Link is the protagonist of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He is the first known Link on the timeline.


Link is a knight in training in the floating land of Skyloft. His whole life was spent above the clouds until his love interest, Zelda, was taken away by the Demon Lord Ghirahim, prompting a quest that would take Link under the clouds and eventually begin the cycle of the Spirit of the Hero as we know it today.
