This article is about the Manga version of Gilda. For alternate pages referred to by this name, please click any of the icons above.

Gilda (ギルダ, Giruda?) is a ten-year-old orphan who formerly resided at Grace Field House Plant 3 as one of the many foster children of Isabella. Due to her age, Gilda is considered to be one of the house's "high quality goods".[5] A quiet but firm girl, she is brought into the escape plan alongside Don after the truth of the orphanage is revealed.

After successfully escaping Grace Field alongside fourteen other orphans, Gilda now seeks to find William Minerva, whom she and her team believe can grant them the liberty to live a safe and peaceful life away from the demons.


Gilda was born at Grace Field on May 13, 2035 and sent to Plantation 3 a year later in 2036, growing up along with several other children under the parental care of Isabella. Gilda is brought into the escape plan alongside Don after Emma, Ray and Norman falsely told them Isabella had been selling their siblings to "bad people" and that ultimately their siblings may still be alive. Don and Gilda later discover the trio had been lying to them after snooping around the secret room, which forced the trio to come clean. Don and Gilda were enraged and shocked by the truth of the orphanage, but agreed to help the trio in any way they can. Over the next few months, Gilda helped to prepare for the escape by training the younger children and creating rope from bed sheets in order to cross the cliff which surrounds the Grace Field complex. Gilda successfully escaped the house along with the rest of her siblings who were over the age of five.


Gilda is a young girl of average height with fair skin. She wears a big pair of circular-lensed glasses over her grey eyes. She has short, straight olive drab hair styled into a Chinese bob. She wears the standard Grace Field uniform- a plain white long sleeved button-up shirt and a white skirt along with brown boots. Her identification number, "65194", can be seen on the left side of her neck.

In 2047, Gilda stopped wearing the standard Grace Field uniform, instead adopting a long black skirt and a long sleeved white shirt with the same brown boots she wore at Grace Field House. Now at the age of twelve, Gilda has grown taller and has grown her hair out. She is often seen wearing her hair tied into a simple bun in the back with two locks of hair framing her face.


Gilda is a quiet, gentle, mature, and slightly introverted young girl. She is reliable, analyzes situations carefully, and often helps around with chores around the House and plays with the younger orphans.[6] Like the rest of her siblings, she enjoys playing games such as tag and hide-and-seek. Gilda also has an eye for fashion and beauty and, along with Anna, dreams of being able to wear all kinds of different clothes. Additionally, Gilda is very intelligent and gets good test scores. She also enjoys sewing and reading. Gilda has a caring personality and gets along well with her siblings, especially Emma. She cares deeply for her family and friends and gets emotional whenever someone is hurt or in danger. Her consideration is further shown when she expressed concern for the other cattle children in the other plantations prior to their escape. She is also shown to intuitive, as she knew that Emma was hiding something during the planning of the escape. While she comes off as more docile, soft-spoken and timid compared to Emma, she shows surprising displays of nerve when she and her friend's safety is in danger, such as when she lies to Krone to obscure what she's learned about the orphanage. She is also shown to be determined and brave, as she refuses to back off in their escape plan even after hearing that it could kill them.

Gilda is also shown to be determined and stubborn in her choices, as she threatens Yugo that she will blow up the shelter if he returns with neither of them alive from their journey to Goldy Pond. Gilda is also hard working, responsible and diligent as she assumes a leader/maternal role to the group when when Emma and Ray are away, by taking on the responsibility of cooking, cleaning, helping out with the chores, taking care of the younger children, and making sure everyone is safe. She's very patient and understanding, but the risks Emma continues to put herself in annoys Gilda and she can be quite scary when confronting Emma about this.


Introduction Arc[]

Gilda is first seen when Mama calls all the older children to help her with chores around the house. While cleaning, she takes Don and goes to another room. The next day, a child runs to her and asks where Emma is. She says, she doesn't know and makes a sad face. Later on, she and Emma go to bathe and dress the toddler since they are the only two allowed to. While putting them to sleep, she looks at Emma and tells her she's really good with babies and that she could tell Carol already loves her. Gilda then approaches Emma to ask her about "That Night", but is interrupted when Emma starts checking Carol. She then asks if Carol had bug bite behind their ear

Gilda, along with Don is summoned by Norman to the library. In there, Emma and Norman tell them that Conny has been kidnapped and sold, to which she easily believes and starts crying. Later on, she is seen talking with Emma and sleeps on her bed. When Emma had fallen asleep, she got out of the room and went ahead to meet Sister Krone secretly. Emma, waking up, on the other hand, decides to follow them and listens to their conversation from the other side of the door. Meanwhile, Gilda tells Sister Krone that she has nothing troubling her, to which Sister Krone replies that Emma had told her everything. Gilda having thought that Sister Krone had seen through her, panics. But having realized that she might have been lying, she tells Sister Krone that she has nothing troubling her at all. Gilda leaves but right before she goes out, Sister Krone whispers something in her ear. Going out of the room, she sees Emma and tries to explain what happened but was surprised when Emma hugs her. She then thinks about what Sister Krone had whispered to her, that, if ever she finds out that Emma is lying to her, Gilda should just tell her about it.

Jailbreak Arc[]

Gilda and her siblings escape from Grace Field House Plant 3 on January 15, 2046.[7]

Promised Forest Arc[]

After escaping Grace Field with her siblings, Gilda and the others started looking for location B06-32 with some help from two demons; Mujika and Sonju, whom they learned many things from. They later found out it is a hidden shelter in the wasteland. She begins living there for about two years and meets Mister.[8]

Search For Minerva Arc[]

Gilda and Don are entrusted to take of the younger children while Emma, Ray, and Yugo depart on their trip to Goldy Pond. Gilda expresses her worry towards them several times, and even threatens Yugo that she would blow up the shelter if he does not bring Ray and Emma back alive. While Emma, Ray, and Yugo are away, Gilda begins to take on more of a leader and mother role around the Shelter, helping out with the chores, cooking, cleaning, taking care of the younger children, and making sure everyone is safe. Chris even starts to call her "mom".

Along with her siblings, Gilda was crying tears out of joy after Emma woke up from her coma.[9]

Cuvitidala Arc[]

As more than a year has passed, Gilda, along with Don, Ray, Emma, Violet, and Zack infiltrated into a demon village in disguise after their success in finding the Golden Waters and the temple as they walked through the village to the direction of Shelter B06-32. They soon returned to the shelter and reunited with Mister, Lucas and the others.[10]

Along with his family, Gilda escapes the Shelter B06-32 after it was raided by Andrew and his crew, and later and mourns Lucas, Mister, and the other children who lost their lives in the attack.

Upon arriving at the Paradise Hideout and meeting Norman, Gilda was seen to be overjoyed. She later gets a mission by Norman to find Mujika and Sonju again along with Don, but both of them are suspicious of his true intents. They end up departing on a trip to find them along with Hayato and Ayshe as their escorts.

King of Paradise Arc[]

Seven Walls Arc[]

Imperial Capital Battle Arc[]

Return to Grace Field Arc[]

Human World Arc[]

Upon arriving in the Human World, Gilda is seen to be visibly worried and shocked about Emma's disappearance. Gilda, along with the other children, agrees to search for Emma so they can reunite with her again.[11] Over the next two years spent in the Human World, Gilda began attending school. During spring 2049, she finally reunites with Emma again and cries tears of joy, even though she lost her memories.[12] In the special epilogue chapter, Dreams Come True, Gilda lived out her dream of wearing all kinds of different clothes.[13]

Skills and Abilities[]




Out of all the orphans, Emma is the closest to Gilda. Despite Gilda's teamwork morals and reserved personality and Emma more cavalier attitude, the two see each other as close friends regardless. Gilda acts as a motherly/sisterly figure towards Emma and deeply cares for her well-being; when Emma risked her life to save the orphans, Gilda pinpointed on her recklessness and scolded the latter.

Norman and Ray[]

She sees Norman and Ray as brotherly figures and cares for them greatly. Gilda holds respect for them and their choices and is confident in both of their abilities.


Due to being the same age and having grown up together, Don and Gilda are very good friends. Gilda and Don were recruited together by Emma, Norman, and Ray to aid them in their investigation about the orphanage, the world outside, and how to escape. They are proven to get along and work well with one another even better after they worked together in the escape plan. They also care about each other and are often seen by one another's side. Don trust Gilda greatly and is able to confide his fears and hopes with her. Likewise, Gilda is able to calm him down when he is angry or sad and comforts him whenever this happens, as shown when they both find out the truth about Conny and their other siblings that got shipped out.



At first, Yugo hated Gilda and the rest of her siblings as he saw them as reflections of his deceased friends. However, after reuniting with Lucas and returning from Goldy Pond, Yugo had a change of heart and became a mentor and father-figure to Gilda and her siblings and ultimately sacrificed his life to save them during the Shelter raid.
