The Legend of Zelda - Characters
A young hero who's goal is to gather the triforce shards and rescue the Princess of Hyrule, Zelda. He seems small but has great strength, and the courage of a true hero. Link never says anything himself - his thoughts are left pretty much to the speculation of the player.
The Princess of Hyrule, and the heir to the throne. She is kidnapped by Ganon, but she splits the Triforce into eight parts and scatters them accross Hyule in order to prevent Ganon using the Triforce's power for his evil deeds.
Ganon, the prince of darkness, is a grotesque monster who plans to utilize the power of the Triforce in his own twisted, dark way in order to cause chaos in Hyrule. It is Link's job to gather the Triforce and slay the beast once and for all!
