pink circle patterns.

Background

The Mental Minx. International secret agent. Brazilian levitation instructor. Party girl. Wherever Milla goes, there seems to be an upbeat soundtrack. She loves working with children and worries about their safety. She teaches them how to use their thoughts to fly, float, and to keep bouncing.

–Character blurb from the original Psychonauts website.

Before becoming a Psychonaut, Milla took care of children at an orphanage. One night after she got back from grocery shopping, the orphanage was on fire (the cause of which remains unexplained) and all the children perished in the flames. Due to her psychic powers, Milla heard them screaming to her for help as they burned to death, scarring her deeply. Milla was deeply traumatized and blamed herself for the deaths, but she tries her best not to let the incident take over her mind and remain a positive person.

Personality

Milla has a soft and caring demeanor. She is a mother figure at Whispering Rock, and always does her best to keep the campers safe. This is shown by how she barricaded off Lake Oblongata so the children wouldn't be able to reach Thorney Towers. She is also the one who called Raz's father to pick him up from camp. She is protective of Raz and Lili and does her best to keep them safe. She is very kind toward her colleagues and even her enemies.

Story

Psychonauts

Milla Vodello is first seen in the intro cinematic. She appears as one of the camp counselors in Whispering Rock Summer Camp.

After Raz finishes Sasha's Shooting Gallery, Sasha and Milla will disappear on "Official psychonauts business". If Raz visits Milla's Mind at this point, he will ask her: "Agent Vodello? Where are you?" To which Milla will reply that she was sitting at the docks when suddenly everything went black. She also asks Raz to give her body a shake when he finds her.

The player is allowed to go through the level normally, collecting any Figments, Vaults and Mental cobwebs left.

Later in the game, Raz will discover Milla, Sasha and Lili locked at the top of Thorney Tower. Sasha and Milla's brains have been stolen by Dr. Loboto and Raz needs to get them back and progress with the story.

Psychonauts: In the Rhombus of Ruin

Directly after the ending of Psychonauts, Milla is seen riding on the jet heading to the Rhombus Of Ruin. After crashing and landing in the Rhombus, Milla is thrown into a hallucination due to the Psylirium deposit beneath her. Her hallucination consists of her trying to save children from a speeding train. Raz frees her from her hallucination by playing a radio song she likes.

Get down here!
Which do you like better--spinach or onion dip?
