Hilo Lim is the main character of the Hilo series. He used to be a robot powered by Empatis, but in All the Pieces fit he got turned into a human and got adopted by the Lim family. He was created by Razorwark, the main antagonist of the series.
Hilo was made with Empatis by Razorwark. He came out and learned who he was, then he destroyed cities. Then I was ready for activation and I (Izzy) came out. She made robots that Razorwark did not like. Razorwark said she would be deactivated like the letters before him. Hilo looked to Izzy and looked sad.
Hilo is a very silly character. He loves cracking jokes such as the Interrupting Cow Joke and he laughs so hard Izzy calls it "The great big boom." Despite this, Hilo has a serious side. He is very protective of his friends, repeatingly trying to prevent them from going on a quest with him in fear of their saftey. Hilo can get very philosphocial at certain times, wondering what it means to be a robot.
Apperance and Outfit
Despite being a robot, Hilo looked a lot like a human. In fact, he resembled a human so closely that D.J and Gina didn't even know he was a robot until he got ripped apart, exposing his wires. Hilo has fair skin and a wide head that is covered in long, shaggy blond 'hair.' He has worn three different outfits during the series:
Silver Underpants: When Hilo fell from the portal in The Boy who Crashed to Earth, he was only wearing silver tighty-whities. It is unknown how he ended up in these, because in a flashback sequence in All The Pieces Fit, while in The Void he was wearing his white jumpsuit.
DJ's Clothes: When Hilo crashed to Earth, D.J gave him some of his clothes (which used to belong to Dexter.) D.J gave him a plain red T-shirt, some blue jeans, and some shoes. Hilo customized the shirt by drawing an H-symbol with yellow marker on it.
Laser genesis: Hilo can make and shoot lasers in battle.
Cyrogenesis: Hilo can make a cold icy beam that will freeze things immeditly.
Flight: Hilo can fly very high and fast.
Electromagnetic pulse emmition: Hilo can emit EMPs to shut down robots.
Bubble making: Hilo can make mysterious glowing bubbles. He can use them to encapsle and move objects, as a sheild, or as a projecticle weapon.
Glass handcuffs: Hilo can make handcuffs that look like panes of glass. He has only done this once with Razorwark in All the Pieces fit
Durability: Hilo is very durable, able to withstand giant lasers and being thrown to the ground.
Reflexes: Hilo has very good reflexes for dodging enemies.
Machine know-how: Since Hilo was a robot, he knows lots about machines and can build them well, like when he constructed Gina's telescope set in only a couple of minutes, and when he built the basement of his mansion. His building abilities are still way behind his sister Izzy, though.
