    Hilda was born to Harald Sigurdsson and Inga Bjornsdottir, in a poor farmstead set upon the border of the frozen wastes of Norland. Her childhood was a simple one, and rather uneventful. She spent the majority of her time alongside her sisters and mother, while her father and brothers struggled to pull in their meager harvests. From her mother, Hilda learned to weave and cook. Her father, on the other hand, regaled her with tales of the Allfather and the great flaming tree in the center of Morsgrad. As well, he taught her to fish in the ice, and to carve wood, amongst other things. Aside from these teachings passed onto her by her parents, she lacked any education. Neither knew to read or write, and thus, Hilda remained illiterate. She grew rather comfortable in this simple life, preferring to stay isolated on her family's tiny sliver of land, while her brothers set off for adventure upon coming of age. As her parents grew old, however, they proved increasingly unable to sustain themselves. Her father was no longer able to tend the fields alone, and Hilda, with her frail stature could not take his place. Thus, she set off to the capital, hoping to find employment to provide for her family.
