Hyrulean

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Hyrulean,[1] also spelled Hyrulian,[2] is the demonym applied to all peoples that live in the Land of Hyrule, who may be of any race. Not to be confused with the Hylia or Hylians (which are a specific race), Hyrulean instead refers solely to the nationality of a person, be they Human, Goron, or Zora for example.
