Ilia is a female character featured in Twilight Princess. She is a close friend of Link's, and is the daughter of the mayor of Ordon Village, Bo. She has an undying love for horses, and takes good care of Epona for Link. She has a kind and caring personality, which can be seen when she tries to take care of Prince Ralis when she found him unconscious, even through she didn't know him. Ilia is very much like her mother, who died before the game takes place.
In the beginning of the game, Ilia gets mad at Link for hurting Epona during a ride. She takes his horse to Ordon Spring, and cleanses her wounds. When Link enters the spring, she agrees to let Link take Epona back, but makes him promise not to do anything "out of his league". Then, out of nowhere, King Bulblin and some Bulblin Riders come bursting into the spring and knock Link unconscious. They take Ilia, and all of the other Ordon kids, and proceed to scare Epona away.
- ↑ "She's the spittin' image of her late mother, that girl... Right down to her strong will..." — Mayor Bo, Twilight Princess.
- ↑ "[Link]! How could you! You were pushing [Epona] too hard again! I bet you hurt her leg jumping fences, didn't you!" — Ilia, Twilight Princess.
- ↑ "It'll be all right, [Epona]. I'll take you to the forest spring right now. Once we soothe you in the spirit's spring, you'll feel better in no time!" — Ilia, Twilight Princess.
- ↑ "Fortunately, it looks like the injury isn't too serious. You two can go on together. But, [Link]... Can you at least promise me this? No matter what happens on your journey, don't try to do anything... out of your league. Please." — Ilia, Twilight Princess.
- ↑ "This gift was meant for you. It was something I wanted to give you before you left on your journey. Please, [Link], take it. You don't need to worry about me any longer. Whenever you return... I'll be waiting for you." — Ilia, Twilight Princess.
