Uma is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[2][3] She is an elderly woman residing in Hateno Village.


Breath of the Wild

Uma spends her time during the day sitting on a stool by a large tree outside the local inn. She kindly greets Link and asks if he happens to be a traveler.[4] If Link admits that he is indeed traveling, Uma will be surprised.[5] She states that the village has become lively thanks to the peaceful state of the region.[6] Link can ask her to explain and she will tell him that in earlier years, Hateno was no place for farming.[7] She sadly recounts the devastation of Central Hyrule in the wake of Calamity Ganon.[8]

Speaking to her again allows Link to ask her about a number of topics, which she does not mind answering.[1] Asking about the Calamity pushes Uma to reveal that she was not alive for the event, but was born in an age called the Age of Burning Fields.[9] She explains that in time, the people and plants of Hateno recovered, but that Central Hyrule is still caught in the grips of Calamity Ganon.[10] She believes that older people may be able to tell Link more.[11]

Bringing up Hyrule Castle allows Uma to tell Link of what the Castle used to be like and how courageous villagers would seek out glory there.[12] Its current state depresses the old woman.[13]

Uma will relate how Hyrule Castle Town used to be a bustling wealth of diversity should Link ask about it, which also reminds her to tell the hero how he can find the fallen city on his map.[14] It makes her wonder at the scale of the Calamity's devastation.[15] Whenever she is finished answering a question, Uma will ask if Link would like help with anything else.[16] She will bid him farewell when he decides to leave.[17]
