The mysterious young girl whom Hols meets in the ruins of his native village. Like Hols, Hilda is an orphan whose village was destroyed by Grunwald, who made her his sister and gave her immortality by the power of the magical "Medal of Life". She later turns out to be the one who helps him destroy the village that Hols settles down by summoning the rats and turning the people against each other, but Hols keeps his belief in her goodness.
