Dalia is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.(BotW)[3][name references needed]


Breath of the Wild

Dalia is a Gerudo child who lives in Gerudo Town. At night, she sleeps at Lorn's Fruit Stand, which is a Stall owned by her mother, Lorn.[2] According to Lorn, Dalia loves Fruitcake, so she makes it every once in a while.[4]

When Link first enters Gerudo Town, he can find Dalia and the other three children speaking to each other as a group as the sun sets. Kalani asks them if they are in love.[5] Makure then responds that she wants to attend Ashai's class when she grows up and get married.[6] Pearle then comments that Ashai is unmarried and wonders what that means.[7] Lastly, Dalia says that she heard being in love is the sweetest thing in the world, but she does not think she can handle something sweeter than berries.[8]

After this, Link can find Dalia in the empty plot near The Noble Canteen. She asks what someone from out of town is doing in a place like this.[9] When Link asks what she is doing, Dalia reveals that she is planning on starting a fruit garden in the plot, though she is keeping it from her mother for now.[10] Once the garden is made, she will be able to eat as mush fruit as she wants.[11] However, she has not yet decided what she will plant.[12] Despite this, Dalia promises to share some of what she grows with Link.[13]

After Link has calmed Divine Beast Vah Naboris and started "The Thunder Helm" Side Quest, he can find Dalia crying in the empty plot. Dalia explains that she wanted to plant an orchard in the plot, going so far as to pick up the Trash, pull the weeds, and till the ground.[14] Unfortunately, the Water from the nearby trough is unusable due to a flow of Trash into it.[15] Without the Water, her orchard will not be able to flourish.[16] After she is finished speaking, Link will receive "The Mystery Polluter" Side Quest.

Link finds out that the source of the Trash is a Gerudo named Calyban, who enjoys eating Hydromelons on the walls of Gerudo Town and throwing the rinds into the waterway. This pollutes the water trough that Dalia for her orchard. Link convinces Calyban to stop by giving her 10 Wildberries.[17][18] Once Calyban receives her Wildberries, though, she feels bad for Dalia, so she helps clean up the trash.[19]

When Link returns to Dalia, Calyban has already cleaned up her Trash and left.[20] Dalia gives Link a Hydromelon that was given to her by "the lady who cleaned it up" as a thank you for caring about her.[21] Dalia claims that Calyban also gave her some Wildberries, which has inspired her to make her garden into a Wildberry patch.[22] She tells Link he can come eat the Wildberries anytime he likes, after which "The Mystery Polluter" Side Quest will be complete.[23]

Link can come back later to find that three Wildberry plants have grown there. According to Dalia, when she planted the first Wildberry, more began to sprout from the ground.[24] Despite her work clearing up the garbage and preparing the garden, she thinks the first Wildberry must have been magic.[25] In her sleep, she even talks about eating Wildberries and other fruit.[26][27]
