HOLY FARORE I JUST REALIZED(AS IN, JUST NOW, ABOUT TO HIT POST) HIS ARMOR LOOKS LIKE A WOLF’S FACE GOLDENWOLF AAAH IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW
(And yes I subscribe to the ponytail headcanon :3)
So Queenie somehow sucked me in to her Hero’s Shade feels club and UGH THIS BAMF I CAN’T I ALREADY HAD TOO MANY FEELS OVER EVERYTHING ELSE DID YOU REALLY NEED TO DO THAT TO ME
I think of him as just being so bitter and lonely after waiting so long for another hero to come along, stuck in this limbo between the real world and the afterlife. Not to mention losing an eye…I’d be pretty bitter about that too. He’s so angry at TP Link when he finally comes along because the Hero is cutting it so close to the wire, when Zant has nearly taken over all of Hyrule, and he doesn’t want to see the same thing happen that happened in the Adult timeline, when OoT Link woke up to a ravaged world. He not only doesn’t want his work as the Hero to be for nothing, but also he doesn’t want to see the new Hero’s world fall to ruin - for he knows how terrible it is, and couldn’t bear if it happened again to any single person.
