Hidalgo is a hot-headed samurai hailing from the shivering Aurora Glacier. After a mysterious battle in his hometown involving the mysterious Dark Matter, he abandoned his home and his brother to train at the most devastating place that any person of the ice world could find: Lavablast Mountain. It is there where he built his precious Stone Katana, a miserable looking but very quick and reliable weapon, and where he discovered his true power of controlling fire.
Hidalgo looks very similar to any other Popopo. He has a deep red color with red-brown eyes. He wears long blue hair that's also tied up at the top with a yellow band to hold up a little tuft of hair. His long hair, humorously, is often the leading reason why many who meet Hidalgo think he is a girl. Hidalgo wears a cape with a lighter shade of blue, and clings onto his hair because of it's sheer length. He wears brown sandal-like shoes on his feet.
Hidalgo, similar to other characters in the series such as White, is a fire elemental, although due to his training it appears to be much more powerful than those of White. His main weapon is the Stone Katana, which he built himself.
Hidalgo originally lived with his brother, Callor, in Aurora Glacier, where he felt different from all the rest (due to him being a true fire-elemental as opposed to the ice-elementals that live there) At some point before AoW, Hidalgo is offered the Snow Pendant as a gift from his sickly mother, but he refuses it quickly and asks that Callor keeps it. However, Hidalgo pays the price for not taking the Pendant by having to go up against a Dark Matter Invasion without any powers. Hidalgo is defeated quickly and is knocked unconscious, and when he wakes up, he notices that the Icebergs are sinking. Despite Hidalgo not making it out in time, he somehow manages to break out of the ice and escape to Lavablast Peak, where he swears that his revenge on the Dark Matter will come soon.
Hidalgo is normally not a very nice guy. To those that he just met, he may come off as stubborn, cocky, and extremely hot-headed, only thinking of most people as training bags. While most of this is true, people that Hidalgo gets to know well normally won't be sacrificed, as well as those who defeat him in combat. In addition, despite the fact that he is always looking for a challenge, he never picks on the weak in memory of himself, and only fights people that he knows are stronger than himself.
Despite this, Hidalgo also carries with him a deep sense of caring for his younger brother. As the older brother, he feels it to be his duty to make sure that nothing happens to him and that he needs to be the best role model. However, he can often underestimate Callor's powers as well, due to him being younger, but it's only because of the fact that Hidalgo cares so deeply for his brother and that he wouldn't want him to be harmed in any way.
Hidalgo is an intense fighter as well, but his weakness is the fact that he sometimes can get too overconfident when he's winning, causing him to react dramatically when the tide of battle shifts. Despite this, Hidalgo has a keen eye that lets him be able to seek out any weakness. His normally impossible to perform plans to reach these weaknesses often cause him to miss things.
Hidalgo is found training at the top of Lavablast Peak, performing very strict and rather dangerous activities to train his power; from slicing at giant pillars carved to look like Dark Matter to jumping in an active volcano. He takes on White and the other heroes because he mistakes the DMR for a Dark Matter supporting group. When he loses however, he still refuses to join the group, as he wants to take on the Dark Matter forces by himself for what they have done to him and his family. If they come back with Callor recruited, then Hidalgo will (rather unwillingly) join your team.
- Ironically, while Hidalgo is a fire elemental, Callor is an ice elemental. As such, many things about them are polar opposite, such as their personality and their environment in which they are recruited.
