Rose is a Gerudo cheif in a removed compound from the rest of the tribe. She is considered naive and unfit to command a faction of soldiers, but was given the role out of necessity when their prince ran off to help impoverished people. She’s sweet and understanding and admires her prince who doesn’t follow the expectations of the clan. She can become leader material when the situation calls for it. Her right hand is Juleka.
Juleka is the right had to her cheif, Rose. She is timid and specializes in blending in and sneaking around. She uses this to her advantage to indimidate the rest of the troops into obeying their soft-hearted cheif. She shows interest in the Noir clan, and it is rumored her father was a Noir clansmen.
What was the most interesting thing you saw during your time in Hyrule?
The overall upbeatness of everyone and everything there was actually quite surprising. The people of Hyrule are happily ignorant. They’re never informed of the problems going on. It’s interesting, and sad.
Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild will take place between
Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker.
However, it isn’t the OoT we know. After the events of OoT,
Link goes back in time to live out his life from childhood in an evil-free
world, but instead gets thrown into an alternate reality (Majora’s Mask). Link
starts out in MM with Epona and looking for Navi, who doesn’t exist in this
reality. Maybe Link remembers the events of OoT or maybe things are just
familiar to him. Some of the OoT characters exist in Termina, but the only
connections they have to their OoT counterparts are same or similar appearance,
and perhaps the same name. MM ends with Link defeating the evil in Termina and
heading off on a new journey.
The focus must shift back to Hyrule. With Link having
seemingly vanished from Hyrule, somehow the evil is reawakened, and the
surrounding lands are in turn destroyed by Ganon[dorf].
This is obviously leading into Breath of the Wild. Hundreds of
years have passed (maybe even more) and the land has been reduced to rubble and
overgrowth with Bokoblins, Moblins, and other unknown enemies running freely.
Perhaps after years of travel through Termina Link has found a way back to Hyrule by
magic means? Maybe upon returning to Hyrule, he is weak and is found by the
Sheikah (or someone who has followed the Sheikah, which when the first images/videos of BotW were released is what I had
thought). They are aware that he is not ready to fight Ganon[dorf], or even prepared. He is placed in some sort of deep sleep (as he usually is) to regain his strength. Time in Termina seems to be wonky anyway, so it is possible that ten years in Termina could be hundreds in Hyrule.
ANYWAY. We obviously don’t know much yet about BotW, so I can’t give any solid details to back that rambling up. But now we can look at Wind Waker.
Wind Waker opens as follows (I break it down in bold as we go along to avoid repetition later);
is but one of the legends of which the people speak…
ago, there existed a kingdom where a golden power (Triforce) lay hidden. It was a
prosperous land blessed with green forests (Lost Woods), tall mountains (Death Mountain, etc.), and peace. (This seems to point to Hyrule)
one day, a man of great evil (Ganon[dorf]) found the golden power and took it for himself.
With its strength at his command, he spread darkness across the kingdom. But
then, when all hope had died, and the hour of doom seemed at hand…
young boy clothed in green (Link) appeared as if from nowhere. Wielding the blade of
evil’s bane (Master Sword), he sealed the dark one away and gave the land light.
boy, who traveled through time to save the land (This is clearly talking about OoT at this point), was known as the Hero of Time.
The boy’s tale was passed down through generations until it became legend… (A long time has passed between the original events of OoT and when the evil returns, so this could be either before or during the events of BotW)
But then, a day came when a fell wind began to blow across the kingdom. The
great evil that all thought had been forever sealed away by the hero once again
crept forth from the depths of the earth, eager to resume its dark designs.
people believed that the Hero of Time would again come to save them… But the
hero did not appear (Link was probably lost in Termina at this point). Faced by an onslaught of evil, the people could do nothing
but appeal to the Gods. In their last hour, as doom drew nigh, they left their
future in the hands of fate.
became of that kingdom? None remain who know.
memory of the kingdom vanished, but its legend survived on the wind’s breath.
On a certain island, it became customary to garb boys in green when they came
of age. Clothed in the green of fields, they aspired to find heroic blades and
cast down evil. The elders wished only for the youths to know courage like the
hero of legend. (ZeldaWiki)
^This is filled with so many excellent things that point to events following the defeat of Ganon[dorf] in OoT eventually leading to WW, with the possibility that BotW could fit into that gap of time where Ganon[dorf] had been defeated again and then resurfaces in WW.
So after the events of (or during) BotW, perhaps the great flood occurred and we begin to develop the new water world (sans Kevin Costner) in which WW is set.
In WW, there is a moment where we run into the Deku
Tree and he says that we look familiar to him, which is why he speaks in the old language. This is possible that either A) he is the Deku Tree Sprout from OoT or B) a descendant of the Deku Tree Sprout who was young when the Kokiri were still around (which is totally plausible if hundreds plus years have passed and trees can be old as shit).
Little things to looks at; the Ritos in WW are thought to be decedents of the Zora, and Koroks the Kokiri.
There are also similar enemies around in WW that we have seen in previews for BotW.
“Jabun” is the water spirit in WW, which can be argued bears a similar name to the Great Jabu Jabu in OoT. Link’s door on Outset Island (as well as all of the doors) have this symbol, which seems to be some kind of hybrid triforce/Sheikah symbol. There are also more things that I have not come across yet (chide me, I am playing WW for the first time) so I will continue to add on when I find something fitting.
This theory does not necessarily follow the official LoZ
timeline released by Nintendo. Somebody could have also connected these dots
already. I have no idea. @just-spring and I were playing Wind Waker recently
and the opening made us think there might be more to it (even if it hadn’t been
originally planned by Nintendo). Please please feel free to add onto this
theory and please feel free to correct me on anything I may have made a mistake
on. Also, I have literally read no recent BotW theories, so if this is already a theory circulating, I apologize. I have loved this series my entire life and have a deep connection to it.
