The primitive wandering inhabitants of Teyvat's wildernesses.
Hilichurls display a strong sense of adaptability to their surroundings. In icy environments, they come up with ways and means to fashion this hard ice into shields to protect themselves.

Ice Shield Hilichurl Guards are Hilichurls equipped with an ice club and a Cryo shield. When not attacking, they raise their shield to block incoming frontal attacks regardless of whether the attack is physical or elemental. They can still be struck by arrows from afar if caught off guard, and cannot block attacks from behind. However, if its shield is already raised, it will rotate to face the player, making a sneak attack from behind quite challenging in single-player mode.

Pyro damage, along with Claymores can damage the shields. As the shield is Cryo based, Anemo attacks can Swirl the Cryo status onto them and nearby enemies.
