Thinking about Great Fairy Queen now that my friends and I are doing a restart of our Zelda RPG…
Hmnh.. what if when the tension was just starting between the separate kingdoms in Hyrule she’d always managed to get close to and make friends with idealists who sought to speak out against the Empire’s growing arrogance and overreaching ambitions. Whether it be peacefully or with more violent dissent…. They never listened to her entreaties to be more cautious and keep their distance from the humans who viewed themselves as the children the goddesses selected to rule over the land. Until they slowly disappeared or were confirmed dead.. After the last. She made a conscious decision to avoid getting close to such people.
So she holds on tight to Beth and Tess… Especially after Hyrule’s betrayal against the Shiekan tribes that had pledged their loyalty to them… They tried to murder Tess… Despite the fact she hadn’t joined her companions that day to voice hers..and their growing displeasure towards the kingdoms mounting prejudice.
Queen would vehemently object to any reckless behavior, to anyone trying to rope Tess into some frail attempt at rebellion….. To threats.
Her regret from remaining passive all these years… cannot be measured.
Rogue butterflies are a painful reminder.
