Biography

Fi's Comment

A report, master.

Eldin

That is Eldin, the Fire Dragon. As the great protector of Eldin Province, he has power over fire.

Eldin is one of the three dragons who were gifted with the task of inheriting a part of the "Song of the Hero" by Hylia and teaching it to the chosen hero. Eldin is found by Link inside the Volcano Summit after the young hero escapes captivity from the local Bokoblins when Eldin Volcano has an eruption. Eldin explains that it was a burst of his power that caused the eruption.[3] After apologizing, he teaches Link his part of the "Song of the Hero". Eldin is known to be a storyteller, which is shown when Link returns to his lair. The Fire Dragon will tell various stories to the young hero, including the history of Eldin Volcano.[4]
