Link is the main protagonist of The Legend of Zelda series of Video Games from Nintendo. His adventures tend to rely on saving a country such as Hyrule, or another character, such as Zelda from varying dark fates.
Character History and NatureEdit
Link is often called by one source or another to embark on dangerous quests from a young age, as young as 10 or 12 years old, forcing him to leave his home for extensive periods of time. However, he also shows much bravery for such an age even without the help of magic, in some cases.
Link is often referred to as a hero, giving him certain titles based on the Nature of his quest and his methods of completing it(ie. Hero of Time, Hero of Winds). In some cases he is bound by a powerful magic force, which he bears as proof of his nature. This Magical force is quite often referred to as the Triforce, an ancient relic, said to hold the powers of the three goddesses who created the series most prominent location, Hyrule.
As of the release of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, there has been 14 official releases of the series, in which Nintendo confirms holds more than one incarnation of Link. If the Stories inside the series is to be interpreted by which games are written to be direct sequels of there predecessors, approximately 5 "Links" can be counted.
