From the introduction:
In the land of Hyrule, the evil king Ganondorf has just been laid low by a young boy dressed in green. People celebrated their savior and life returned to normal. But alas, all was not well. You see, the child ultimately had no desire to be a hero, nor to be hailed and revered as their savior. And so, he left. Taking his Ocarina, his horse, and the blessing of Princess Zelda, he set out to far away lands in search of something he had lost. Unfortunately fate and destiny - and the goddess of time - have an unfortunate tendency to play with the lives of ‘Heroes’, and so they drew him back along a specific path.
