The hero has died of old age, but an old threat, the Calamity Ganon, is on the verge of awakening once again. The former princess, now Queen, Zelda, summons all young champions of Hyrule to the castle to participate in a series of trials. Zelda, being too old to fight herself, is looking for suitable individuals to grant the Triforce to, which will aid them in fighting Ganon, and maybe someone will even prove themselves worthy of wielding the Master Sword. But will the trials be completed before the Calamity strikes
Also known as the Ultimate Power, is a sacred golden-relic left behind by the Golden Goddesses, Din, Nayru and Farore, once they finished creating the realm, which came to be known as Hyrule. The Goddess Hylia was tasked with the protection of this world and the Triforce. In legend told by the Sheikah it is said that when an unbalanced person touches the relic, it splits into three: The Triforce of Power, the Triforce of Wisdom and the Triforce of Courage. However, history has shown that the pieces of each Triforce can be divided into even more pieces.
Triforce of Power
Embodies the essence of the Goddess of Power, Din, the creator of the world. Formerly beared by Ganondorf, a male Gerudo, who was granted the Triforce of Power by “some cruel joke by the Gods” and abused it. He lost the Triforce when his physical form perished at the hands of the Hero, thousands of years ago. Whoever holds the Triforce of Power is granted "true power". This power is absolute, making the recipient of Din's blessing a god-like entity, vastly more powerful than any mortal, affording its wielder invulnerability, vast strength and an unlimited source of mystical power.
Triforce of Wisdom
Embodies the essence of the Goddess of Wisdom, Nayru, the author of law. Queen Zelda currently bears the Triforce of Wisdom herself, but she’s willing to grant it to a suitable candidate. It imparts divine wisdom upon its holder, and grants the holder untold mystical abilities, including the ability to heal others and, presumably, the ability to communicate telepathically. The Triforce of Wisdom leads its holder to make the right decisions, making them wiser than any mortal.
Triforce of Courage
Embodies the essence of the Goddess of Courage, Farore, the source of all life. The Triforce of Courage is formerly beared by the Hero. The Triforce of Courage, not only grants the bearer courage but also the protection against magic and the ability to master any weapon they touch.
The Master Sword
The sword that seals the darkness; also known as the blade of evil’s bane, originally crafted by the goddess Hylia as the Goddess Sword. The Sword is often seen to choose or accept its master by its own will, always a hero who has gone through great trials that test his courage, wisdom and power to prove him worthy of wielding it. This may be the conscious choice of the sword's spirit, Fi, who sleeps eternally within the sword and only assists her heroic master.
The Calamity Ganon
Ganondorf, also known as Ganon, was a male Gerudo Warlock, who is destined to eternally reincarnate to pursue world domination. He obtained the Triforce of Power, which he abused. In the events of Twilight Princess, he was killed by the Hero. In Breath of the Wild the Calamity Ganon is known as a primal evil, consisting of malice and hatred, who is trying to regain a physical form, which it doesn’t succeed in. He is once again defeated by the Hero and the Princess… But what if he returns?
The Races of Hyrule:
Humans who are descendants of the people who lived with the Goddess Hylia. They’re characterized by their pointed ears. It’s said their ears enable them to hear the Goddesses better. They were the first race to establish organized civilization upon the world formerly known as the surface. They live in Castle Town and various other small settlements across Hyrule.
They are a mysterious and secretive tribe with pointed ears, red eyes and shadowy magic abilities. They are the chosen guardians of the Goddess Hylia and later the protectors of the descendants of her mortal incarnation, the Royal Family of Hyrule. Their symbol is almost always featured on their clothes or painted on their faces. They founded Kakariko Village in which they still live.
The Zora are an aquatic folk who possess fish and amphibian like traits, including fins, webbed feet and gills, which allow them to swim and thrive underwater. Zoras can come in many shapes and sizes, but are most commonly depicted as humanoids with long tail fins on their heads and finned appendages on their arms and legs. They reside in Zora’s Domain.
The Vai (women) of the desert. Dark-skinned, tall, muscular women with bright red hair, who are certainly not shy of putting up a fight. They live in Gerudo Town where Voe (men) are forbidden to enter, and the Gerudo desert. Every hundred years there’s a male born, who is made King by birth right. When there’s no King, the Gerudo are led by a chief, who’s position is inherited from mother to daughter.
They are people who possess avian features, including wings with which gives them the ability of flight. While Rito can fly forward, they cannot ascend on their own and rely on the wind to lift them upwards. They live in Rito Village in Tabantha Frontier.
Proud mountain folk, also known as the Goron Tribe. Gorons possess immense strength which many are proud of, and many groups of Gorons like to hold competitions that test each other's physical strength and even rolling ability. They live on Death Mountain.
Welp. I honestly hope you read the whole thing x3 So now the background information is over, here’s some Q’s and A’s:
Where in the time line does this take place?
After Breath of the Wild.
Who can I play?
Any character that belongs to the races described above and other races from the Zelda universe. Hell, you can even play your made-up race but do ask me for permission first (same thing if you want to use another race from the Zelda universe, because it might conflict with time line shit).
Can my character still belong to a certain race when it doesn’t have all the features described?
Yes, no problem. Just don’t pick one that looks like a Hylian and say it’s a Goron :’]
I don’t understand jack-shit about the whole Zelda Universe
Well, first of all; that ain’t a question. Even I don’t know everything (and I honestly had to look at the Zelda gamepedia site for a few things). So, yeah, go to Zelda.gamepedia.com, or ask me and chances are I know a thing or two or I’ll look it up for you~
Name: Endure (As Twili) Cover Name: Dunere (As Hylian disguise) Race: Twili, disguised as a Hylian. Gender: Male Age: Unknown but has lived long enough to have experienced rise and falls of kingdoms and races. Bio: Endure was almost cast away when he was just a little twili kid because he was a clumsy little guy who showed little promise of accomplishments. Back in those days his name was Darane, the name given to him by his parents. When he was a teen and still showed no signs of magic or other strengths, while he was around the age others were finding their strengths, his parents sent him to the training camps where he could train to become a member of the army or die trying to accomplish something in his life.
In the training camp he underwent rigorous training which was hard for him since he still hadn't found what he was good at. Over time the training got the better of him and he was ready to give up. As a last resort one of his captains made him go through a heavy training program usually only given to those who completed their training and wanted to become captain themselves. Saying that if he couldn't even complete one task of that program that he would have no hope to ever even become a soldier. Since soldiers only needed to be good at one thing but captains needed to do everything. "Just succeed at one part and you can be a soldier. Otherwise leave." Were the exact words. Knowing he didn't have any other place to go to if he couldn't pull this off he went all in, giving literally everything he had to try and succeed. The first parts didn't go all that well but three tests in and his magic finally awakened. After that he showed an almost natural ability at it, being able to control it as if he already had all of the years experience from when his magic laid dormant in him. No need to say that with his powers awakened and him showing an exceptional adaptability in the using of magic that he passed the next couple of tests.
This not only attracted the attention of the other captains in the camp but a few weeks later even that of Midna. Darane continued his training in the camps and took on 'Endure' as a new name, reminding him of the hardship he had to endure and that if you endure life you will come out winning.
When his training was completed he took the captain test again, now passing every test as is required. He then went on pushing himself to new heights every time until he managed to climb up to Midna's personal army. He stayed there for a longer time until Midna grew more interested in him by the week, remembering he was the one who was deemed pretty much worthless as child but fought against everything thrown at him. Endure was offered the position of the assistant of Midna's personal bodyguard, with the promise of succeeding him when he resigned.
The rest of that is history. Endure served as Midna's personal bodyguard. Even being there when Midna adopted a little kid and always being at her side while little No'ir was also there. As No'ir grew up she also became part of his job, not only being Midna's personal bodyguard but also No'ir's. Any past bodyguard of Midna can tell you that she is already a handful to deal with, although none of them would admit to that if there was even the faintest chance of Midna herself hearing that, but add a kid to that mix.... Oh boy. Nonetheless Endure still really loved his job. And he grew to love little No'ir as if she was his own daughter. Well that is until the teenage years and taking care of her was even more of a hassle than Midna was. He ended up having a hate/love relationship with No'ir, which he was pretty damn sure was both ways.
He couldn't help but be a liiittle bit annoyed when Midna chose her young daughter to go to the light world and infiltrate her. Ofcourse he was. He had more experience than No'ir. He was trained for all matter of circumstances and was highly adaptable to new situations. It should have been them.
Now he finally got what he wanted back then. Their infiltration mission was, somehow, a succes and No'ir was now holding a position very much like the one Endure has (even more salt into that wound). Midna chose a champion amongst her people to go to the light world and bring back the triforce for them. That champion was Endure. She blessed him with a little bit of her magic as she did with No'ir, so he could survive in the light world and on he went to partake in the triforce trials. in the light world he took on a Hylian disguise and changed his name to Dunere. Only No'ir would know of his true nature as he would be the only one to know of No'ir's.
Name: Tejinnu, aka Jin. Race: Gerudo Gender: Male Age: 24 Bio: Well... you can say it was quite a surprise when Jin was born. The gerudo hadn't exactly kept track of the last male birth amongst them, but that it was already 100 years, noone expected that. And since Ganondorf is still very fresh in everyone's memory, seeing as they're reminded of him every few generations when he comes back to torment Hyrule, you could say that everyone was a bit shocked at another male among them. Nevertheless he was raised to be a leader of the tribe, as is customary, the only male allowed inside Gerudo town (apart from the odd goron here and there). From a young lad he was thought to be humble, that was in a hope to not have him turn out so power hungry like another male gerudo, but at the same time to be an example and a leader. He was thought the fine arts of fighting and sneaking, like all gerudo. His mother, Jinna, started training him from a very young age, which Jin always has liked. He enjoyed spending the time with his mom and learning to sneak, using it to surprise others. Since a kid is even lighter and by extension a bit better in sneaking. Unfortunately as he got older and taller/heavier, he got a bit worse in sneaking. But still being a gerudo it didn't mean he was bad at sneaking, just that it was hard to surprise his fellow gerudo. But surprising a fellow gerudo was difficult for all gerudo, just because they were used to their light-footedness.
As he got older his fate became more apparent and by the time he was 14 they told him he would be crowned king at 18. This came as somewhat of a shock and he didnt exactly know what to do. Suddenly there was this whole city that would look for his guidance, his leadership. And he couldnt do that. He was way more comfortable following what others said, what others expected him to do. But now they expected him to be a ruler..
So the next four years his training shifted more towards political stuff and the needs of his people. He also spent more time with their chief, learning from her. He still had his martial training and other lessons he had his whole life, which he was grateful for because those kept him interested, however most time was spent preparing for becoming their king.
Like said, when he turned 18 he was crowned their king and from then on his life changed a lot. he had the weight of the whole tribe on his shoulders now and had to lead them. Now he wasn't necessarily a bad king but he just didnt like it. Noone died in his time as leader, and all threats were dealt with swiftly and without problem. One such threat he had to deal with a few times was getting rid of a Molduga whenever it came too close to gerudo town, endangering not only the gerudo but also travelers in the surrounding area.
Although him dealing with those threats was more a way of fighting and warrior style, which was more of his style, than being a king and ordering people who could deal with those things.
This also explains why he was quick in answering queen Zelda's call when he received her letter. Fighting and protecting others was more his style than sitting and ordering others around. So he left gerudo town in the capable hands of the former chief to keep an eye on everything in his absence as he joined the many warriors in the trials.
Name: Alaistar Race: Zora Age: 19 Gender: Male Bio: Protec lil bean. Attac threats. Secret personal guard of lil brave bean. Brave bean is too cute for sharky. Is easily persuaded by fish boi. Prefers two handed swords and bows, if possible uses ice or bomb arrows.
Birb Name: Fearne Race: Rito Sex: Female Age: 23 Bio: Fearne is a happy go lucky girl. She grew up in Rito Village, but she’s been traveling around Hyrule for quite some time now. One of her favourite places is Gerudo Town because she likes the warm weather and the huge market. Most Rito choose a bow as their weapon, but Fearne doesn’t really like to do what everyone else is doing, so she chose a throwing spear as her weapon. She’s not really keen on using it, but she needs some protection from monsters when she’s travelling and she’s quite skilled. She’s very much interested in folk lore and that’s the main reason for her traveling around, since she’s already read most of the books about them. Also, she's a lot taller than a regular Rito.
Fish boy Name: Ralis Race: Zora Sex: Male Age: 17 Bio: Ralis is named after a previous Prince of the Zoras and is the youngest son of King Sidon. He's always been quite shy and nervous, however he was determined to be of use to the Zora domain and enlisted to be in the army. After relentless training sessions, he became quite skilled with the traditional Zora weapon. One day there was a big threat swimming up the river towards the domain, so the army got ready to defend their home and swam towards the monster. However they later realised there was a storm coming up as well, and the Zora are quite prone to lightning. A lot of soldiers fled the fight in the hope they could come back to defeat the threat later, but not Ralis. No, Ralis had to prove himself right there and then. Completely oblivious to the fact that his trident was attracting lightning, Ralis faced the monster himself. Just as he was about to stab the monster in his eye a lightning bold came crushing down, effectively killing the foe. However Ralis was hit too and being in contact with the water made matters even worse. Ralis was left unconscious for hours until the remaining army found him and rushed him to the healers. He was out for a few days, but seemed to be healing just fine. He even didn't have any visible scars, but after a few days it became apparent his body did suffer a some nerve damage. Every now and then Ralis starts twitching, not being able to control the movements of his body at all. These involuntary movements made Ralis even more self-conscious, and he's sometimes so ashamed he locks himself up in his house for days. Nowadays he's been able to deal with it more, but he's been avoiding the water ever since the accident.
Twili form Sheikah disguise Name: No'ir Race: Twili (disguised as a Sheikah) Sex: Female Age: Unknown Bio: No'ir is a Twili who is adopted by Midna, the Twilight Princess. Twili aren't able to live in the light, but Midna gave some of the magic, which was given to her by a previous princess of Hyrule, to No'ir so she could serve as a spy in the light world. In order to make this work, she transformed into a Sheikah and succesfully infiltrated the tribe, she even worked her way up into becoming the Royal Guardian of Queen Zelda herself. However, she's only loyal to Midna. No'ir was chosen by Queen Zelda to lead the group of champions through the Triforce Trials, but she's actually following a scheme made by Midna to get the Triforce into the hands of the Twili...
Joan Name: Joan/Joanie Race: Hylian Sex: Female Age: 18 Bio: One of the first things people notice about Joan are her different coloured eyes. Joan is originally from Lurelin Village. When Joan's dad died, she took it on herself to provide for her family. She always made sure there would be enough food for her little brothers, so her mother wouldn't have to worry about such things. At first there was plenty of fish in the sea, however as time passed on, Joan had to venture out further and further into the ocean to get a good catch. This wasn't only a problem for Joan and her family, but also for the rest of the village. More and more fishermen came home empty handed every week. That's when Joan decided to join a pirate crew. That way she could steal enough resources to keep her village well fed. The crew quickly became impressed by Joan's strategical and trickster nature, so she quickly climbed up the ranks. Joan wasn't invited for the triforce trials, but she obtained an invitation during one of her raids. Joan mostly fights with knifes and a curved blade.
Sirif Name: Sirif Race: Gerudo Gender: Female Age: 19 Appearance: Sirif is quite short for a Gerudo, about 1.64m, and pretty curvy. Her skin is dark brown and heavily freckled all over. She has piercing yellow eyes, the eyelids of which are usually painted purple, the same colour that she paints her lips. She wears a lot of jewelry, all of which is usually gold with gemstones in hues of red and orange. Her dark red hair is short and wildly curling, that refuses to be tamed. Bio: Sirif is a carefree, light-hearted girl. Her eyes often carry a spark of mischief, and personality-wise she'd have been better born a Rito: she's like a magpie, always drawn to shiny things. She was born the daughter of a jeweler, and has inherited the talent to craft jewelry, but also isn't above stealing whatever pieces of jewelry she covets on other people. Quick-fingered and light on her feet, she depends heavily on stealth as her primary method of offense, fighting with light, curved blades and throwing knives.
Ez Name: Ezran 'Ez' Race: Hylian Gender: Non-binary Age: 24 Appearance: Ez is a pretty tall and broad Hylian, but carries themselves much smaller, usually ducking their head and standing hunched over. Their skin is very dark, and they have green eyes. A scar cuts into their upper lip. Their black hair is shaved on the sides and pulled back into a low ponytail. Bio: Ez used to be a pretty humble hunter who was pretty drawn-back and didn't communicate much with other people. However, when they saved a group of children who had gotten lost in the forest, they gained quite a bit of renown, and are now pretty much a local folk hero. They're not really enthusiastic about all this attention, but they seem to have a natural aura that draws people in despite their reluctance to actually talk to people. They prefer ranged combat, and are a mean shot with a bow and arrow.

No’ir | Twili in Sheikah disguise
Head held high, she walked onto the balcony, looking over the courtyard full of young warriors. She knew Endure would be among them, though she didn’t know what his disguise looked like. She would find out soon enough, though. For a moment she cleared her throat, signalling everyone to be quiet. “Behold” She began, voice calm but authoritarian. “Queen Zelda of Hyrule!” She announced. Trumpets started playing and No’ir gave her Queen a helping hand, supporting her on her way to the balcony. She couldn’t help but notice that the Queen had become even more frail than she already was.
Zelda took a while to get to the balcony, becoming more unstable with every step, luckily her personal guard was a great help. She took a few breaths before addressing the crowd, eyes glistening when she recognised almost all of the young warriors she had send a personal invite. She began addressing them one by one, her voice somehow sounding clear and powerful. “Dunere of Hateno Village, Ezran of Castle Town, King Tejinnu of the Gerudo, Sirif of the Gerudo, Fearne of the Rito, Énnacor of the Rito, Prince Ralis of the Zora, Alaistar of the Zora”. The Queen went on for a while, until having addressed everyone. “It’s an honour to welcome you to the castle today. Once again there’s a great threat looming over our Kingdom. The calamity is gaining strength once again. It is only a matter of time before it will strike again. I am saddened to inform you that the Hero won’t be here to save us this time. May the Goddess Hylia watch over his soul…” Her voice trailed off a bit. Link’s passing was still a sore spot for her. “However, I have taken notice of your bravery, your intellect and your strength. That is why I have invited you, champions, to take part in these trials. As you may know, the three Golden Goddesses brought into this world a sacred power: the Triforce. Courage, wisdom and power. If you conquer these trials, I will bestow upon you the Triforce that speaks most to your soul. It will aid you in your quest to defend these lands from the calamity.” For a moment it sounded like she was finished. After all she seemed caught up in her own thoughts. Hesitantly she added. “I will also grant you a chance of asking the Sword of Evil’s Bane’s for it’s blessing. It will only choose to be held by those pure of heart. I pray it’s spirit will help you on your journey…” The Queen took a step back, nodding at the crowd before steadying herself again against her guard.
No’ir | Twili in Sheikah disguise
No’ir nodded at her Queen, knowing her speech had ended. She took her Queen inside again, before the lady would exhaust herself beyond her limits. When she had settled the Queen on one of her sofas, No’ir headed outside again. “I, No’ir of the Sheikah, will guide you all during your trials. I assume you are quite tired and hungry from your travels. You are welcome to take part in the feast where there will be enough meat and mead for each and everyone of you, however it is your own responsibility to be well rested by morning. As tomorrow your trials will begin”
Ofcourse he was already waiting for a bit as others gathered as well, seeing as this was an important task that Midna gave him. She was also the reason he was early, having sent him here first thing in the morning. When finally everyone was gathered there was some commotion on the balcony and he saw a somewhat slender figure emerging, holding on to an older more fragile frame. He didn't have to guess for a second to know that the taller frame was No'ir. He was well informed about her position in this world, much to his dislike, but also her eyes still looked the same. He listened to the speech Queen Zelda gave about the trials and the upcomming danger to the land. He already knew about most of this since the sole reason they were here was to get the triforce to the Twili side. However Queen Zelda did mention one thing that piqued his interest. She said they would be able to have a go at trying to get the blessing of the sword of evil's bane. Now that was news for him. To be able to get your hands on such a fabled weapon.. He needs to admit that even though he dislikes the weapons of this world a lot, he just doesn't see why one would need such barbaric tools, Endure is quite interested in the abilities of the sword and would love to be able to test it out for himself.
After the speech Queen Zelda is escorted back to her chambers and No'ir emerges again a few minutes later, saying they are welcome to make use of the big feast but it's their own responsibility to be well rested in the morning. He keeps staring at No'ir for longer than one usually does and gives a very soft, slight nod towards her before averting his gaze.
Midna did mention he should mingle and try to blend in but he would have no idea where to start. Not only could he very easily be found out if he said something wrong about the Hylian's, which he was supposed to be passing as, truth be told he already had a hard time fitting in and blending with other Twili, let alone other races he never saw before.
No.. For now he would keep a low profile, stay away from the big crowd. Just like a predator he was first observing the others, seeing what he could gather already from observations alone. Call it cockyness, trust issues, or psychopathic behavior. Truth is noone knows exactly what the trials would be so you could better be prepared for everything.
King Tejinnu/Jin ~ Gerudo
Jin was somewhat on the late side because he had some last minute stuff to take care of as leader of the gerudo. Nonetheless he used everything he had to be able to make it on time, even if it was just barely on time. As he walked over to the group of gathered warriors, Queen Zelda just started her speech. It didn't take long for Jin to let his head hang and sigh softly. He could respect Queen Zelda for acknowledging another ruler and respect them, but at the same time he had made it clear on multiple occations that he prefered to just be called Jin. Tejinnu was already too formal for his taste, let alone saying King before it.
For the rest of the speech he was listening with full interest. So Queen Zelda was really going to split all the power they have amongst new champions to take Ganon down? That is admirable. He just hoped he could help in that fight, whether that would be wit a piece of the triforce, the sword of evil's bane or just as a regular champion helping the others fight, he didn't really care. He just hopes he could prove himself worthy of fighting against Ganon and maybe help rectify the mistake his race made a long ago.
After the speech he slowly made his way to tables filled with food and mead. Not yet interested in eating he just grabbed a tankard of mead and made his way back to the others. It didn't take long for him to spot another gerudo, Sirif. How could he miss her? The signature red hair and the golden jewelry adorning her, like a true gerudo. He couldn't help but try out his sneaking on her, knowing damn well it would be difficult to sneak up on her seeing as she is also a gerudo and the one race who could hear a gerudo coming from miles was another gerudo. And besides that he is a male and thus a bit heavier and by extension louder than the average female gerudo. Nonetheless he just had to try so he slowly began stalking her, softly placing down one foot in front of the other to get close to her.
Alaistar ~ Zora
Well.. They made it, somehow. They had plenty of bumps in the road but Ralis and Alaistar both finally made it to the trials and that without too many wounds, most being on Alaistar because he is stubborn. Queen Zelda holds her speech after which her personal guard finishes by saying a feast is ready and he can't help but chuckle, thinking back about all the times Ralis he gorged himself on food in his presence. Who thought princes were sophisticated clearly hasn't met Ralis yet. After the whole introduction he turns to Ralis. "I guess you'd like to talk to Queen Zelda now, right?" He asks as he takes in the other warriors that have gathered around. Seems like a lot of different people are here, though he can't help but notice there aren't any Goron. And you would know if one of them were there, it's just not possible to miss them.
((ugh head. Ill post birb later))
