As soon as [[Link]] arrives here, a group of [[Twilight Beast]]s attempt to ambush him, however he kills them and after riding up to the top of the Statue positioned within the chamber using his [[Spinner]], the young hero pulled the Mirror of Twilight out of the sand it was buried in. Seeing that it was shattered, [[Midna]] gasps out in shock and anger, as she knew [[Zant]] was behind it. At this point the Ancient Sages appear before them and speak of what had happened. The Sage with the [[Shadow Medallion]] on its garb states that guarding the Mirror was something they have been doing since ancient times. The Sage with the [[Forest Medallion]] on its garb then follows up by saying that while Link and Midna were seeking it, the Mirror had now been shattered by mighty magic. The sage who wore the [[Spirit Medallion]] adds to this by mentioning how it was broken by a dark magic only he possessed, and the Sage who wore the [[Light Medallion]] then continued saying the man they spoke of was [[Ganon|Ganondorf]]. This Sage then told about how Ganondorf was the demon thief who stormed [[Hyrule]] in an attempt to invade the [[Sacred Realm]], he wielded evil magic and was renowned for his ruthlessness, somewhere down the line the Sages attempted to execute Ganondorf for his terrible crimes by stabbing him in the chest with their Execution Sword. However he survived because due to what they called a "divine prank" he had received the [[Triforce of Power]], after this he easily broke out of his shackles and killed the Sage of Water, laughing and pulling the sword out of his chest afterwards. In response to this, the remaining Sages took drastic measures and banished Ganondorf to the Twilight Realm, mourning over the loss of the Sage he had killed shortly afterwards. Once this was all explained the sages brought up the notion that perhaps Zant had gotten his powers from Ganondorf, Midna commented saying that they figured that out too late, and explained how only the true leader of [[Twilight]] could shatter the Mirror completely while Zant was only able to break it into a few pieces. The sages then inform the two of them where these fragments are located, one in the [[Snowpeak|snowy mountain heights]], one in a [[Sacred Grove|ancient grove]], and a final one in the [[City in the Sky|heavens]]. The sages them stated Link would likely be able to collect the shards, but warned him of the impending dangers that were ahead, knowing what must be done now Link and Midna left the Mirror Chamber in search of the Mirror Shards.

Mirror Chamber

The Mirror Chamber is a location in Twilight Princess, accessed after Stallord is defeated; this area is positioned on the roof of the Arbiter's Grounds. This area was where the Ancient Sages banished the worst of criminals to the Twilight Realm through the use of the Mirror of Twilight and a large unique rock they projected the portal onto.

First Visit

Link first comes across the chamber on his mission to find the Mirror of Twilight, which he needs to access the Twilight Realm. As soon as he and Midna arrive here, a group of Shadow Beasts attempt to ambush him. After slaying the dark creatures, the young hero equips his newly acquired Spinner and rides the tall statute situated within the center of the chamber. Link can then use his Spinner again to activate a switch thus sinking the statute into the ground and raising the Mirror of Twilight. Seeing that it was shattered, Midna gasps out in shock and anger, as she knew Zant was behind it.

At this point, the Ancient Sages appear before them and speak of what had happened. The Sages explain how they were tasked with guarding the Mirror and how it was shattered before they came here. One of the Sages then goes on to speak of how they were sentenced to kill Ganondorf, an evil demon who attempted to access the Sacred Realm. However, after impaling him with the Sage's Sword, by some "divine prank", Ganondorf was able to acquire the Triforce of Power and break free of his imprisonment. With no choice left, the Sages sealed him within the Twilight Realm. The Sages then inform the two of them where these fragments are located, one in the snowy mountain heights, one in a ancient grove, and a final one in the heavens.

Second Visit

After Link and Midna have collected all three Mirror Shards, thus restoring the Mirror of Twilight, they intend to go and confront Zant in the Twilight Realm. Before this however, the Sages appear before them. The Ancient beings apologise for their hasty actions and ask for forgiveness. They also refer to Midna as the Twilight Princess, and she goes on to explain why she chose Link and how she now understands that she must save Hyrule as well as her own homeland.

Final Visit

Link and Midna come here one final time during the final credits. After defeating Ganondorf and saving Hyrule, Midna prepares to say her goodbyes to both Princess Zelda and Link. However, the leader of the Twili ends up shattering the mirror thus breaking the only known link between the two worlds.

Trivia

  • The Mirror Chamber has a striking resemblance to the interior of a colosseum, possibly indicating that it was an inspiration during the design of the Arbiter's Grounds.
