Purah is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[14][15][16]


Breath of the Wild

Purah is the director of the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab, where she works with her assistant Symin. Her research and experimentation with an anti-aging Rune caused her to grow younger, but due to underestimating the Rune's potency she reverted to the body and mentality of a 6-year-old. Though she appears as a young girl,[17] she is around 124 years old.[18] She is the older sister of Impa and the oldest Sheikah alive,[11][19] save for Monk Maz Koshia.

When first approached by Link, she gives him a greeting and asks if he has come for the director of the Lab.[20] If he says yes, she claims that Symin is the director and asks Link not to bother him long.[21] She does take a moment to notice that Link appears to be a traveler on an adventure.[22][23] Should Link say that he'd spoken to the director, she pretends to be pleased and hopes that he remembers the Lab fondly.[24]

Once Link has been informed of her true identity, she confirms it.[25] Purah asks him about any dreams he may have had during his Slumber of Restoration, calling him "Linky" and pointing out that he has not changed.[26] She is happy to see him well,[27] but his blank look helps her realize that he no longer recognizes her.[28][29][30] Purah reveals that she was the one to originally take Link to the Shrine of Resurrection.[31] She asks Link again if he cannot remember her and his response prompts her to pull out a notebook to take notes.[32] Purah admits that she does this often and asks Link if he has any questions.[33]

Naturally, Link is confused by her appearance. At first, Purah claims his observation is rude, but realizes that he has a good point.[34] She explains that it is due to a faulty experiment and asks him not to look into it in her Diary.[35] She pushes the topic back to Calamity Ganon and Link's quest.[36] Purah explains that she intends to help him by fixing the Sheikah Slate.[37] If Link asks her to repeat what she said, Purah pulls out her notebook again to note it before telling him to pay attention.[38] Should Link decide to refuse, Purah is at first annoyed, but then decides to give him the time to change his mind.[39]

Once Link agrees to Purah's help, she asks him to run a quick errand.[40] Link seems to give her an odd look and she asks if he thought she would help him for free.[41] If Link admits that he did, she will take more notes.[42] If he says he did not expect that, Purah decides that he is surprisingly considerate for his age.[43] Purah explains the errand for him, stating that she requires their furnace lit to restore his Runes.[44][45] She quietly wonders if people still use the same language that she does.[46]

Once she gives Link his task, he may ask her about a number of things. Should he ask about the ancient furnace, she will tell him where it is located.[47] Questioning her about the Blue Flame itself will prompt her to give him advice on how to get it back to Laboratory.[48] If he asks her who she is, she gives her name again and uses her catchphrase.[49] However, she realizes that Link is looking for her true age and shoots down any hope of getting it from her, telling him not to ask her too many questions about herself.[50] Whenever she's done answering a question, Purah will ask if Link has any others for her.[51] Purah will mention that there is a Torch nearby that Link can use in his task.[52]

Link can actually light the furnace before ever speaking to Purah. As soon they speak, Purah makes it clear that she is surprised to see him.[53] At first, she tries out her new catchphrase on him, but realizes this is not the time.[54] She finally asks Link if he was the one to bring the Blue Flame up to the Lab.[55] Once Link admits to being the culprit, Purah believes that he woke from his Slumber of Restoration in fairly good condition.[56] Purah then introduces herself and reveals that she knows the Sheikah Slate is in need of repair.[57] When Link confirms this, she is pleased that she predicted the issue, but informs the hero that she has a number of questions to ask first.[58] She then moves into the usual dialogue.

Once this is completed, she will add the Camera Rune and the Sheikah Sensor to the Sheikah Slate.[59] Purah then asks Link to take a picture of her.[60][61] Link can ask her about the new Camera function. The director will tell him how Zelda had once used it and how to create an image with it, reminding him of her request for a self-portrait.[62] Asking her about a picture will prompt Purah to define it for him,[63] mentioning the Hyrule Compendium and advising him take as many pictures as possible.[64] If he says he needs a moment to prepare the Camera, she tells him not to worry, but makes it clear she is looking forward to it.[65]

When she sees the picture Link takes of her, Purah is very pleased with her appearance.[66] For a moment, she is too overwhelmed to continue the conversation.[67] Once she snaps out of it, Purah takes notice of Zelda's excessive use of the Camera and realizes that Link was likely with the Princess at each of the locations in the pictures.[68] While Link's memory loss proves troublesome, she declares that the newly found photos may help him recover it.[69] To this end, Purah sends the hero back to Impa in order to learn more.[70] Before he sets out, the director asks him to return later with Ancient Materials,[71] promising a reward for delivering them to either her or her companion in research, Robbie.[72]

She believes Robbie is her subordinate,[73] and hasn't seen him in 100 years despite being research companions.[74] After the Calamity, Robbie and Purah purposefully set up their labs in different places so that if one of them died the other would still be around to help Link when he awoke.[75]

She will upgrade the Sheikah Sensor, Remote Bombs, and Stasis runes in exchange for 3 Ancient Screws, 3 Ancient Shafts, and 3 Ancient Cores, respectively.

Tears of the Kingdom

Purah is the founder and leader of Lookout Landing, as well as the authority that the Zonai Survey Team reports to.[citation needed] She has also become a teacher to Josha.[76] After Calamity Ganon was defeated, Purah and Robbie collaborated to create the Purah Pad, naming it after herself.[77] She hoped that it would assist in Hyrule's recovery, and she gave their prototype to Zelda to use.[78] Purah has written four volumes of her Diary, which she did to prevent all of her writings from being read by others.[79] The volumes can be found in her Room at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab,[80] Paya's Room at the Chief's Hall,[81] the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab,[82] and her Research Lab at Lookout Landing.[83]

Recently, Purah has returned her age to that of a 20 year-old, since she was frustrated when others treated her as a child.[84] This is the age she was when she worked at the Royal Ancient Lab with Robbie, and as a result, she has had a dream about that time.[85] She recalls that their experiments caused many explosions, but Zelda and Impa covered for them.[86] Purah has also found it easier to reach high places and stay up late researching, and she notes that her skin is perfect.[87]

When Gloom began to seep up from Beneath Hyrule Castle, Purah established Lookout Landing so that she could observe it from a distance.[88] After a stairway leading to the source of the Gloom was found, Zelda volunteered to investigate before Purah could ask her.[89] Despite believing Zelda and Link to be qualified, Purah felt dread about sending them down there.[90] Since the Upheaval started not long after they left, Purah feared that the two events were related.[91] After Zelda and Link disappeared, Purah has been worried, and she mobilized the Monster-Control Crew to search Hyrule Castle for them.[92][93] At Paya's request, she also sent the Zonai Survey Team to investigate the Ring Ruins that fell on Kakariko Village.[94][95] Purah wrote the Notes on the Upheaval, which documents her initial impressions.

Purah's introduction

When Josha spots Link at Lookout Landing during the "To the Kingdom of Hyrule" Main Quest, she calls out to Purah to inform her of his arrival.[96] She rushes out of the Research Lab and asks Link where he has been.[97] Straightening her goggles, she asks Link if he is a ghost.[98] She then notices his new Right Arm, calling it interesting.[99] Pushing her goggles up, Purah decides to slow down and asks Link what happened to him.[100]

Purah recites Link's story, believing that their encounter with the mummy marked the start of the Upheaval.[101] Looking up at the Great Sky Island, Purah is shocked when she realizes that is where Link came from.[102] She also wonders if the individual Link met, Rauru, could be the first King of Hyrule, since they share a name.[103] However, she is certain that the mummy Zelda and Link met must have a connection to the Upheaval.[104] Since Link heard Zelda's voice, Purah is concerned that she could be trapped below Hyrule Castle and in need of help.[105] She sends Link to meet with Hoz, who is in charge of the search at Hyrule Castle, to help find Zelda.[106] Although the mummy is a concern, Purah declares that locating Zelda is more important, and she tells Link she is counting on him.[107] At this point, "To the Kingdom of Hyrule" will be completed, and the "Crisis at Hyrule Castle" Main Quest will begin. If Link talks to Purah again, she urges him to meet with Hoz and find Zelda quickly.[108]

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity


  • Most concept art shows Purah with brown eyes, the same as her sister and great niece. This was changed to red in the final version of Breath of the Wild.


Purah's name is derived from her Japanese name プルア (Purua), an anagram of アプル (apuru, literally "apple"). It could also potentially be derived from prune, which is more evident in her Spanish name. Both fit with the pattern of most Sheikah in Breath of the Wild having names derived from fruits.

  20. "Good morning. This is the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab. Do you have some business with the director?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  21. "The director is in the back. A terribly busy person, that one. Please try to keep it brief." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  22. "A traveler, eh?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  23. "Judging by your equipment and that gleam in your eye... I'd say you must be in the midst of an epic journey." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)

  26. "Anywaaay. Linky! Do you remember any dreams from your time in the Slumber of Restoration? You don't look like you've changed a bit in the last 100 years, but SOMETHING must have happened in all that time!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  27. "Well, no matter! I'm just happy you're still in one piece." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  28. "...Linky? What's with that look? You do still remember me, right?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  29. "[I remember...] Hmm... I heard the hesitation in your voice." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  30. "[I don't remember.] Really?! Well! I'm so shocked I don't know if I'll ever be able to recover from this!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  31. "Even though, 100 years ago, I took you to the Shrine of Resurrection after Calamity Ganon fatally wounded you... Even though I was the one who put you safely into the Slumber of Restoration..." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  32. "Hmm... As expected. After 100 years in the Slumber of Restoration, subject...has...lost...all...memories. Noted!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  33. "Oh, sooooorry... I have a bad habit of taking notes rather abruptly like that. It's a charming quirk, isn't it? Anyhoo... Do you have any questions for me?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  34. "[Aren't you a child?] How very rude! Hm, or perhaps it's not rude at all... I suppose that's actually a rather logical conclusion to jump to." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  35. "The truth is, I look this way because of a failed experiment. Well, I say "failed," but...in some ways, it was a success. I documented the full affair in my diary upstairs. BUT! The whole thing is embarrassing, so I insist you refrain from reading it!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  36. "Anyway. Enough about that! Back to the topic at hand! Here you are, after 100 years! Here to defeat Calamity Ganon, who is growing in strength with every passing moment! And to rescue our beloved Princess Zelda! That is, if you've got the courage to try." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  37. "And to help the one true hero, I, the one and only Purah, will restore the basic functions missing from the Sheikah Slate! Aaaand what do you say to thaaaat?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  38. "[Once more?] Hmmm... I see, I see. Post-Slumber of Restoration, the subject's verbal comprehension skills have...somewhat...atrophied. Noted! This is the really important bit, so listen up!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  39. "Oh, REALLY? Hmmm... Post Slumber of Restoration, subject has a tendency to give...uncomfortable...responses...to questions. Noted! Well, if you change your mind... You know where to find me." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  40. "I knew you'd say that! All right, then. First I need you to run an errand for me." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  41. "... What's with that look on your face? You didn't think I'd fix your Sheikah Slate for free, did you?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  42. "[I did.] Hmmm... Post Slumber of Restoration, subject is plagued by...presumptuous...tendencies. Noted!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  43. "Hmm. You're pretty considerate for a young person. But then...I suppose that's because you're actually over 100 years old!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  44. "Let me explain what this errand entails. You know the unlit furnace on the wall just outside this laboratory? Could you please bring the blue flame from the ancient furnace in town? Oh, and also use it to light our furnace? This sweet little Guidance Stone will start working once you do that, allowing us to restore your missing runes!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  45. "OK then. I'm counting on you for that blue flame!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  46. "Huh... I wonder if young women these days still say things like "sweet" and "little." Ah, well. I suppose it doesn't matter anyway." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  47. "[Ancient furnace?] You'll find the ancient furnace on the high ground behind Reede's house. As soon as you leave this laboratory, head left until you're at the cliff's edge. Then make use of your scope! You'll see a blue flame. That's the ancient furnace." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  48. "Blue flame makes it sound fancy, but it's really just the same as a regular flame. If it gets wet, that's that. It'll help to light the village lanterns you'll see on your way back here and to avoid steep inclines." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  49. "I'm Purah! Snappity snap!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  50. "Hm? You weren't asking about my name? Oh, I get it. You want to know my age, don't you? Well, Linky, I must say... It's not polite to ask a young maiden such as myself her age! And also don't ask me why I know so many ancient terms! And ALSO don't ask about my diary upstairs!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  51. "Do you have any other questions?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  52. "When bringing back the blue flame from the ancient furnace, you may find it helpful to use a torch. There should be one at the entrance of this house. Feel free to use it." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  53. "Whaaaaa-?! Linky?! Is it really you?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  54. "Snappity... SNAP! No, no, no! Now is not the time for this... The Guidance Stone is suddenly working again, and now Linky has arrived..." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  55. "Hmmm... Say, Linky! Did you, by any chance, happen to light the furnace with a blue flame?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  56. "[That's true, but...] If you figured out how to do that without being told... You must've come out of the Slumber of Restoration in good shape!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  57. "Oh! Yes, I forgot to introduce myself. I am the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab's distinguished director... ♪Purah!♪ Snappity snap! Ah, yes. It seems I spilled the beans all by myself about my role as the true director of this place. My apologies, Linky. It seems you have yet to fully grasp the specifics of the situation at hand. I'll just speak bluntly, how about? You were instructed by Impa to come here to have your Sheikah Slate repaired, correct?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  58. "[Precisely.] ♪Called it!♪ And we'll get to that, but first I have some questions!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  59. "Aaaand...it's done! So?! Is it all fixed up now? Hmmm, lessee here... Which one is it... Camera, Hyrule Compendium, album... Yep, looks good!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  60. "So, I know this is sudden, but hear me out. Take a picture of me with the Camera! Oh, and don't forget to lemme see it!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  61. "Snap! How's the picture taking going? Did you get a cute pic of me with the Camera?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  62. "[Camera?] It's one of the Sheikah Slate runes, silly. Princess Zelda used it long ago. Use it the same way as Cryonis and the like. Just equip it and SNAP! Just like that! When you take a picture, you must be sure to center the subject. Got it? You can also use the zoom function if you want. Just make sure I look cute!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  63. "[Pic?] A picture is an image that is a perfect likeness of its subject. All you need to create one is a Camera." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  64. "Pictures of animals and objects will be automatically registered in the Hyrule Compendium. In other words, you should basically go and take pictures of anything and everything!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  65. "[One moment.] It's fine, really. No need to stress. Just make sure you take a cute one of me! And soon!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  66. "[I took one!] Oooh, I can't wait to see it! Lemme see, lemme see! Hm? My, who IS this beautiful young creature?" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  67. "... Huh? Oh, I guess that's my cue! Sorry, I kind of lost it there. It wasn't on purpose." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  68. "Hmmm... Ah, it's not just a pretty girl in these images. Yes, there are also some old landscape photos stored in the album. I knew Princess Zelda had made frequent use of the Camera feature, but this... Hey, Linky! It dawns on me that you were Princess Zelda's appointed knight, which means... there's a strong possibility that you accompanied her to all of the places where these pictures where taken." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  69. "Oh...right. The “lost memory” thing could prove troublesome. But don't lose hope! It just means these pictures could be the missing piece to help restore your lost memories!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  70. "If my hunch is correct, I suggest you check in with Impa. She knows more about Princess Zelda than even I do!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  71. "... Oh, yeah! There's just one more thing I need from you! You don't have to worry about this until after you see Impa, but I want you to bring me back some ancient materials!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  72. "Bring them either to me or to Robbie at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. As if my joy weren't enough, if you bring us ancient materials, we'll give you something good as a reward. All right! Let's do this!" — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  73. "Robbie is my subordinate. There, I said it." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  74. "I think he's still up on the edge of Akkala researching Guardians... Haven't seen him in 100 years, though. So who knows." — Purah (Breath of the Wild)
  75. "All three of us couldn't stay together, of course. We couldn't risk Calamity Ganon getting all of us in one strike. If that happened, there'd be no one left to deliver Princess Zelda's message to Link when he recovered and woke up... We had to ensure at least one of us would be able to talk to him." — Robbie's Memoirs (Breath of the Wild)
  76. "No way, no how! You can't do that! The Depths are far too vast for you to explore on your own. And we've only barely begun to look into them. I'd love to go gallivanting around down there too—who knows what wonders are at the bottom of those chasms! But no matter how wondrous they may be, it's far too dangerous for you. I'm not about to allow our young prodigy to go wandering around somewhere so unknown, so foul! If anything were to happen to Purah's favorite student, it'd be the end for me! The END!" — Robbie (Tears of the Kingdom)
  77. "An engineer whose eccentric style adds a lot to his reputation as a wild genius.

    He once helped Link from his research facility at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. Since then, he's moved to the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab to help Purah develop the Purah Pad. Robbie thinks he did much of the work on the device, so he's a bit grumbly that it's not named after him.
    " — Character Profiles (Tears of the Kingdom)
  78. "I designed the Purah Pad to be capable of various experiments in hopes of carrying some of the burden for Hyrule's recovery. Robbie built a prototype right away, and we asked the princess to use it in her work across Hyrule. Princess Zelda learned quickly and was quite delighted to capture test pictures with the camera. The camera was intended for use in investigations, but it's possible it could also be useful in everyday life. Perhaps after the recovery, a time will come when everyone has their very own Purah Pad. Hee-hee, just imagine!" — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  79. "I've decided to store this diary in four volumes. That way, if a nosy someone reads it, they'll only have a quarter of it." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  80. "I haven't decided where to hide three of my four diary volumes yet. Hmm. It seems like a good idea to hide one of them away in my own room... I've been at Lookout Landing a lot lately. Maybe I should go back to the lab in Hateno Village to place the diary." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  81. "Such ideas are the fruits of genius! As for the first one...I think I'll entrust it to...who else but Impa. Speaking of Impa, she's had a cute habit of hiding important items underneath things ever since she was a child. I have a fond memory of when she forgot about a hidden steamed bun beneath and cushion and then sat on it. Squashed flat! Diaries are flat to begin with, but as they are more important than a bun, I hope she finds a better hiding spot than a cushion." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  82. "Three volumes of my diary are hidden away now. I'll place the last one at the northeastern edge of Akkala.

    The lab there is perfect for hiding things. It's such a remote location, I'm sure no one will ever come across it!
    " — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  83. "I've decided where to hide the second volume of my diary. For the last two spots, maybe I'll shoot arrows at a map. Update: genius doesn't translate to being good with a bow. I ended up piercing the floor instead of the map. I'll just leave one volume here at Lookout Landing, as indicated by the arrows." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  84. "I grew frustrated with being treated like a child, so I resumed my age-booster experimentations in earnest. The anti-aging device reversed more than 100 years in an instant, so I reflected on that result and moderated the output. When I cautiously exposed myself to its rays, I returned to my 20-year-old form, just as I had hoped. Success!" — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  85. "Perhaps it's a side effect of returning to my previous form from 100 years ago, but I had a dream about that time.

    Back then, Robbie and I did whatever we pleased at the Royal Ancient Lab...
    " — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  86. "Age-reversal-experimentation explosions. Warping-failure explosions. Explosion-prevention-device explosions. I recall us trying things that likely would have gotten us tossed out if Impa and Princess Zelda hadn't covered for us. Impa scolded me often, but never too harshly. Those were fun times." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  87. "I'm so happy that I can once again reach high places without using a jetpack.

    My 20-year-old body doesn't suffer from sleepless nights researching. And what's more, my skin is perfect. No complaints!
    " — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  88. "[Lookout Landing?] This place is known as Lookout Landing. When the gloom began to seep up from under Hyrule Castle, Purah started observing it from here." — Drozer (Tears of the Kingdom)
  89. "A stairway leading deep beneath Hyrule Castle has been discovered. Even Princess Zelda didn't know about it, so it seems safe to assume it's a secret removed even from royal legend. We have confirmed that gloom emanates from that location, meaning something down there must be causing it. I appointed Princess Zelda and Link to investigate. Actually... It would be more accurate to say that Princess Zelda volunteered for the job before I had the chance." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  90. "I know beyond a doubt there is no team more qualified for such a task, and yet... I can't escape this feeling of dread." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  91. "The crater left by the castle's rise is still spewing gloom. It's kept us from making any progress with our investigation. We still don't know anything about where the princess and Link have gone. The Upheaval occurred very soon after Princess Zelda and Link left to explore beneath Hyrule Castle. I fear the two events are related..." — Purah's Diary (Tears of the Kingdom)
  92. "Don't answer that. Tell me later. For now, you should hurry and go talk to Purah. She's been in a tizzy ever since you and the princess disappeared. She's in the building with the telescope, up on the second floor. Go see her and give her some peace of mind, will ya?" — Robbie (Tears of the Kingdom)
  93. "Purah has given us orders to search thoroughly around Hyrule Castle. That's where we last had contact with Princess Zelda, so it seems the best starting point in the search. Anyway, Purah enlisted our monster-control crew to help out, so that's where our efforts are currently focused." — Gralens (Tears of the Kingdom)
  94. "We've started investigating the fallen ruins and the sky islands. Our best lead is a report from the chief of Kakariko Village that some unusual ruins and engraved slabs have fallen there. I decided to have the Zonai Survey Team work out of Kakariko Village in Necluda, southeast of Lookout Landing. The ruins that fell on Kakariko Village are massive. You can see them from all the way here at Lookout Landing." — Notes on the Upheaval (Tears of the Kingdom)
  95. "I told Purah of Lookout Landing about our village's situation. She said ring-shaped ruins are incredibly unusual. Realizing this could be a good opportunity to help the village, I made arrangements with the Zonai Survey Team at once." — Diary of a Chief (Tears of the Kingdom)
  96. "That hair! Those eyes! Duh... DUH... DOC! Doctor Puuuraaah! The swordsman! The swordsman has returned!" — Josha (Tears of the Kingdom)
  97. "OK... Now where have you been?!" — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  98. "Linky... You're not a ghost, are you?" — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  99. "That looks interesting..." — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  100. "One step at a time. What exactly happened?" — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  101. "So when you and Princess Zelda go beneath Hyrule Castle... you discover a mysterious mummy... which suddenly reanimates... Then Zelda falls into a fissure and vanishes. That must have been when the castle rose and the ruins fell... Then later you woke up on a sky island, saved by the arm that was stuck to the mummy. You get the Purah Pad from an unusual creature... and learn that your new arm belonged to someone named Rauru. The Master Sword disappears... You hear the princess's voice...and find your way here." — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  102. "... Then... Are you saying you came from up THERE?" — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  103. "This Rauru you met... I think that's what the first king of Hyrule was named. Are they one and the same? So much of this doesn't make sense—yet." — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  104. "But I'm certain that mummy you found under the castle must be related to the Upheaval. The castle rising up... The ruins falling down from the sky... The mummy must be connected to it somehow." — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  105. "And then there's the most important detail of all. You're sure that you heard the princess speak to you? And she gave you a clear message to find her? If that truly was the princess, then that means she's alive! Maybe she's trapped beneath the castle and needs help..." — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  106. "That settles it. I know you only just returned, Link... But I need you to meet with the search party up by Hyrule Castle. They've been searching tirelessly for you two. The captain in charge of the search is named Hoz. Work with him to find the princess as quickly as you can." — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  107. "I know that mummy may still be lurking somewhere around there. Which is concerning, to say the least, but we have more immediate problems to deal with right now. I'm counting on you, Linky!" — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
  108. "If the princess really did tell you to find her, then you'd better do so, and quickly! Captain Hoz has been leading a search below Hyrule Castle. Talk to him and see how you can help out. You must reach the princess quickly if she's there. I'm counting on you, Link!" — Purah (Tears of the Kingdom)
