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…

A calm rested over the city. Trumpets blew out the final notes of the Song of the Hero and every heart and mind in Castletown rested on the tale of the Hero of Legend. At dawn, the biggest celebration since the beginning of the era would begin. Banners, streamers, tents, and flags from every corner of Hyrule were already adorning the streets in honor of the 100th Swordsman Festival. Merchants from all over would sell their trinkets and goods, butchers…

“Laaaaaaaand!” The crew bustled about pulling up the sails, tying down portions of the ship, and readying the small row boats that they would use to pull ashore. There was a heavy splash as the anchor dropped and the ship gradually lurched to a stop. I emerged from my cabin and ascended the steps to the helm. I gazed out over the salty waters and cupped my hand over my eyes to see the small spec of earth piercing the…

I have the worst job in Hyrule. Please, don’t laugh. Trust me, I get that enough whenever I mention this at the local pub. Just hear me out. I have the worst job in this entire land. Sure, you have Her Highness, who, Goddesses bless, does her best day in and day out to keep us all together and keep the forces of evil at bay. She bears the weight of all her people with grace and dignity, and she…

She hovered next to the barracks window for a moment too long.  She had started to second guess herself.  What if he did not want her company?  He wasn’t her servant, at her beck and call.  She had actual servants for that, and she could call them.  He was a knight, bound or not.  Ultimately, he served her father, and he did so well.  But she didn’t want her servants – they could do nothing for her irrational fears.  Her…

Ten years later Koume had woken early, and, lying in her bed, she lazily conjured a small flame and allowed it to dance between her fingers.  She smiled at the pleasant warmth that crawled towards her wrist, before allowing the flame to expand into a burning ball of fire.  Out of all the earth magic that she had learned over the years, this was her favorite.  Mesmerized by her fire, Koume became lost in the memories of the last decade….
