Gleema is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[6][7]


Breath of the Wild

Gleema is a Hylian child who lives at South Akkala Stable. She is the youngest of Dmitri's three daughters and a fan of Insects.[1][8] As she walks around the Stable, she sings to herself.[9] During the night, she sleeps in one of the Beds inside the Stable.[10]

When Link first speaks to Gleema, she greets him excitedly.[11] If Link asks what is up, she admits that she has a secret and asks if he wants to know what it is.[12] She shares that her older sister, Jana, loves Armoranths.[13][14] However, she suddenly remembers that was a secret and realizes Jana will be mad at her.[15] She was not supposed to reveal Jana's love of Armoranths to anyone.[16]

If Link speaks to Jana with an Armoranth in his Inventory,[17] she will ask for it.[18] Once Link gives one to her, she decides that the two of them could get along.[19] Hearing that Link is a traveler, Jana reveals that she has a request for him.[20] Gleema is a fan of Insects,[8] and there is apparently one that she wants to see that she will not tell Jana about.[21] She thinks it is something Gleema can not talk about with the people she is closest to.[22] Jana asks Link to talk to Gleema about the Insect, so she can get it for her birthday.[23] This begins the "Little Sister's Big Request" Side Quest.

During the Side Quest, Gleema will have another secret to share with Link.[12][13] She shares that Jana hates dragonflies.[24] While reading a book, Gleema saw pictures of a Warm Darner, a Cold Darner, and an Electric Darner,[25] but Jana thought their eyes were creepy and got mad when Gleema showed them to her.[26] Once again, she realizes that was a secret she was not supposed to share.[15] She thinks Jana's fear came from how close the pictures were and that real dragonflies are cuter.[27] When she grows up, Gleema wants to travel and meet dragonflies.[28]

When Jana finds out that Gleema wants to see dragonflies, she is shocked.[29] She reasons that Gleema kept her love of them to herself since Jana despises them so much.[30] For Gleema's birthday, Jana asks Link to obtain the three dragonflies.[31] Since it is a surprise, she asks Link to say nothing to Gleema.[32]

Once Link has the three types of dragonflies, Jana becomes grossed out and has Link deliver them to Gleema for her.[33] Gleema is intrigued to hear that Link has something for her.[34] Finally seeing actual dragonflies,[35] Gleema asks if they are really for her.[36] In her excitement, she calls out to Jana to show her the dragonflies[37] However, Jana shrieks as her sister approaches.[38] As a reward, Jana gives Link a Silver Rupee.[39]

After receiving the dragonflies, Gleema thanks Link.[40] She then gives Link an update on Jana, Kaifa, and the Stable's Highland Sheep, saying they are all doing well.[41] She also starts referring to Link as "the dragonfly guy".[42]
