Hilmes (ヒルメス) is the main antagonist of The Heroic Legend of Arslan and a playable character in Arslan: The Warriors of Legend.

He is the lost prince of the Pars kingdom, and a blood heir to the throne. Since his face may prematurely reveal his identity, he covers it with a mask which led to his popular pseudonym "Lord Silvermask" (銀仮面卿). His main goal is to obliterate Andragoras's influence and reclaim the kingdom for himself. To accomplish this, he feigns loyalty to their rival kingdom, Lusitania, and manipulates or conquers any obstacle in his path.

PersonalityEdit

A cruel and ambitious master of war, Hilmes has no qualms slaying those who stand in his way. He takes pride in his heritage as the rightful ruler of Pars, focusing on it to the point of obsessiveness. He believes his own conduct to be superior to Andragoras's tyranny, not realizing that he can be just as ruthless as his named enemy. Any implications of Arslan being a better king than him confuses and infuriates him.

While often known to be merciless, Hilmes is partial towards any who know and appreciate his true identity. He rewards their devotion to him with reserved kindness and trust. Hilmes's coldness breaks before his dear childhood friend, Elena; he cannot deceive her and sincerely wishes for her safety. Thinking that he has no right to face her until he is king, he is ashamed to be in her company.

During his father's assassination, half of Hilmes's face was horribly scarred by a raging fire. The fire traumatized him and caused him to become pyrophobic. Even the slightest spark causes him to break out into a sweat.
