Rima is a character in Breath of the Wild.

Breath of the Wild

Rima is an elderly Gerudo who is the former captain of the Gerudo Town guard. She can be found sitting and sleeping near the north end of town, right across from The Noble Canteen. She never leaves her spot, sitting there all day long before then going to sleep around 8pm. It is implied that she met Link 100 years ago as she seems to recognise him, though laments that she's never even left the town to meet any Hylians.[1] However, thanks to Urbosa, Link had access to the Gerudo Set, allowing him to traverse Gerudo Town under the guise of a female.[2]

She has never left Gerudo Town her entire life and has now settled down into retirement. She has been replaced by Buliara, who is the new captain of the guard.[1] Rima explains to Link how a gang of thieves slipped into the palace and stole the chief's heirloom, the Thunder Helm. Rima explains that if she was still in charge of the guard and something like this happened, she would send all the guards on duty back into training all the way from the beginning.[3]

Rima criticizes Buliara's leadership as head of the guard, stating that no failure like this would have been even thinkable when she was in charge. She wonders what the heck the guards were even doing when the theft occurred.[4][5]

Rima explains that once the Gerudo chief, Riju, was out surfing on her sand seal, Patricia. The seal got spooked and drifted very close to Divine Beast Vah Naboris, risking being struck by lightning. Ever since that event occurred, Buliara has refused to leave Riju's side.[6]

  2. Link requested to meet with me today.
    He tells me Zelda exploited our law that restricts men from entering town to slip away from him.
    I told him of a trick that would allow him entrance, and he was able to get in. By then, however, Zelda was long gone.

  3. A little while ago, a gang of thieves slipped into the palace and stole the chief's heirloom, the Thunder Helm. It's bad enough to be robbed in general, but for the object stolen to be a valued heirloom belonging to our own chief... If I was still in charge, any guard who failed to catch these thieves would be doing some serious manual labor. And then they'd be thrown back into training, all the way from the beginning. No exceptions! - Rima
  4. What were the guards doing while thieves are sneaking into town and making off with the chief's heirloom? When I was captain of the guard, such a failure would have been absolutely unthinkable. It's just pathetic. If Buliara was out on the front lines, this would never have happened. - Rima
  5. If I were still on active duty, I'd whip all of those guards back into shape. - Rima
  6. A little while ago... The sand seal that the chief was with got spooked by a monster and ran off... She quickly realized that it had pulled her very close to Naboris... Anyone who approaches Naboris risks being struck by lightning from that Divine Beast. The chief was lucky to get away... And ever since then, Buliara has refused to leave her side. - Rima
