Story time, kids. Long before any of you were born—way back in my party hard days—I attended this small get-together to celebrate the beginning of summer. As my friends and I walked into the backyard, we passed this person who casually said hello to us in a semi-deep voice. Combined with their short hair and baggy clothes, I naturally said “What up, bro?”, and thought nothing of it. Later in the night, one of my friends party approached me and asked if I met a girl named Allyson earlier. I said no, but he assured me I did. “Allyson… she was here earlier. Really short hair, had a black hoody on. Dude, she’s a chick. If I lie I die.”

However, upon vanquishing the Temple of Time’s monster and claiming another Sage, Link discovers Sheik is in fact Zelda, the princess he fell for as a child. It seems in his seven year absence, Zelda spent some time in prison, as she’s now muscle-bound and grim-faced.
