|The Era of Decline||The Legend of Zelda|
•The Creeping Hand of Evil
There came a day when the Demon Army, lead by the Great Demon King, Ganon, invaded Hyrule Kingdom and stole the Triforce of Power.
The Princess Zelda of this era divided the Triforce of Wisdom that remained into 8 pieces and hid them all around the kingdom. She secretly ordered her nurse, Impa, to seek someone with the courage to defeat Ganon for them. Ganon, angered by Princess Zelda’s actions, captured her and sent his followers after Impa.
•The Chance Meeting of the Nurse, Impa and the Boy, Link
Impa continued her desperate flight, but was at last surrounded by Ganondorf’s underlings. Then, the boy, Link, appeared, and cleverly confused them, managing to rescue her. Impa explained her circumstances to Link, who decided to defeat Ganon and save Princess Zelda.
•The Great Demon King, Ganon
The Great Demon King has been sealed countless times by heroes in the past. He is thought to have been resurrected after many years. Leading the Demon Army, he invaded the small kingdom of Hyrule, seeking the Triforce. No longer bearing any trace of the man known as the great thief, Ganondorf, he opposed Link in the form of a demonic beast, devoid of intelligence.
Princess Zelda’s nurse, she is descended from a long line that has served the royal family of Hyrule for generations. Her role is to care for various articles related to the royal family, as well as pass down the family’s history and folklore. Her line cherishes the heirlooms of great kings, and passes down the tragedy of Princess Zelda I.
A young traveller. He encounters Impa while visiting Hyrule Kingdom. It is thought that he may be the descendent of the Link that defeated Ganon and departed on a journey to gain knowledge during the era of Light and Shadow.
•The People of the Small Kingdom of Hyrule
Surrounded by harsh but abundant nature, the people have taken up residence and live out their day-to-day lives in caves and dwellings under the earth. The traders of Hyrule also peddle their wares in caves and underground, selling a variety of objects. There are also springs where fairies reside, which act as places of healing for travellers.
