Ordona is the Spirit of Light who protects the Ordona Province in Twilight Princess.[2] It resides in the Ordon Spring in Ordon Village.

Biography

Ordona tells Link of the other three Light Spirits and the reason for their existence; to protect Hyrule.[3]

When talking to Lanayru, it explains that the Spirits of Light other than Ordona were ordered to seal away the evil magic of the Dark Interlopers.[4] This could imply that Ordona was not present at the time of the incident, that the Ordona Province is not considered part of Hyrule,[5] that Ordona is the least of the Spirits as is does not share a relation to the Golden Goddesses, or that its exclusion was simply an oversight.

Trivia

  • The spirit appears in the form of an Ordon Goat, the indigenous animal of Ordon Village.
  • Ordona is the only one of the four light spirits not bearing a name that references one of the Golden Goddesses.
