Need Help w/ Illia
TLDR: Illia is hostile from my first meeting with her. Help, please.

I'm on my first playthrough of Skyrim and I'm really loving it. One thing that happened that kind of took me out of the game and made me realize I ran into a bug happened with Illia and I really hope someone can help.

I have a save before I enter the tower to meet her the first time, so I've tested many times. After she kills the witch, I hear her start dialog with me but she is already hostile and attacks. Even if I go in with no weapon drawn or equipped.

I knew it was a bug because the first time I entered, I was sneaking. She started the dialog with me and I went through the conversaion just fine. After we were done, I stood up from sneak and she immediately went hostile. I knew that couldn't be right so I reloaded.

Can anyone help with this? I have the Unofficial Skyrim Mod loaded, but I'm very light on mods since it's my first playthrough and I don't want major changes.

During my testing, I even found that if I sneak long enough, she'll lose track of me. I can go through the tower, kill the stuff there, and she even gives me a key if I try a locked door while still in sneak and she didn't detect me. Right after she gives the key, she goes hostile again since she detected me. I can even go to the top where it prompts about the plan. As soon as I leave sneak, she attacks again.

Thank you for your suggestion. I just tried this and several variations of it, and it didn't resolve the issue.

I could have sworn I heard her say "Good day" one of the times she was attacking me too.

Any other thoughts before I give up?

Only thing I can think of is sometimes weird glitchy stuff like that resets if you are away from the cell long enough to let it respawn, so it might be worth making a save, fast travelling to another location, disabling any mods like Realistic Needs and Diseases that would cause problems if you wait for a long period, waiting 31 game days, then return to Darklight Tower. I'm not sure if it respawns or not, but anything that might respawn, will respawn after that time, I believe.
