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.
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. He's quite a shy and nervous boy, but when you win his trust he won't leave your side. He's more comfortable on land than in the water as he's not the best swimmer out there. However he is quite an experienced fighter who uses a trident, just like most Zoras. However, he's not entirely confident he will make it trough the Triforce Trials.
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 Twili, 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...
Vita Name: Vita Race: Hylian Sex: Female Age: 25 Bio: Vita is the daughter of the chief of Lurelin Village, and has always been quick to take on a leading role, but she's also always quickly become the mom of any group she's in. So yeah, you could say it's in her nature to care for others. Her father's been falling in and out of illnesses lately, so initially Vita wanted to stay by her father side and take care of the village when she received Queen Zelda's invitation. However her father urged her to make way to the castle, because he knew what damage the calamity could do to the castle. Vita is quite skilled with several weapons, however she prefers to fight with knives.
