Biography

Oracle of Seasons

Farore appears in Oracle of Seasons, where she reveals the secrets obtained as a result of a Linked Game.[4] She is hidden in the Hall of Secrets.[5] Farore carries a book titled "Farore's Memory." After completing a game, or starting a password-linked game, the book appears to the left of Farore, containing any linking passwords found so far.

Oracle of Ages

Farore appears in Oracle of Ages, where she reveals the secrets obtained as a result of a Linked Game.[6] She is hidden in the Hall of Secrets.[7] Farore carries a book titled "Farore's Memory." After completing a game, or starting a password-linked game, the book appears to the left of Farore, containing any linking passwords found so far.

The Minish Cap

Farore appears in The Minish Cap, where it is mentioned that she is a helpful person looking for a house.[8] She is one of the three women in the Happy Hearth Inn (along with Din and Nayru). In exchange for help finding a house, she will offer Link Charms, which can be stored in Empty Bottles. Farore's Charm turns Link's tunic light purple and increases both his attack and defense, though the offensive boost from Din's Charm is stronger, as is the defensive boost from Nayru's Charm.[9]

Farore
She's looking for a house in Hyrule to
move into. She's a very helpful person,
but people take advantage of her kind
nature. This really bothers her.

Trivia

  • There was originally planned to be a third game to accompany Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, entitled Mystical Seed of Courage, which would have presumably featured Farore as the main focus equally as Din and Nayru were in Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages. However, Capcom ultimately decided that it would be too complex to link three different games, so they abandoned the third game and integrated Farore into the two remaining games as the "Oracle of Secrets".
  • Her Figurine description in The Minish Cap could be a reference to how what was expected to be her game, Mystical Seed of Courage, was removed from what would have been a trilogy. The fact that Link can only find houses for two of the Oracles may be a reference to this as well.
  • The concept art for Farore shown in Hyrule Historia seems to indicate that she was originally planned to be a singer, a role assumed by Nayru in Oracle of Ages.
