Hawa Koth is a character in Breath of the Wild.[2]


Hawa Koth is a Sheikah Monk who serves the Goddess Hylia. Following the first Great Calamity and the ostracism of the Sheikah 10,000 years prior to Breath of the Wild, Hawa Koth became a Monk and constructed an Ancient Shrine to help prepare Link against the threat of Calamity Ganon.[3][1]

Following Link's Slumber of Restoration in the Shrine of Resurrection, the Hawa Koth Shrine is activated and can then be entered by someone bearing a Sheikah Slate.[4] When Link enters the Shrine, he is greeted by the Monk and is offered the Shrine's Trial in the name of Hylia.[2] If Link completes the Trial, Hawa Koth praises him and rewards the Hylian Champion with a Spirit Orb.[5] With their role fulfilled, Hawa Koth wishes Link well as their body fades away.[6]
