Name: Hilda Basileia (baa-zil-ay-yuh)
Weight: 113 lbs
Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
Hilda appears quite driven and headstrong on the outside, but she is very self-conscious and constantly comparing herself to other people. She has a tendency to be envious of others and not think very highly of herself.
Because of her longing for recognition, she often doesn’t assert herself when she has an issue or disagreement with someone for fear that they will turn on her, though she acts strongly on her beliefs through actions. However, around people she truly trusts and loves, she is able to loosen up a bit and speak her mind more.
Hilda is the type of person who is very goal-oriented, but who secretly craves and thrives off of affection and meaningful relationships.
Team: HELM (leader)
Partner: Emilius Striver
Weapon: Two-Edged Cupid
- Hilda’s weapon is a bow whose limbs are formed from Dust energy. The color and type of elemental arrow that can be drawn from the bow are based on the type of Dust inserted into the main chamber.
- The two limbs of the bow also act as blades, allowing Hilda to use it close-ranged as a melee weapon.
Semblance: Mirroring Walls
- Hilda can create transparent barriers that reflect attacks, and projectiles easily bounce off of them. However, they will shatter under too much pressure, such as a direct hit from a close-range weapon.
Hilda prefers to fight long-range using her arrows and keeping a distance from her foes. However, she has no problem fighting up close as well. She is very adept at handling her weapon close-range, performing swift slashes and effective stabs. Sometimes she mixes the two styles, firing arrows in between slashes based on her distance from her foe.
Defensively, Hilda relies on her distance to keep her safe in battle. Even when she fights at close-range, she is always looking for opportunities to create space between her and the foe again. She sometimes blocks attacks with her weapon, usually by spinning it around rapidly in front of her to deflect the foe's moves, but oftentimes, she prefers to dodge instead, due to her desire to stay mobile and move away from the enemy.
Hilda uses her Semblance for her own moves much more than for her foe’s. She will summon up mirrors after firing her bow to reflect arrows back towards foes who may have initially dodged them. She can also set the mirrors up to bounce arrows rapidly between them and create a dangerous battlefield for the enemy. If the foe is not fighting with projectile-based attacks, Hilda usually avoids using her Semblance defensively, as the mirrors cannot handle strong, close-range attacks.
Just like the actual characters from RWBY, all of the characters on Team HELM are based on fictional or mythological figures. Feel free to guess their inspirations!
( Hint: They are all based on villains/antagonistic figures.)
I like your style and your character is very well thought out.
If you are not busy might I request you do one of these for GreenMage, leader of team GRNN?
I assuming you have never heard of him. Just type in "GRNN" and my RWBY cannon should pop right up.
Thanks for your time and please have a wonderful day.
Unfortunately, my life is actually quite busy right now. I'm just starting to get back into art and work on my own things but my schedule is very crunched most weeks! I appreciate the request though! Thanks for the comment Maybe in the future!
(yeah, in hindsight, I guess her weapon is pretty similar to Pit's, though hers doesn't come apart like his does. and hers is like a lightsaber, so it wins XD)
I had so much trouble thinking of a Semblance for her I'm glad you like the idea!
If you need help with creating Semblance, just ask me via a note and I can help you with it... open minds FTW
Hilda's fighting style reminds me of Pit
her name makes me think of Hydras, or Basilisks...Though also of cupid, who wasn't the nicest guy.
Yeah, I thought of that. She's like a much cooler, less annoying version of Pit
Cool ideas, but she isn't Cupid or a hydra or a basilisk (hehe, fan art anyone?)
