Species Boo
First appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Lahla is a female Boo that wears cat ears and a bow-tie, and worked at the Pianta Parlor, Don Pianta's casino, during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She is Peeka's sister. Lahla runs the casino's various games. Additionally, she sells items which can be bought with Pianta Tokens. If Mario visits the casino, he can actually slip behind the counter and chat with Lahla. She will then reveal some interesting facts about herself. Lahla is one of the first people Mario helped at the Trouble Center. She simply wanted someone to come play at the casino. Lahla even gave Mario some free Pianta Tokens to allow him to play a few games.
