Okay we have been making a lot of NPC's  already, but the main characters are a bit left out. This is also a bother as there can be conflicts or confusion surrounding them. So  with I create a few topics, where everyone can pitch in to help and the KoT staff will alter the first post to reflect the current setup of the character.

Name: Link
Age: 12 years old
Race: Hylian boy
Location: Hyrule
Description: Link's History is explained through dialog with the other gang members and will not really be shown anywhere. His backstory is that he is a young orphan boy taken under the wing of Farin. Link was young when he was orphaned and has only vague memories of his parents. He lives in the hideout at the poor side of Castle Town with the rest of the orphaned gang members.
When Link first meets Ganondorf he thinks that Ganondorf is the Gerudo King. Only later he will learn the truth.

Timeline:
- Link starts in the poor side of town, where he is instructed in basic thieving techniques by Anton (an older gangmember).
- As Link and Anton return home they come across Sykes who is Links's rival.
- Link accepts Sykes challenge to race across the rooftops. Where they end up in the town square.
- Link accepts a challenge for pickpocketing from Sykes, while he has trouble with it. But Link gets noticed by his target.
- Link and Sykes flee, but overhear at one point during the race home that the streets are crowded with guards due to Zelda. But the guards still block their way home.
- In a back alley Link meets a disguised Zelda, where they talk for a while. Only to be stopped by the guards and the victim of Link's crime.
- Link is also accused of kidnapping Zelda by Zelda's nanny. And he gets thrown in jail.
- The Gerudo King turns up at the jail house and negotiates Link's freedom. Although confused, Link goes with the Gerudo King.
- Link hears the background story of the King and his goals.
- Link is offered an apprenticeship with the King, but turns it down because he already belongs to the gang and is loyal to them.
- Back at the hideout, Link finds out from Sykes that Farin is arrested. Sykes accuses Link for causing Farin to be arrested and the other gangmembers gang up on him.
- Hurt, angry and rejected, Link returns to the Gerudo King to accept his apprenticeship.
- In the morning Link is sent to the tailor to get some new clothes (his green tunic) and the thief's bracers.
- Upon his return the Gerudo King tells Link his worries and an abreviated Triforce myth. Link accepts the Gerudo King's request and goes out to find the 4 cogs.
- Link gets his first sword and shield. He leaves Castle Town and sets out for the Forest dungeon.

- As Link returns each time with a new cog the darkness in the Gerudo King becomes more and more apparent.
- He occasionally crosses with Zelda and confides in her his adventures.

- Once all 4 cogs are collected the Gerudo King shows his true intentions to Link. Zelda comes in with the gang and Farin to help Link.
- Link hears from Farin that the Gerudo King is actually Ganondorf. And Link learns that Farin is the actual Gerudo King.
- Ganondorf asks Link who he believes and sides with. (Okay this is actually stupid)
- Link sides with Farin and the gang. (Well duh, he is most loyal to Farin)
- Ganondorf takes the cogs from Link and blasts him away.
- Link hears from Zelda where the entrance to the Celestial Clock is.
- Link sneaks to the entrance in pursuit of Ganondorf. Only to find the entrance already opened.
- Zelda Leads Link to the Master Sword and he pulls it out. Link then resumes his pursuit of Ganondorf.
- In the Celestial Clock Link meets up with Sykes and battle ensues.
- Link takes the Lightning Rod from Sykes and uses it to open the door to the Triforce. Ganondorf steps from the shadow while mocking Link for doing his work. (New item here, that either is new or was forgotten to be scrapped. Oh yeah major stupidity on Link's part to open the door with the cogs, after being told the cogs are the keys to the Triforce.)
- Epic fight: Link vs. Ganondorf. Big shocker: "Link defeats Ganondorf."

I don''t have much time at the moment, but a description will have to be build from the GDD and maybe added additional content to them.

Haha, Link isn't an NPC, but I agree, this will be helpful to straighten some things out.

12 is a pretty average age for this sort of thing :p (saving the world, that is). I prefer older characters, but it's easier this way and okay.

From the GDD, we know that Link is agile and determined, but has trouble with some thief techniques, such as pick pocketing (the bracers allow him to overcome this). This is because of his nature, which is "good", he's a hero and is innocent and pure and all, so doing something like stealing from others is kinda contradictory, so he isn't very good at it.

I've been kinda thinking Link hasn't been in the gang for years, but rather just a short amount of time. Not long enough that friends he's made cant turn against him, as Sykes does turn them, and particularly if Link is the newest member, he'd really make sense to be picked on.

I added the stuff from the GDD. I also stickied it, because it also show the main timeline. We can also add in here, when Link could first meet the accepted characters in the game.

If other staff disagrees with the sticky, then just remove it.
