The tale starts off with Link as he is living with his uncle deep in the vast western forest of Hyrule.
His uncle, a well-known blacksmith, took him in as his apprentice a long time ago. They spent weeks crafting
a beautiful ceremonial blade. Elegant and perfectly balanced, it was truly their best work to date.

It was announced that princess Zelda would soon be of age and wed, so a festival was at hand in her honor.
They packed all their belongings and set out for the city with the intent of presenting their blade as a gift.

Upon arriving at the borders of the city of Hyrule, Link and his uncle encountered soldiers everywhere.
By decree of the king anyone coming to the festival looking the least bit suspicious was to be arrested.
Carrying his blade, Link's uncle was apprehended. Link, being left behind, followed the soldiers into the city.

Link started asking around if there was a way to help his uncle out, but found that no one was willing to help.
Everybody was reluctant to even speak with him. It was as if they were all scared of being arrested themselves.

Several soldiers passed, escorting princess Zelda. Link recognized her and attempted to get her attention.
The guards took note and stopped him from getting closer, but the princess stepped in and quietly spoke to Link:
&quot;I do not know you, but you should not ask my help. I am but a mere prisoner, waiting for her arranged marriage...

Little options were left to Link. Something had to be done...
