Princess Hilda greats Link when he first arrives in Lorule and protects from Yuga who had just fused with Ganon. She instructs him to sage the seven sages in order to obtain the Triforce of Courage so that he can beat Yuga. However, this turns out to be a ruse as Hilda really intended to steal the Triforce in order to save Lorule. After Link beats Yuga, she still attempts to steal the Triforce until Ravio convinces her to stop. Hilda then helps Link return to Hyrule and she uses the Triforce to bring back Lorule's Triforce.
Ravio used to be a loyal servant of Princess Hilda. However, when she plotted to steal the Triforce from Hyrule, he left. Hilda was not sure where he went but was more focused on her plan with Yuga. After Yuga was defeated, Ravio arrives to try and stop her from stealing Hyrule's Triforce. Hilda is initially angry at him for leaving her but is eventually convinced after realizing that he was just doing what he thought was best for her.
Yuga was a loyal servant of Princess Hilda and always referred to her as "her grace". The two eventually come up with a plot to steal the Triforce from Hyrule in order to save Lorule. Hilda pretends to be an enemy of Yuga and help Link with defeating him but this turns out to be a ruse the whole time. However, he eventually betrays her as he cares more about power than saving Lorule. Yuga turns Hilda into a painting and absorbs her in order to steal the Triforce of Wisdom.
