The titular character of the Legend of Zelda series. Although the details of her background can vary in different games, Zelda is (almost) always depicted as the daughter of the royal family of Hyrule, and is the possessor and guardian of the Triforce of Wisdom.
Depictions of Zelda have varied over the years, but her most common character designs show her with blonde hair or brown hair, blue eyes or green eyes, pointy ears, and a gown of white and lavender with gold accents, often decorated with Triforce symbols and other Hyrulian iconography. She is usually depicted as being the same age as Link, the child protagonist of the games, or slightly older; a few games have shown her as a young adult woman.
