Gilda (ギルダ, Giruda?) is one of the major characters in The Promised Neverland anime. She 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". 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 season two appearance

Gilda's appearance in the anime.

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.


Gilda is a quiet, gentle, mature, and slightly introverted young girl. She is reliable and often helps around with chores around the House and plays with the younger orphans. She has a caring personality and gets along well with her siblings, especially Emma. 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 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.


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[]

When Emma, Ray, and Norman began to suspect that one of the other children is a spy working for Isabella, they decide to share the secret behind the House, Isabella and the human trafficking with Don and Gilda. Norman and Norman talks to her and Don about the truth about the house but Norman refused to tell that their siblings was eaten by a demons. Gilda knows Emma well enough to know she’d never joke or lie about such things. Norman lies that the kids who left were victims of human trafficking, since the cold reality might just be too much. That night, Emma pretends to sleep and watches Gilda sneak out of the bedroom. What Emma can’t see through the door is that someone I initially believed to be Gilda slips a piece of paper under Isabella’s door with the location of the rope: under Norman’s bed. It must be noted that Norman told Ray that he’d tell Don it was under the bed, not Gilda. After the paper is delivered, Gilda visits Krone’s room, and Emma listens in from behind that door. Things get a little tense in there, with evidence wavering between Gilda being Krone’s informant and not, but in the end, Gilda does what Emma hoped for and refuses to give up any information. Gilda and Don feel left out of most of the private convos between the other three, but Gilda and Emma start observing Mama more closely.

Gilda and Don ultimately both agree that an escape attempt is the only choice. Gilda and her siblings escape from Grace Field House on January 15, 2046.[3]
