The Knight Academy
All the human beings live in the islands floating in the sky. They’re so high up in the sky that not even birds, except for Loftwings, can get close. They worship the goddess and live peacefully.
“When we were first thinking of the tutorial system (what later became the Loftwing riding ritual), we wanted Link to have 3 rivals. And so we developed 3 bully characters and decided to go with a school setting. Since Gaepora is most likely the wisest person in Skyloft, we made him the headmaster.”
