Biography

Lulu is a member of the ever-popular Zora band The Indigo-Go's, of which she is the lead singer and daughter of the most famous singer the Indigo-Go's ever had.[1]

Shortly before their performance at the Carnival of Time, Lulu laid seven Zora Eggs and lost her voice. Not wanting Mikau to know about it, she went to see Evan, the leader of the band, who recommended her to take the Eggs to the Marine Research Laboratory in Great Bay Coast to have them checked.[3] Unfortunately, one night, Lulu heard a strange sound late at night in her room, and when she opened her eyes, saw the Gerudo Pirates entering her room. Despite her attempts to fight back, they were able to steal her precious Eggs.[4] She now spends the entire day in the Zora Cape gazing at the ocean. Only Evan, Mikau, and Toto actually know what has happened to her since Evan wants to keep it a secret as to not spoil everyone's hopes of playing at the Carnival of Time.[5] Despite this, Toto, the manager of the band, goes to Clock Town and talks to Madame Aroma to cancel their performance due to Lulu's condition.[6]

Mikau, having found out, tried to take back the eggs that were taken by the thieving women by going to their hideout, the Pirates' Fortress; however, he failed and ultimately ended up floating half dead near the Great Bay Coast, where Link finds the young guitarist and obtains the Zora Mask after playing the "Song of Healing" for him. Once Link retrieves all of the Zora Eggs from the Gerudo Pirates and Pinnacle Rock, the newborns will teach him the "New Wave Bossa Nova".[7] Playing this song for Lulu as Zora Link will restore her voice and open the way to the Great Bay Temple. If Link as a Zora talks to her before their Band Rehearsal starts, she will mention that the "New Wave Bossa Nova" was a song that her mother used to sing to her when she was little; however, since she was so young, she had forgotten the melody, and tells him that the Eggs were laid to remind her of the song.[8]

If Link plays the complete version of the "Ballad of the Wind Fish" for Toto in the Milk Bar, Gorman will overhear it and grow nostalgic. He reveals that the reason he entered the entertainment industry was to meet the singers of that song, including Lulu's Mother, who was also named Lulu.[9][10]

Lulu is last seen during the ending credits as she, along with the rest of the band members, perform a longer version of their rehearsal song at the Milk Bar during the Carnival of Time.

Other Appearances

Majora's Mask (Himekawa)

In the Majora's Mask manga by Akira Himekawa, Lulu appears after Link has first transformed into Zora Link via the Zora Mask and saved Lulu's Egg from the Gerudo pirates. As Zora Link walks up the shore of the Great Bay, Lulu mistakes him for the dead Zora Mikau. Link then pretends to be Mikau and informs her of his rescue of her Egg and helps her restore her lost voice.

Hyrule Warriors

Though Lulu doesn't appear in Hyrule Warriors, a reskin costume for Princess Ruto that is based on Lulu is available in the Master Quest DLC pack.

Nomenclature

Lulu means "pearl" in Arabic, possibly strengthening her connection with water. However, Lulu's Japanese name, ルル (Ruru), may simply be a corruption of her Hyrulean counterpart's name, ルト (Ruto).
