The first Hylian to become an elite was actually an accident. A Wizard was testing out a new spell that he made, but it accidentally went awry, and made his apprentice unconcious. Over time, they noticed spikes growing out of his spine and along his arms. They found out that this mistake actually made him a little more agressive and dangerous.

 Spike Hylian Adventurers
Three sample Spike Hylian adventurers are described below.
Corelleon is a male Spike Hylian Barbarian/Wizard. He was the first to become one, due to the accident in the wizards lab. When he wasn't accepted by anyone, he decided to brave the wild. He met up with a group of adventurers fighting against three trolls. He rushed into the fray, jumping at a troll, slashing it with his spikes. It turns out that the adventurers were all very bloody, and the trolls had disarmed most of them. They offered that he should join their group, which he readily accepted.
Rethm is a female Spike Hylian Ranger. She was one of the first to be gifted with spikes at birth because the wizards found her gifted with fighting, due to a vision of her future. But, there was a despairing moment in the vision. What they saw was that she would become a Dark Hylian. "How is that possible?" Her father asked. "We don't know what she will do. We must let Destiny run its course." She showed real talent in combat that she was promoted to Colonel in the Specialist Forest Army. While scouting out the area in the forest, she met up with a Dark Hylian Ranger. "Neh!" the Dark Hylian exclaimed in surprise. As they prepared for battle, he muttered a few words, his sword started swirling with Necrotic energy. She fired off two shots at him, one of which he dodged, the other hitting him square in the shoulder. He growled, and giving a vicious battle cry, he charged and stabbed her in the chest. She gasped in pain. The Dark Hylian gave an evil smile, pulled the sword out of her, and ran away. Unconciousness took her, and she fell. Her comrades took her to the base, and after ten days, the signs of Darkness took her, and her whole complexion changed. The Spike Dark Hylian has been made.
