Hilda is a major antagonist in the Super Nintendo videogame Fire Emblem Genealogy of the Holy War. She is also mentioned in the midquel Thracia 776. She is the aunt of Amid/Arthur and Linda/Tine.
Hilda is a middle aged woman with long parted black hair and red lipstick. She wears a long purple gown with long purple gloves, yellow belt, and wears a black and red cloak. Her ingame mugshot appears to have wrinkles, though like several other characters, her artwork appears to make her look younger as she lacks the lines on her face.
Hilda is a abusive, cruel, sadistic, and haughty tyrant. She is abusive towards her sister-in-law Ethina or Tailtiu and her niece Tine or Linda. She enjoys Tailtiu or Ethina's mental sufferage and takes great pride in causing their deaths, later taunting her children about driving their mother to the grave.
Though not a member of the Loptous sect, Hilda fully supports capturing young children to sacrifice to Loptous despite her wishes of her children and husband opposition, seemingly solely out of sadism rather than any religious reasons. Hilda frequently arranged child hunts and sacrifices in the areas she controlled behind her families backs.
A descendant of the Fala noble family, a scheming social climber, Hilda managed to snag Bloom, a member of the Friege noble family and ruler of several districts of the Grannevale empire under Emperor Arvis. With her marriage to Bloom, Hilda was able to become queen of Miletos.
Hilda had two children with Bloom, Ishtar and Ishtore. Hilda tended to manipulate her kids in an attempt to get even more power in the Grannevale empire. When Tailtiu, Bloom's sister, and her daughter, Tine, are found by the Grannevale empire, Hilda takes charge of their imprisonment. Under Hilda, Tailtiu and even the young Tine are subject to horrible torture and abuse, both physical and mental. Eventually, Tailtu eventually dies from Hilda's torture, something which Hilda took great pride in.
As Queen of the Miletos, Hilda took pride in being a tyrant, authorizing the kidnapping of children for ritual sacrificing to Loptous.
- Hilda serves as an archetype and inspiration to a small number of female villains that are depicted as devious and willfully evil conspirators in Fire Emblem series, known collectively as the "Witch" archetype that includes Petrine and Sonia Reed, with Nuibaba (particularly her remake incarnation in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia) having some minor traits from the archetype. After a long absence, the Witch archetype returned in Three Houses with fake Cornelia Arnim.
- Hilda is the first and thus far, the only pure evil character in Fire Emblem franchise to be female.
- Hilda shares the same first name as Hilda from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
- A minor villain in the first generation, Lamia the infernal, looks like a younger version of Hilda: possessing the same hairstyle and face, as well as a love of cruelty. If there is a relation between these two characters, it goes unstated.
