About Her

Living... in Hyrule Castle, located in the magical kingdom of Hyrule. The diverse landscape of Hyrule hosts many wonders and secrets, but is most noteworthy as the land that contains the sacred, powerful relic known as the Triforce.

Profession... royal princess. Princess Zelda was born into the Royal Family of Hyrule and is the guardian of the Triforce of Wisdom, one of the three pieces of the Triforce. While Zelda often ends up kidnapped by Ganon, she’s far from helpless - the Triforce of Wisdom allows her to use magic, and makes her a powerful sorceress. 

Interests… serving Hyrule’s citizens, protecting the Triforce, and occasionally aiding Link on his quests. Princess Zelda spends most of her time acting as an example to royalty everywhere, and treating the citizens with decency and respect.

Relationship Status... single. Princess Zelda doesn’t have much time for a relationship, although destiny always ties her to the hero of time and keeper of the courage portion of the Triforce: Link.

Challenge... to defeat the evil Ganon, a mysterious figure from beyond the desert who wields the Triforce of power – a relic that grants him incredible magical power and invulnerability to all but the deadliest weapons. But Ganon hungers for more and seeks to unite all three pieces of the Triforce to achieve ultimate power. Only Zelda and Link, the bearers of the other two segments of the Triforce, can hope to stop him. While it’s usually Link that ends up doing the actual battling with Ganon, Zelda’s sage wisdom steers him down the right path and is often critical in saving Hyrule from Ganon’s inestimable cruelty.

Personality... caring, selfless, and wise. Princess Zelda is a kind and dutiful ruler who tries her best to care for the citizens of Hyrule. When the safety of Hyrule is at stake, she does not hesitate to sacrifice herself for the good of the land. Her mature demeanor makes her forgiving and allows her to offer sagely wisdom to Link: “Shadow and Light are two sides of the same coin…One cannot exist without the other.”
