Hols (ホルス)Hols was saved from a village being destroyed by his grandfather when he was a baby, who fled the burning village in a boat. Hols has since lived in a run down boat-made-house on the river shoreline. Hols has lived a very hard life, since the area is full of dangerous animals such as wolves. It is his savagery, from living such a hard life, that allows him to kill the Pike that a group of grown men could not, and it is his own desperate loneliness through which he can identify with Hilda, and try to help her overcome her own suffering.
Due to their work at Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata are now two of the most acclaimed directors in the world of anime. But even legends have roots. Before Ghibli, these two creators worked on Horus: Prince of the Sun, a revolutionary film that helped anime evolve into an art form.
