Glänzende Nova & Frischer Himmel is Hilde's primary weapon in Soulcalibur IV and Soulcalibur VI, and one of her weapons in Soulcalibur V. Glänzende Nova and Frischer Himmel are believed to have been wielded by the very first king of Wolfkrone. Other rumors claim that they are holy weapons tailored to destroy any uprising of evil. The original weapons were lost when the first king passed away, but replicas were created and passed down through the royal bloodline. At the coronation of each new king, the weapons are placed in his hands, and when in times of crisis the realm is threatened, they are given to the kingdom’s mightiest warrior.

They are a flag with a pike on its end and a dagger that appears to be either a misericorde or a horseman's sidearm.

The founding myths of Wolfkrone speak of a great warrior who battled Soul Edge after being given the spirit sword Soul Calibur by its guardian tribe. Much later, that warrior became king of the nation.

Hilde’s particular fighting art had been taught to generations of the Krone family, hereditary rulers of Wolfkrone. Legends claim that it was first developed by the founding king of the realm, According to Hilde’s official Soulcalibur IV biography, the Wolfkrone practitioners of the lance are threatened with extinction.


  • Glänzende Nova and Frischer Himmel were believed to be known as Grenzennova and Frischhimmel, respectively, possibly because of mistranslation. Glänzende Nova translates to, from German, "shining star", while its companion weapon, Frischer Himmel, means "fresh sky". Her fighting style, Große Erbschaft, means "great inheritance."
  • Gläzende Nova & Frischer Himmel (2P) is white.
  • Frischer Himmel was later passed on to Hilde's children.
  • The weapons were modeled after the shape Soul Calibur took when in the possession of the Founder of Wolfkrone many years ago.
