Hilary Tachibana (known as Hiromi Tachibana in Japanese version) is a main charcter in the series, Beyblade and Beyblade V-Force. She is basically the voice of reason of the Bladebreakers, and is often the one coming up with smart ideas.
Hilary was introduced in Season Two, as a bossy, smart and stubborn girl, who acted as a leader while being the class president of Tyson's class. She first hated Beyblade and thought it was a "stupid toy", but she later got used to it and joined the Bladebreakers. Hilary didn't know that much about Beyblade at first, as one time she couldn't see the Bit Beasts of her team, but later finally saw them.
As the season progressed, Hilary became more violent in the next season, Beyblade: G-Revolution, and started to show her feminine side. Her role was a assistant coach/manager, while Hiro Granger served as the main one, but Hilary still supported the team no matter what.
Hilary can be seen as the Original Series version of Madoka Amano, as both of them supported their teams at times, and even the main protagonists.
Personality and RelationshipsAt times, Hilary can be very loud, bossy, over-reactive, quick to jump to conclusions and stubborn as a mule, however, she's smart, independent, kind, and a born leader. Daichi likes to call her; Grandma.
Hilary is a smart girl (Class President) in Tyson's class at school, and has been called cute by both Kenny and Max, but she doesn't take much notice of this.
At first Hilary didn't like Beyblade, and didn't like Tyson, a Beyblader, but after a while, Hilary made friends with the Bladebreakers and falls in love with Tyson with time.
Hilary is quick to make friends with all the Bladebreakers, and is one of the only people who can keep Tyson in line. She is also very out spoken. She's not afraid to argue with Tyson, and does seem to a lot in the second season. Hilary calms down a lot in the third season, acting more responsible and mature, but a bit more violent. She takes care of Daichi and Tyson by cooking, a running gag in the season since she is not good at cooking. She got angry when Tyson had a bad dream about her and spoke of her horrible cooking in his sleep.
Hilary is the voice of reason in the group, and is often the one coming up with smart ideas. She was even called clever by Kenny after she suggested that they ask Mr. Dickenson about the mysterious bladers that they ran into earlier. Later, when they were trapped on an island, Hilary suggested that they go to the lighthouse because there might be a way to communicate with someone and get help there, but since Tyson wanted to actually go through the island and fight all the bladers, they split up into two groups: Hilary, Kenny, and Kai in the first group, and Tyson, Ray, and Max in the second group. Not surprisingly, Hilary and the group reached the lighthouse before Tyson and his group defeated all the beybladers. They successfully contacted Mr. Dickenson, then went off to go find Tyson.
Hilary gets her strong and directing attitude from being the president of her class. She takes this position very seriously and uses it to her full advantage. Because she is the class president, she is able to sway the class anyway she wants and make them do anything, such as making Tyson stay after school and clean the classroom all by himself. She may be a more powerful speaker then a leader though.
The Wicked Witch of the Eighth Grade
Hilary is a smart girl who serves as the class president of Tyson's school. In the beginning, she shows strong dislike towards Tyson Granger.
Ever since Tyson's victory in the World Championships, Tyson has been missing school and getting late for class every day, much to Hilary's anger, she raises her voice in front of the class and tells how Tyson has been being a jerk ever since he won the World Championships, and that he should just stay home and play his "stupid game". Hilary then requests that Tyson should clean the class for the rest of the week every day, and all the students agree on it, much to Tyson's dismay.
