Song of the Stormwind Ark
Learning Location and Uses
The "Song of the Stormwind Ark" details the story of the Stormwind Ark, which is said to have saved Rito Village in the distant past. It has been transcribed in the Rito Records, which can be found at the Hebra Trailhead Lodge.
When Link first arrives in Rito Village, he will find Notts, Genli, and Molli practicing their singing together. If he approaches him, Genli and Molli reveal that they hope the "Song of the Stormwind Ark" will help save Rito Village from the blizzard it is suffering. Notts then asks Link if he wants to listen to them sing. Should Link agree to hear the song, Notts states that they love to have an audience.
Although many of the Rito look to the "Song of the Stormwind Ark" for hope during the Blizzard, Tulin believes them to be foolish. During the "Tulin of Rito Village" Main Quest, Tulin is reminded of the song upon seeing the silhouette of a giant ship at the center of the Blizzard. When he and Link reach the Wind Temple, he is shocked to find that the song was recounting historical events.
Once, a god fell from heaven, stilling the Hebra Winds.
The heavens grew lifeless, just as the air below thinned.
With the world in upheaval, we pledged to help the lord.
A line of ships soaring, built as a passage skyward.
The god ascended to heaven, leaving behind an ark.
Its winds brought us new life, thanks to its great, divine spark.

- "It's a song for children, mind you. Few adults still parrot it as if it were true. Still, every now and then, you get reports among the Rito of a flying ship. Combine that with the blizzard caused by this Upheaval, and it seems less far-fetched. Even if the Song of the Stormwind Ark is just a children's rhyme, I suspect that there is something lurking high in the sky. But the air is so turbulent now that no Rito can fly close enough to look into it. This is why I saw we need to make careful preparations to find the truth, but Tulin... He thinks we cling to that song out of cowardice." — Teba (Tears of the Kingdom)
