I swear every time I play that game I think that guy is links dead father who's come back from the dead to train in the art of swordsmanship.

He's Link from Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask.

You're not the only one, though. I thought that too before I heard about OOT Link being the Hero's Shade.

Ok so before I go any further, Terrific picture :D

So I've been doing ALOT of research on this guy and the games he's been in when he was alive and this is my theory :meow:

"The Hero's Shade in The legend of Zelda: Twlight Princess is actually The Hero of Time's/Link's deceased spirit from Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask. After being reconverted into a child and sent back in time at the end of Ocarina of Time, he lost his Hero status. But the reason his spirit is a shade is because he died being unable to be remembered as a Hero and having regrets on not being able to pass on his knowledge to future generations. I believe the reason this happened is because during the events at the start of Majoras Mask when Link fell down the hole in the tree, he physically died in the world of Hyrule but his soul/spirit passed on into the parallel world of Terminus hence why he has an epigy. Despite saving Terminus from destrution he was still not seen as a Hero and being already dead, was unable to pass on his knowledge to children of his own and therefore his spirit manifested into a shade made from his regrets of not passing on his teachings and not being remembered as a Hero"

*brain overload*
