The sun slowly crept its way across the sky as Nabooru and Ashai exited the Great Hall, heading towards the archery range. Nabooru scanned the horizon for clouds, noting with satisfaction the vast expanse of uninterrupted blue. If not for the stiff wind, Nabooru could have convinced herself that it was a lovely spring day. She pulled up her hood and reached into her cloak’s inner pocket, retrieving a matching pair of amethyst fingerless gloves. The adults exiting the Great…

A piercing tendril of dawn air curved its way around a large, tan awning before slithering down the open window. Its intended target slumbered peacefully below, buried in a mound of blankets, rugs, and pillows of various patterns and sizes. She blended into her cocoon perfectly, and if not for the girl’s long, scarlet hair she would have been forever lost amongst the intricate geometric patterns. The room itself was quite small and barren. Still being too early for the…

The sun had just started to set. It had been a beautiful day, spent with Zelda and the other champions.  We often fell into a comfortable silence but Daruk tried his best to keep us talking. In the periods of silence, I admired the clouds in the sky, the sounds of birds chirping, and the gentle breeze. Everything was so peaceful. Eventually, we had all accompanied the princess through the Lanayru Promenade, so that she and Link could make their…

The next few weeks passed by in a blur. My time was split between Hyrule Castle and Zora’s Domain. It was also split between being among the other champions and my family. Any second that I had outside of those commitments was spent within the walls of the Divine Beast, Vah Ruta. My family had become so understanding of my absence and were supportive of my duties as Champion. The other champions and Princess Zelda had become almost a pseudo-family…

Central Hyrule was so beautiful! The scenery was full of lush grasslands, rolling hills, and so many different types of trees. Flowers bloomed in the sprawling fields and dotted the landscape with a rainbow of colors; it was like we were walking in a dream. The yellows radiated like the sun and the pinks and purples stood out among the vibrant land. It was all so open and green compared to the blue waters of Zora’s Domain and I wished…

I awoke early in the morning to the lapping of the cool water from our pool caressing my skin. I turned to find my brother, Sidon snoozing peacefully at the surface of the water, with tiny ripples spreading out around him.  I sighed peacefully and wondered what he was dreaming about. I gently kissed his head and then waded out and started to get ready for the day. Father had told me last night that he was ready to discuss…

Throughout the ages, my people have reigned in the waters of the Lanayru Province in Hyrule. My family has reigned since those early days, and we have evolved with the land. I grew up hearing stories of the Zora women of legend — the Sage of Water, the Queen Who Lost Her life To The Twilight, and others. The monarchy of the Zora continues to thrive to this day, and shall continue to do so until the end of time….

“Aldwin!” “Just promise me that you’ll make them look good.” Osmond stood in the doorway to his friend and mentor’s office, staring at a man in the mirror that he hardly recognized. A weathered green tunic that fit him perfectly, a sturdy shield that easily fit to his arm, and a perfectly weighted sword. These were the ‘surprises’ that Aldwin had alluded to at the feast the night prior. “The tunic is a hand-me-down, if you’re ever an actual knight,…

“How much further is this place?” A young soldier asked, peeking his head out from the side of the wagon. “Depends,” the driver responded with a shrug. He turned briefly to look back, but adjusted his scarf to keep the whipping sand from getting in his mouth, “this is pretty mild sandstorm but if she gets worse…” The soldier nodded and ducked back into the tent then shaking his face free of the sand that had built up around the…

“I can’t wear this Impa,” Zelda ran a brush through her golden blonde hair as she stared back at her mentor, bodyguard, friend, and handmaiden in the mirror. “It’s a gift from your father. You must,” she set the small wooden box on the vanity and took a step back to help the Princess with her hair. “How am I going to draw my bow back though?” Impa tugged roughly on a knot that had formed near Zelda’s ear, “who…
