|Many years later||A Link to the Past|
•The Imprisoning War
Hyrule Kingdom had finally gained a short-lived peace.
However, knowledge of the Sacred Realm and the Triforce spread across Hyrule, and many greedy people searched for it in order to claim its power.
But the Sacred Realm had become the Dark World under Ganondorf’s control, and those who ventured there never returned. Instead, only evil came out of the entrance.
•The Sages Seal the Sacred Realm
The King of Hyrule ordered the seven sages to seal the entrance to the Sacred Realm. As the sages prepared their spell, the Knight Family protected them from the demons that came gushing out of the entrance.
In the intense battle, most of the knights perished; however, the sages completed the spell and the entrance to the sacred realm was once again closed.
•The Knight Family
Bearing the crest of courage, this heroic lineage protects the royal family. Legends say that the hero will emerge from the Knight Family. Link, the Hero of Time from long ago whose mother died in the war of that era, may be related to these knights.
•The Decline of the Hylian Lineage
In the Hero of Time Era, the most people in Hyrule were related to Goddess Hylia. Hylians had magic powers and long ears who supposedly could hear the voices of the Gods.
However, after the Imprisoning War, the blood of the Hylians was greatly diminished compared to how it was in the past. Like the sages, even Hyrule Kingdom became a mere legend of old.
