To be sure, out lives won't change overnight. and it'll take effort to bridge the gulf between highborn and lowborn, but I'm confident it'll all work out in the end.
—Hilda Ware

Hilda Ware, also known as Hilda the Mongrel is a non-playable character from Final Fantasy XIV, first appears in Heavensward.



Hilda is a half Elezen half Hyur, and as a result has physical traits from both races. Superficially she is almost indistinguishable from a Hyur Midlander, the only obvious sign of her Elezen heritage being her pointed ears. Beyond this her most distinguishing traits are her jet black hair and ruby red eyes, the former inherited from her father and the latter her mother.

She wears a black and brown leather jacket, with matching thigh high boots, and a red scarf around her neck.


Quick-thinking, sharp-tongued and sharp-witted, Hilda is a leader to the disenfranchised lowborn. Though she may appear gruff and resentful of the High Houses, Hilda possess a formidable spirit and an unwavering sense of justice. Despite her low opinion of the High Houses and the church, Hilda is nonetheless loyal to her home and countrymen. In this loyalty, she formed a public watch dedicated to defending the common man.

Though somewhat skeptical of a new future where lowborn and highborn alike stand side by side, Hilda was nonetheless persuaded into joining Aymeric de Borel's reforms of Ishgard, becoming integral to civilian protection.


Early Life Edit

Hilda is the bastard daughter of a highborn Elezen and a Hyuran maid. Her father was unhappy of her conception and refused to acknowledge her existence to the day he died. Her mother supported her and never spoke ill of her father, because of her example, Hilda blossomed into a strong young lady with an unwavering sense of justice.[1]
