From the introduction:
The Goddess Hylia welcomes you to the land of Hyrule, or what will be or used to be Hyrule, depending on when you arrive. Since time immemorial, the demon Demise and its incarnated hatred, Ganon, have plagued these lands, and the only true defense that the world has had against this constant threat is a pair of reincarnating souls, connected to a sacred relic known as the Triforce. A blonde hylian youth named Link holds the Triforce of Courage, the royal maiden Zelda holds the Triforce of Wisdom... but, as Tri indicates a third, the third piece is possessed by Ganon himself; the Triforce of Power. Up until now, this eternal conflict between three souls trapped in time has gone without any sign of disruption, no matter how the land or world might change around them. Even death on any side will not stop the eternal war... but you might. Whether a wanderer, a soldier, a hermit or a member of the elite, you hold the key traits of motivation, competence and capability, such that you may be able to win the war for your side of choice. Perhaps even take the Triforce for yourself, and become the villain Ganon wishes he could be. Your path is your own, your will is your own, and the land is yours to save or burn as you choose.
