The Missing Link
[EDIT: Fixed spelling. Thanks doublehelix.]
So you want to know who’s responsible for the Twilight Realm, that thing that’s wracking so much havoc upon Hyrule? Here’s a big shocker… it’s not Ganondorf… not unless Ganondorf has another name he’s going by these days. No, it seems there’s a new gunslinger in town, and we’re all going to have dates with him very soon.
If that’s all you want to know, I advise you to leave this post now. Want to know a little story? Continue reading.
We first see the person who is responsible for the Twilight Realm during a flashback rather early in the game. For a good while, the only name that we have for this nefarious baddie is “The King of Twilight,” a rather obvious name for the main villain of this game, but that’s not enough to really know anything about him. With a getup that resembles something of a disguise… and a name that really is more of a title… well, who knows who he is?
But around the 9½-hour mark, Midna comes clean with you and starts to reveal a little bit more of what she knows. After all, as a creator of the Twilight Realm, she should be in the know about this guy, yes? Perhaps getting past two dungeons and getting two very important items for her is enough for Midna to repay the favour in kind and trust you just a little bit.
So she drops a name. And it’s not one we’ve heard of before.
At this point in the game, this is about all we have. We don’t know who Zant really is or what he’s really trying to do in Hyrule. We won’t know what exactly the Twilight Realm is nor why he covered Hyrule in the junk. We won’t even know his favourite colour! All we do know is that, as much as Midna likes the Twilight, she doesn’t like Zand too well. Not that Midna really is fond of Zelda, but in a choice between the best of “two evils,” well… her pick is obvious. Or rather, not really that obvious; we don’t know why she and Zant had a falling out, just that they did.
And now you know what I know.Follow This Entry | Leave a Response | Trackback
