Replaced the quote with a more descriptive one from Planescape Torment. The "Planescape" quote was removed without any explanation in 2012, although I'll put both on this page's Quotes sub-page for reference, at least..
->'''''"BURN WITH ME!"''''' -->-- '''Torajii''', ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''42''

->'''''"BURN WITH ME!"''''' -->-- '''Torajii''', ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''42'' ->''"Look into those flames, supplicant! Raise your head, look! Is that what you wish to hold, supplicant? Is the shaping of flames what stirs your heart? Know that flames can burn, and if you would learn their power, you must suffer their touch."'' --> -- '''Ignus's teacher''', ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''

Ultimately, she is able to embrace it and, in the second film, has greater control and is in a relationship with the luckily fireproof Hellboy. Oddly, Hellboy has the fiery, impulsive, and chaotic personality, while Liz is comparatively stable and reserved.
