Hil grew up in Skyrim, and showed magic skills even back then. He fled and became a priest when he grew older to avoid serving in the Imperial Legion. Because of this, there are many who see him as a coward.
Hil spends most of his time inside the temple, devoted to his job and to Arkay. He can sometimes be found standing by the lake outside. He is available for training during the day, when he is not busy praying.
- If he is killed, he is replaced by Esbern, but only if Knights of the Nine is installed.
- When Fighter's Stronghold is installed, his training schedule alters slightly.
