Linkle: Uhn

Townsman: Heeeeeey, Linkle!

Townsman: There’s trouble! Apparently Hyrule Castle is being attacked by a Demon!

Linkle: What!? REALLY!?

Townsman: We’ve received word that even Zelda is engaged in battle but if the Demon gets to our village….

Linkle Changes and bursts through the door

Townsman: that outfit is … ?

Linkle: I’ve decided! I will defeat this Demon!

Linkle: It’s just like my grandmother once told me! I am the reincarnated hero after all!

Townsman: Just because you’ve always liked to pretend to be the hero…

Linkle: LOOK!

Linkle: Surely this compass passed down from my grandmother is proof that I am the hero!

Linkle: I will protect the peace in Hyrule!


Cucco shepherd Linkle was from a small village where she lived leisurely.

From the time she was small she has believed that she is the reincarnated hero.

One day a rumor had spread to her village that a Demon was attacking Hyrule Castle.

When Linkle heard this she donned a dashing green outfit.

With the old compass passed down from her grandmother and her special crossbow in hand she set out from the village.

Relying on a map and a compass, it was Linkle’s aim to reach Hyrule castle but…

Soon she found herself lost, wandering around in a forest with a suspicious atmosphere.

Then a demon child wearing a mysterious mask appeared and robbed Linkle of her treasured compass.

That compass is surely the mark of the hero and she absolutely must get it back!

Linkle’s first trial was about to begin.
