Biography: Soulcalibur IV(top)"Father, we leave today." Hilde was having an audience with the king in a closed stone chamber at the very top of the castle tower. Since the destruction known as the Evil Seed had swept across the kingdom, her father had been lost in a fog of madness and confined to his tiny, lonely cell. She had never been able to put that woeful event behind her, but weakness was not an option. The survival of the Kingdom of Wolfkrone depended on her now.
Hilde purified herself in preparation to lead her army to battle, and then donned her armor and helm. She thought back to an incident several days earlier: upon coming to the assistance of a troop of mercenaries traveling through Wolfkrone, she had learned that a man called Siegfried was about to enter Ostrheinsburg alone. Hilde found Siegfried and contrived to meet him, thinking they could work together towards a common goal. But the knight would have nothing to do with her; he would take on the cursed city alone.
Hilde took it as a sign; perhaps the dawn her kingdom has prayed for all these years was finally coming to end their long Nightmare. At daybreak, she gave the command for all the forces of Wolfkrone to march. She rode at the head of the army, her thoughts heavy. Would she be able to lead her kingdom to a new dawn?
Biography: Soulcalibur V(top)Under constant thread from Soul Edge's forces in the neighboring Ostrheinsburg, The Kingdom of Wolfkrone terrtered on the brink of destruction. Princess Hilde led her army to victory against the cursed sword, but the battle poisoned the land and robbed it of any decent future. After painful deliberation, Hilde ordered an exodus from her kingdom. As she journeyed from nation to nation, negotiating for land to resettle her people, she also searched for the means to purify Wolfkrone. The war against Soul Edge may have ended, but the battle to restore her homeland continued.
One day she received a message from her sworn friend Siegfried: An army of malfested, organized by an unkown party, intended to lay claim to her befouled kingdom.
Hilde reassembed her army and prepared to fight alongside Siegfried: she would never surrender the land that was her people's birthright. Hilde knew she may not live to see her subjects' safe return to Wolfkrone, but her two children might.
"I am not alone. Behind me stands the brave people of Wolfkrone, and the children who will succeed us!" And so it was that, with hope in her heart, Hilde raised her sword and spear and set to her cause...
