Impa

Impa:

Coming from both past and present for the sole purpose of protecting Zelda.
Fighting in one age, waiting in another.

“Young Impa’s design was inspired by Impa from Ocarina of Time and Sheik. Moreover, her silhouette was to give the impression of an androgynous male. Old Impa’s clothing style was design to give the image of having stayed the same over the course of time as she herself got older. The front of her hair swings like a pendulum every second and her triangular body shape gives her the appearance of a sundial. Her increasingly long braid reflects just how many years she has been there.”

(Satomi, Designer)

Old Impa

Each braid represents one year of waiting.

The shade from her hat functions as a sundial.
