Nothing is known about Hilde's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
At some point in the apocalypse, Hilde and Miles discovered the Hilltop on one of their anniversaries after fighting walkers in the woods. Over the years, they become trusted members of the community, with Hilde being known for making Hiltop's signature coins.
While preparing to head towards the fair on their anniversary along with Casper and Martin, Hilde shows her husband a box of her wooden "H" coins she will use to trade for a gift. On their way, they are ambushed by Alpha and are killed. Alpha then steals Hilde's scalp and clothes, disguising herself as "Debra" to infiltrate the fair.
- Killed By
Hilde is ambushed in the woods by Alpha and is killed. She is then scalped and has her clothes stolen by Alpha.
This list shows the victims Hilde has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies
- Alpha killing Hilde and using her scalp and clothes as a disguise is ironic, as her actress, Caroline Duncan, works as a costume and wardrobe designer for film and television.
- It's possible she reanimated as when Ozzy directed the rest of the group to the location of the ambush, she was no longer there.
