Buliara is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[4][5][6]


Breath of the Wild

Buliara is the Gerudo captain of the guard who accompanies Lady Riju, Chief of the Gerudo.[7][8] Throughout the day, she can be found in the Royal Palace of Gerudo Town. She is known as the best spear master in Gerudo Town.[9] Despite this, she carries a Golden Claymore.

Riju notes in her diary that Buliara was the one who informed her of her mother's passing and her new role as Chief.[3] When Riju left Gerudo Town to investigate Divine Beast Vah Naboris, Buliara was the one who rescued her when she got too close.[10] Since then, she has not left Riju's side, blaming herself for the theft of the Thunder Helm.[11]

Link first meets Buliara at the start of the "Divine Beast Vah Naboris" Main Quest when he first enters the Royal Palace disguised as a woman. Buliara will stop Link when he approaches Riju on her throne and demands him to explain his business here.[12] After Riju speaks to Link for some time, she will mention to Buliara that she recalls her mother speaking of a fallen swordsman that was placed into a deep sleep by the Princess of Hyrule when the Great Calamity happened.[13] She also recalls that the swordsman's name was Link, hesitantly wondering if the Link before her is that same swordsman.[14]

If Link is not carrying the legendary sword, Buliara will point out that Link is not carrying the sword from those same legends.[15] After more conversation, Buliara suddenly notices that Link is actually a man.[16] Riju states that it is a great crime for a man to enter Gerudo Town, but she dismisses this due to Link's status a Champion.[17] Riju soon reasons that if Link truly is a Champion, then he may be able to enter Divine Beast Vah Naboris and calm its anger.[18]

Buliara urges Riju not to trust a stranger with such an important task,[19] suggesting that he prove himself worthy by recovering the stolen Thunder Helm.[20] Riju agrees with this suggestion, and Buliara assures her that recovering the Thunder Helm should be an easy task for Link if he is truly a Champion.[21][22] Buliara tells Link that Captain Teake in the Barracks nearby can tell him about the thieves who stole the Thunder Helm.[23]

If Link speaks to Buliara again, she asks him what is wrong and says that if he is truly the Champion of legend, the task should be simple.[24] She then reiterates that he should see Captain Teake to learn more about the thieves and comments that this is his chance to show them what he is capable of.[25][26]

When Link returns with the Thunder Helm, Buliara will direct him to Riju, saying she is on the second floor.[27] She notes the special permission he has received to be able to enter Riju's Bedroom, and she reminds him to be on his best behavior.[28] During this time, Riju notes in the Chief's Diary how Buliara trusts in Link's abilities and does not mind that he is a man, which is a surprise to her.[29]

After Link calms Divine Beast Vah Naboris, Buliara tells him that they are indebted to him.[30] She also informs Link that Gerudo Town is his ally now,[31] but she warns him that he should still hide that he is a man.[32]

When The Champions' Ballad Downloadable Content Pack is active, Link can ask Buliara about the Sacred Orb, an Ancient Orb guarded by the Gerudo. Though she is shocked he knows about it,[33] Buliara admits that it has been stolen by the Yiga Clan.[34] She also shares rumors that the Yiga Clan have begun regrouping at the Yiga Clan Hideout.[35]

Link can recreate the Champion's Arms if they are broken by speaking to Buliara.[36] She will make a new Scimitar of the Seven if Link can supply her with one Diamond, five pieces of Flint, and a Gerudo Scimitar.[37] To make a new Daybreaker, Buliara requires one Diamond, five pieces of Flint, and a Gerudo Shield.[38]
