Rhoam Bosphoramus Hyrule
|Spoiler Alert! This article describes a subject that is sensitive to plot development.|
A century ago, King Rhoam, aided by the four Champions and the Divine Beasts, attempted to stop Calamity Ganon from destroying the world. Ganon was cunning, however, and created the various blight Ganons to take control of the Divine Beasts and turn the Guardians against the people of Hyrule. On that day most of Hyrule's citizens, including the Champions and the King himself, lost their lives. Princess Zelda managed to survive and seal Ganon away inside Hyrule Castle. For the past century, Rhoam has wandered the land as a spirit, concealing himself as an Old Man and, except for the Monks and Link, is the Great Plateau's only resident.
A hundred years after these events, Princess Zelda's power began to wane and Ganon was breaking free from his prison. Rhoam encountered Link when he emerged from the Shrine of Resurrection, serving as his guide in the new world. Once Link completes the first four shrines, Rhoam reveals his identity to Link and tells him of the events that caused his demise, whilst also gifting the Paraglider upon Link. Rhoam advises Link to head east towards Kakariko Village and seek out Impa. Following Calamity Ganon's defeat, Rhoam sees his daughter again before he and the other deceased champions depart.
