Shadow Magic Users




The Interlopers or Dark Interlopers were once a group of sorcerers who excelled in shadow magic. This shadow magic was sealed before Twilight Princess in the Fused Shadow. The Fused Shadow is a dark relic and was ultimately created in order to prevent the tribe from gaining dominance over the Sacred Realm.[1] Not much is known about the tribe itself other than the fact they sought the power of the Triforce, however, this is for unknown reasons. The dark sorcerers are early ancestors of what became to be known as the Twili. It is said they fought in a war between Hylians, implying they were Hylian, but the mere fact that they were called Interlopers raises doubt.[2]


The following events were explained to Link by the Light Spirit Lanayru after he restored the light to Lanayru Province.

During the ancient times of Hyrule, a dark tribe that excelled in shadow magic existed. They attempted to invade and take control of the Sacred Realm using the power of the Fused Shadowed, earning the name Interlopers.[3] Fearing the worst, the Goddesses reached out to the Light Spirits of Hyrule.[4] The four Light Spirits then intervened and took the Fused Shadows and sealed them away.[5] Three of the fragments were sealed within temples across Hyrule while the other was sealed away with the Interlopers. With the power of the Fused Shadow gone, the tribe was left powerless and were banished to the Twilight Realm.

Over time, due to the appearance of the Sols, the Interlopers evolved into the tribe known as the Twili. Living in complete isolation, the tribe’s evil intentions diminished and they came to know neither anger nor hatred.[6]
