Gilda is a minor pre-war character in Fallout: Equestria.
Gilda was a close childhood friend of Rainbow Dash during her youth, having been a co-member of the Junior Speedsters with her in flight school. Rainbow Dash would occasionally ask to perform the Junior Speedster's chant with her even years later, which Gilda seemed to find embarrassing but was willing to do it for her friend. The two would later separate, but would be reunited temporarily in Rainbow Dash's young adulthood, only to fall further apart after Gilda mistreats Rainbow Dash's other friends.
During the War
Gilda's activities during the war are unknown, though it is known that sometime during this time, she became a mercenary. It is also unknown whether she kept in touch with Rainbow Dash, who had by this time become the director of the Ministry of Awesome.
Soon after the end of the Great War, Gilda was hired by the remnants of the pegasus government to hunt down and assassinate Rainbow Dash, who had abandoned the pegasi during their secession from Equestria. Prior to the fight, the two recited the Junior Speedsters Chant for old time's sake at Rainbow Dash's request. While the overall outcome of the fight is lost to time, it is known that Rainbow Dash escaped and returned to the Ministry of Awesome in order to prepare the final Ministry Mare's memory orbs at Pinkie Pie's request.
Gilda's ultimate fate remains unknown, as is the location of her remains; it is likely that Rainbow Dash either slew Gilda, escaped without killing Gilda, or defeated Gilda and spared her.
Appearances in other Stories
|Gilda in Fallout: Equestria - The Ditzy Doo Chronicles|
Gilda appears, initially unnamed, living in the ghoul town of Necropolis. She is a ghoul who has had her weapons and armor fused to her flesh by Pink Cloud exposure in Canterlot.
The circumstances of her ghoulification are not directly revealed. However, the original story establishes that Rainbow Dash's last known location was in Canterlot and that Gilda had tracked her there but was initially unwilling to enter due to the Cloud. Gilda's dialogue suggests that she was never able to find Rainbow Dash, implying that she became a ghoul while searching the ruins for her former friend.
She lives in Necropolis but tends to fly off and fight wasteland creatures or perform mercenary work. Eighty years after the apocalypse, Necropolis is attacked by a force of Steel Rangers. Gilda kills four of them single-handed before being killed, only to revive due to her status as a Canterlot ghoul. She also reveals her name to Ditzy Doo at this point.
Gilda is then challenged to a duel by the leader of the attacking Rangers, Emerald. What follows is a tough close combat battle which results in Emerald killing Gilda again. Gilda again revives, weakened, but fights on, finally dying permanently when she is beheaded by Emerald.
