Through The Legend of Zelda series, Link is depicted as a child, teenager, or young adult of the Hylian race, originating from the fictional land of Hyrule. Link often travels through Hyrule, defeating creatures, evil forces, and the series' primary antagonist, Ganon, while attempting to save Princess Zelda and Hyrule. To defeat Ganon, Link usually requires the mystic Master Sword and Light Arrows, or a similar legendary weapon, obtained after many trials and battles. In the course of his journey, he will typically acquire various other magical objects or items, including musical instruments and weaponry. Within the lore of the franchise, Link is the soul of a legendary hero that, throughout history, is reincarnated with an seemingly ordinary boy or man when the need arises for a new reincarnation to defeat forces of evil. No definitive blood-connection has to exist between the different incarnations, however In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the Link within that game becomes the ancestor of all Hyrulians, and also seems to originate the hero's green garbs. Skyward Sword prequel manga published in Hyrule Historia, an older incarnation of the hero who aides the goddess Hylia is shown, however the hero is not definitively identified "Link".
